With spring just around the corner and the open water season soon upon us, let’s take a few moments and shine some light on a recently new concept of Imprinting salmon by use of pens, and how some groups around the lake are helping to stock the fish we enjoy so much.
A Question of Colour
One thing you learn very early on when you live “Up North”, is that winter gives you plenty of time to ponder and reflect on things you might not normally spend much time thinking about (and I am certainly not immune). For instance; what effect does lure colour have on fish – muskies in particular?
Hole Sitting In Hard Times
Do you panic when conditions limit your ability to spread out over the ice? Extreme cold, deep snow or slush, bad ice/open water all make picking up and moving hard. When you’re limited to fewer or smaller fishing areas, do you think that puts you at a disadvantage?
Winter Pike Ice Fishing Tips!
Ontario’s pike offer anglers opportunities to fish for a species that are big, fat and most often very aggressive. Big, clear lakes have pike, so do shallow, muddy water lakes. There isn’t a part of the province where descent pike fishing can’t be found within an hour or two of your starting point.
To move, or not to move? That is a question anglers must answer every time they hit the water or the ice. Sometimes, it’s not the easiest question to answer either. And inevitably, you’ll end up making the wrong decision from time to time.
A Downsized Approach
They say that death and taxes are the only certainties in life, but I can think of another one. Slower fishing action during mid-winter. Especially when compared to early ice and late ice. By the time mid-winter rolls around, fish’s metabolism has bottomed out. It’s a dark and cold world under the ice and snow. Fish move slower at this time of year and successful mid-winter anglers compensate for this fact.
