Hi Roberge. I believe a big issue with some of the recent responses has been your constant backpedaling. My original quote of the post you since deleted still has the information where you said you were looking forward to going back today to specifically target more bass. I was not trying to judge your actions from yesterday, you may have not understood the rules. I was calling out your decision to go back today and wanted to make sure you understood that doing so would be illegal.
Instead of accepting this information, you have just been trying to modify the conversation to justify your actions and remove any indication of intent. The vehemence with which you are doing this is just making it look like you were aware that what you were doing was illegal and you were doing it anyways but figured no one would call you out on it.

Instead of more back and forth accusations and attempts to change the conversation, let's just consider this a learning opportunity for everyone and drop it now shall we?


For everyone following along.

Don't target out of season fish, even if you plan to release them, it is illegal.

If you do catch more than one or two specimens of an oos fish, it is your responsibility to try to change location and/or bait to avoid catching more of that species.

If you do catch an oos fish, please try and get it back in the water with as little fanfare as possible. The ministry hasn't been 100% clear on the issue, but from what I have read there is a chance that a CO could charge you if you keep a fish out of the water long enough to get a picture before releasing it, and posting pictures of OOS catches on social media will only encourage more of the same behavior from others.

Here is an image of a lovely kawartha catch that is in season. He was released right after the hook was taken out, so you can go and try to catch him too!

I have fished 3 times in the kawarthas this winter all in different locations and with microbaits designed for panfish and I am getting largemouth everywhere. They are mixed in with the bluegill, perch and sunfish. It seems that every time you move to a new area you get more bass. I really don't think they are being targeted, they are just everywhere there are weeds. I am talking 20+ bass a day. they are becoming quite annoying.

You can avoid the largies by fishing simcoe lol.
Maybe some Whitties and jumbos ,we all know a few Whitties are better than the little pans your chasing. . I can annoy you out on the ice so the bass don't have too lol. Hope your season turns around and you can find what your looking for.

Hey Tim I love eating panfish and the only whitefish or lakers I would eat are from northern lakes. Can't stand whitefish compared to any panfish.

While we are on this topic I have a cottage in the Kawartha Lakes was thinking of going ice fishing next week up there and setting some tip ups in areas I was getting pike in last year attempting to cut down there population, I was just going drill some holes and set up a tip up on a single hook with a large chub either dead or alive. Is there anything illegal about doing this before I do it? Thanks

Pike are open all year in zone 17. You can use two tip ups you just need to be within 60 meters with an unobstructed view at all times. Oh, and if you catch a bunch of bass it's time to switch areas.
