Ice Fishing

One of the most enjoyable spring traditions for families on the Lower North Shore is snowmobiling to a local pond and indulging in some ice-fishing fun. Bait (usually a worm) is lowered on a line through a drilled hole in the ice, where the challenge is to catch the biggest trout, and then haul the line up without losing it.
“Boil-ups” are usually part of the outing – where you collect wood to make a small fire, boil the kettle, and have a lunch in the great outdoors!

If you are looking to experience this aspect of local culture, be sure to consult with a resident about the ice conditions before setting out.

Ice Fishing

Most ponds and lakes are inland from communities, and you want to make sure you know how to get there – and back – safely.

Don’t be surprised if you come across a pond with upwards of 10-15 ice-fishing cabins atop. Many locals come in search of the biggest fish at their favourite fishing spots. Take a moment to stop and chat - you may just find out some tips that will improve your fishing style, and hear some great stories that will add to the experience!
