Default fishing anyone?

anyone here like to fish? up north with the kids right now and have had a few opportunities to get out on lake simcoe. have caught lots of bass, but haven't seen any pike yet this year. this lake has tons of different species if you know where to look, so it's a cool place to be.

anyone?

Love me some fishing. one of the things I miss about Ontario.
used rent a cottage or camp every summer. forgot where it was though.
mostly ended up catching sunfish... and a couple crabs. everyone else was getting trout, bass or walleye

what do people use as bait? I used corn

minnows have given me the best results on simcoe, but i use mostly crankbaits and rubber. i have just heard of these guys: Lunkerhunt - Revealer Tube and want to give their stuff a shot too.

I remember growing up, my cousin absolutely loved fishing. I went with him a couple times and I hated it. As an adult I've gone a couple times with friends and again disliked it. Then again I don't eat much fish either. lol


Give it a shot though, you might like it.

My best time fishing was way up the coast of BC, based out of a tanker with mobiles on top of it, right in an inlet where a good number of Salmon go. I also caught a halibut that was likely bigger than me, but couldn't get him up from the bottom. I felt lucky not to be pulled out of the boat. Chinook salmon are great fun, and challenging to get in the net, with only single hooks allowed. And the scenery alone, along with the sea otters, seals, and eagles, made the quieter times enjoyable.

Yeah my parents and I have started fishing again.

We didn't have that much luck all year. We usually go fishing under a bridge in Welland. It had tons of fish the last few years but the spot was pretty much empty so far this year. What spots do you go on in Lake Simcoe?

We don't have a boat so can you recommend somewhere to fish from the shore?

fishing from shore here is a bit tough. you need to find a big drop off to deeper water - i find it kinda pointless to fish from shore in 4-5 feet of water in mid summer because all the big fish are deeper and you get nothing but rock bass, sunfish and perch.

i really only know cook's bay - at the south end of the lake. it gets fairly deep off roaches point. i also think there is some good shore fishing in barrie, in kempenfelt bay. it is a narrow bay and also the deepest part of the lake. that's where the lake trout is.

you can always charter a boat here. there are lots of options and the fishing is better.

Im looking to buy new freshwater fishing rod. Something that would be good all around rod (for, bass, trout, pike etc) any suggestions?

Thanks for the suggestions trane. We used to go to Barrie frequently. It was best during the late summer-early fall season though.

Sucks to fish without a boat.

I like fishing but I can't hold a live fish. I shriek like a little girl when it moves in my hands and I drop it. In May I caught a few bass that I had to release (not bass season) and one Laker in Kioshkokwi in Algonquin. The year before we went into the middle of the park where there was no Bass so Brook Trout were easy to catch.

Its a hobby I've always been interested in learning. Unfortunately I've never done it and I don't know anyone who fishes so I could learn from them. Someday I guess..

you can catch decent sized fish at some lakes without a boat. there are also artificial lakes that let you rent a rod and fish. good for beginners.

just go to bass pro shops in vaughan and talk to the guys there. i'd say get something 6'6" or so, medium weight and not too expensive. spend your money on the reel.
