I've been living in T.O. all my life and thanks to my 8 year old's love of fishing have been forced to find areas closer to home! That's how I found this forum. My son and I were thrilled to hear the stories and see the pics of the various species of fish that can be caught at the Toronto Islands!! We made our first trek out there this past weekend. We started at Ward's and made our way west. We spent a lot of time just finding potential spots so we didn't fish as much as we would have liked.
We didn't get completely skunked as the boy caught a couple of small largemouths and some nice sized perch. We saw some bigger bass but they wouldn't take our lures or worms. We also saw a huge carp that my son wanted desperately to catch but to no avail!!
All in all we had a great time and will probably have more luck next time.
We are excited to find more areas close (or reasonably close) to the city to try for more fishing adventures.
