Tips to Catch More Ontario Lake Trout

2020-02-04T17:55:06-08:00

By: Tom Armstrong Lake trout is my favourite species to target through the ice. In Thunder Bay I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by a multitude of ice angling opportunities for lake trout. Lake Superior offers excellent lake trout fishing as do many inland lakes. Lake Superior lake trout feed on smelt. Locally, and across [...]

Tips to Catching Northern Ontario Perch

2020-05-08T12:28:31-07:00

By: Tom Armstrong Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world. That brings visions of deep, crystal clear, cold water inhabited by a variety of large salmonids. While this is true the lake is diverse and also harbours a variety of warm water species. My favourite place to target warm water species through [...]

Northern Ontario Anglers Chasing Lake Trout

2019-10-31T08:54:21-07:00

By: Tom Armstrong Unrelenting cold temperatures have plagued Northwestern Ontario for months. It’s been cold, ugly, consistently -30C and the wind chills are brining us down to -45C. The frigid temperatures suck the enthusiasm out of most anglers. Hopefully, with March’s arrival we should be seeing slightly warmer temperatures. The end to the madness comes [...]

Northwest Ontario Ice Good for Walleye & Trout

2019-10-31T08:54:21-07:00

By: Tom Armstrong Cold temperatures and major snowfalls have winter in full force in Northwestern Ontario. As our lakes frozen early the region is covered in a layer of snow and ice. In fact, some anglers were drilling holes as early as November! Almost all area lakes are fishable through the ice. Many are even [...]

2019-10-31T08:54:15-07:00

By: Bojan “Bojangles” Zivkovic On the heels of an excellent big lake season our GTA rivers are plugged with salmon. Most Lake Ontario tributaries (east and west of Toronto) still have an abundance of salmon. I’m expecting the run to last at least a few more weeks. Meanwhile, Georgian Bay, Lake Huron and Lake Superior [...]

By: Bojan Zivkovic With the trout opener still a few weeks away I started off my late winter/early spring steelhead season by surf fishing and have found willing steelhead.

2019-10-31T08:53:43-07:00

By: Tom Armstrong The Chartreuse Fire Dye minnow was practically glowing on the tube jig as I dropped it down beneath the ice in search of an aggressive splake. Cameras were rolling inches from my face as we attempted to film Pautzke Outdoors on a remote Northern Ontario lake. I was jigging the bait about [...]

2019-10-31T08:53:36-07:00

By: Bojan Zivkovic This fall the majority Southern Ontario anglers noticed a later start to the salmon and steelhead season. Chinook ran in bigger numbers in October and many have been hanging around until now. Steelhead action didn’t pick up until mid October once water temperatures cooled. The runs are reminiscent of how runs were [...]
