one of my favourite things about lake nipissing is the variety of fish, sometimes it can hold many surprises, we've all read about there being 40 different species, i'm interested to hear what other species others have found on the end of their line beyond what I have actually caught. cheers!

pike
small mouth
largemouth
walleye
muskie
white bass
perch
burbot
rockbass
sunfish {pumpkinseed I believe}
gar
catfish {brown bullhead I believe, correct me if i'm wrong}
whitefish
freshwater drum
sturgeon {I have never caught one unfortunately but I know they're there}

I love it when I can catch something and add it to my list. its one of the reasons I fish with different baits and techniques, I have caught some small minnows before as well fishing off the dock with worms but I cant tell you their identity.

Ling are somewhat different than Catfish, more the cod family I think or so i was told.
Burbot are smaller and have needle sharp spikes near its head.I didn't goggle it but have caught both in Nip

Hey Kenster,

I think you might be thinking of the name Barbotte which is another name for a bullhead catfish whereas a burbot is another name for a ling. You are right the ling is a freshwater cod.

Caught our first White Bass while bottom bouncing for walleye. Fished the lake for years and that was the first one ever.

With that said, Mud Puppies are not Fish; they are Salamanders.

Correct, and I can confirm they're in Nipissing, having caught many of them.

Caught this one this morning although it didn't put up much of a fight

I think it's related to the sockeye family
