Took the little man out to the big lake in Muskoka for some weekend fishing. Had a late start around 9:30am, drilled holes from 31-55fow and settled on 42fow. My buddy had all the luck for the big whitefish, he managed two, he’s still out there I had to go as my son stepped in a hole. I did manage to get into the smelts though, on a simcoe bug tipped with shiner eyeball, ultra ultra light setup. I was schooling the boys on the smelts. Missed a few hits of higher calibre, likely whitefish. Had to leave by 12. Kept a nice feed of smelts for dinner, and one random perch. Despite the incident with the hole, my boy had a great time.

7” ice, only 2-3” black ice, amazing walking conditions and barely any wind. No huts required.

Slammed his minnow line 10 ft under the ice as he lowered it over 40fow. Chunker.
