Hey guys,

I've recently started seeing a girl who lives on Canal Lake. I was wondering if anyone ice fishes the lake or does the current make it too sketchy? I assume with the google map searching I've done that certain parts of the lake are safe in the winter.

just curious is all....

Thanks in advance!!

I've got a cottage on canal and only ever tried to ice fish once.. was a little put off by the fact that it was a foot of ice, followed by under 2 feet of water. Definitely need to scout it for drop offs and such.

Let us know how you make out this season! Tons of perch, crappie and pike in the spring, figure they gotta be in there somewhere in the winter.

That reminds me of last year on Scugog when me and my buddy drilled through like 18" of ice or so to find 4" of water underneath.

I had a cottage there years ago and fishing was awesome. Was considering ice fishing lately, maybe I will check it out on a drive up north to Lake Getinmycar. Love it!
