Good Evening all,
Have a cottage rented on Nosbonsing for the family day weekend with my wife and girls. Bringing my sled and ice fishing gear, wondering if anyone can provide any tips on methods for walleye/crappie in the lake.
Never fished walleye or crappie through the ice, Lake Simcoe is my home base where tip ups and spoons are my go to. Are they also effective on Nosbonsing? should I be fishing just off bottom? colours??
Thanks in advance for the help, very much appreciated. Also, will look up in the regs, but is there a slot size?

I would ask these questions to the guy you rented the cottage from, hopefully he will know the answers. The only reports so far this winter on Nosbonsing on here have been less than encouraging.

I haven't fished it yet this year as I've been enjoying the sled. Typically I fish the points and breaks going into 20-30 ft of water. Where are you staying?

can't say I can remember catching any crappies in Nosbonsing, lots of perch...pike too. Walleyes mainly at dusk. Rapala lures work good or jigging spoons (rattling) with a minnow.

No crappie that I know of..... hope I'm wrong and you get into them.
I've always had good fortune there when ever I scale down. All of my best fish on the lake have been with smaller stuff.

There are always a number of huts in the bay that feeds into the Kaibuskong River. I haven't ice fished that area but have caught pike, walleye and bass in there during the warmer months . No crappie that I know of in the lake, at least I've never caught one in the last 10 years that I've been fishing it. If you are portable, have an atv or snowmobile, I'd point hope that end of the lake. I've always manged to do well on any lake doing that. You'll see the areas with the huts set up and maybe find a spot around them They are there for a reason, just give them some space. It was a tough bite on the weekend from what I heard so here's hoping they turn on for you this coming weekend.
