I'm sure that quite a bit of fishing has gone on in the last week, however the reports are slow to come. I'm going up to sandybay from the 16th to the 19th. I will give a report when I come back. In the meantime I would like to hear what has been happening on lake nipissing. . P.S. somehow we have to keep this forum a little busier.

Report from Greening Bay Cottages (Jan 7th):

This fish are finally and most definitely on!! Everyone nailed the walleye this morning and as of 9:30, the perch arrived. Also, another 8-9 lb. ling caught. Don't know what's up with that this year but hey, if you like "freshwater lobster", they're there for the taking. Sorry Joe. Looks like you left a day early but hey, thanks alot for the light!!

The fish are finally starting to really come on. Perch came in yesterday although they're not quite as abundant just yet. Lots of pickerel caught. Another big one caught during the morning run by Greg Crook, weighing in at 8.9 lb. See "ice fishing" page for a picture. I went out in the afternoon and missed quite a few but managed to get one keeper. The walleye are biting light in our area and are full of minnows. Word is everyone is catching pretty good on the lake right now.

Report from Greening Bay Cottages (Jan 9th):

Went out yesterday afternoon and fishing was excellent. I caught my limit in walleye and also about 15 perch, 3 of which were a really good size so brought them home. I'm telling you though, the wallys are tough to get right now. Just hitting very light and if you're not right on the line, you miss them. I had several on for a few seconds before they got off. I also had a 10+ lb. something on last night and got it up to the hole but lost it. Still don't know what it was as I only saw it's belly (which was white) so could have been a hog, ling or pike. It broke the line and took my hook at any rate. I was surprised I got it up as far as the hole because I knew the line wasn't going to hold it. Full moon and all, fishing's good right now.

Hey dickie,
2 of us were at SandBay from the 4th to 7th. It was one of the best trips for fishing we have had in a long time at Nip. Pretty sure I have seen on old board you mention Sandy Bay before so you know Jeff always has his huts in a productive area but the last few years have been tough. This year was great. Lots of perfect walleye just below the slot and plenty of big perch, many of which were reminding more of Simcoe size....
If Jeff has moved his huts to main reef when you get there he will get you to a good spot. If still on his first reef ask for hut 6. we had 2 days with just my buddy and I there and we went back and forth and kept going back to 6....
Good luck be sure to post how you do.

Hey skdmark,
Yes, when you login it takes you to the Lake Simcoe forum, all forums are child forms of the Simcoe Board. Once logged in, just click the green button "Lake Nipissing" and you should already be logged in here and ready to go. One login gets you into all the boards.
