Yeah I agree from my experience on Nip early Jan is better —- generally as winter gets colder and lake levels drop the bite slows then picks up in late feb early March. Of course there can always be exceptions ....

Too funny. That happened to us last year. Going up to Anglers Haven on the 31st. Hoping fish won’t be watching Super Bowl.

I heard March is good for big perch on Nipissing.
