In Topic: good fishing from a canoe with trolling motor?

A canoe carrier will save your truck & your back turning the canoe into a wheelbarrow for your gear. Sail boats to go https://www.sailboatstogo.com/  Folding canoe & kayak cart https://www.sailboat.../CANOE_RIG/5059

This one has no through axle giving it more clearance to help avoid rocks & stumps. They are popular with canoe campers in the Provincial & National Parks on trails, portages or hydro lines like in Pukaskwa National Park. The front end should just pop up with the gear situated mostly in the back it pulls quite well. The MNR should be able to give you a list of lakes and rivers in your search area and the details.

Wayne if I were in your neck off the woods I'd probably target Largemouth Bass & Pike on small backwoods lakes in the Espanola area. I've watched Italo Labagnan on Canadian Sport Fishing https://www.canadian-sportfishing.com/ fishing a small backwoods lake in the Algoma District. The Stocked Lakes Brook Trout/ Splake Trout could also be of interest they make the best eating.

I usually fish from a canoe too I made a seat in the middle stuck a ram tube behind my seat and troll using a kayak paddle it works much better in windy conditions.

Best of luck!
