I'm thinking about trying to get a trip together with me and my good buds this winter, hopefully a 3 or 4 day venture. Being from london we don't get a whole lot of good ice fishing in without driving 3 hours each way to simcoe
What I'm looking for is some recommendations where we can fish mid-January and (hopefully) catch a couple lakers and pike. I was thinking lake nipissing but we'll be on foot with a pop-up tent and its a pretty big lake (money is tight for all so we'll be going for cheap accommodations, a hut rental is probably past our budget)
Is there a smaller lake that anyone would recommend thats within a 6 hour drive of london i.e.south of sudbury where we can hopefully hook into some big fish, and if that fails do some solid perching? Or can you reach some good spots on nipissing by foot within a 45 min walk?
If theres someone who is local around there who would show us around a lake in exchange for a couple beers and some good conversation, even better!
Thanks in advance
