Fishing industry in Windsor-Essex shut down

All public boat launches and marinas in the City of Windsor have been closed

The onset of COVID-19 happened to coincide with the annual run of walleye into southwestern Ontario and that means big losses for local fishing guides and other fishing-related businesses.

"The guides are suffering right now, I know a lot of the local bait shops are suffering. It's tough," fishing guide Kyle Moxon said.

Moxon said this is prime time for the local fishing industry normally with many tourists visiting the region from elsewhere in Canada, the U.S. and other countries to take advantage of the annual walleye run into the Detroit River.

"We get millions and millions of walleye that enter the river," Moxon said. "This goes on from April all the way on to early June."

minnkota, too bad. It was one of the greatest places of fishing industry. Nowadays I simply seat at home and read useful resources like Fishstainable where they share some fishing stories and basic blog information about this and that from the fishing industry. I would love to see more resources like this one on the web.
