Hello all,

Came up to North Bay for school and am new to fishing Nipissing. Where Iím used to fishing isnít a large area so Iíve never really used any electronics.

Iím sure lots of you donít use electronics either so I was looking for peoplesí experiences fishing Nip without electronics, or any special things to know.

Thanks in advance

Welcome aboard Kyfish. I would say fishing just off the bottom about a foot or two up would probably be your best bet without electronics. A simple single hook with a minnow with a split shot works well up there jigging or just dead sticking. Keep your minnows fresh.

Good luck

Electronics on the water/ice have become almost necessary for many fisherman nowadays. That said, you donít have to spend hundreds of dollars to get started. Iíve got a few electronic toys, but the single most important tool for me is the Navionics app on my phone when I go out on the ice. Iím sure a lot of guys would say the same, and it costs about $20. Check it out and learn a little about what you need to be looking for on the maps when youíre targeting a particular species. Good luck out there!

Yes, the Navionics app is super useful to get you to productive water. Great price too. I use it all the time.

Thanks for the replies guys. Just downloaded Navionics and have started to look. Seems to be that the spots that look good seem to be the same places where the huts are. Weird coincidence. Weíll see what this week brings. Possibly a day on the lake
