Hot Lake Trout Bite On the Niagara Bar

2020-05-08T12:27:22-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer For more than 15 years I’ve been hoping to fish the Niagara Bar. Meanwhile, the one-to-two times a year we’re able to fish the Lower Niagara River conditions haven’t been right. In fact, our local pros joke about how I bring the worst weather possible with me every time I fly in. [...]

Tips to Catch More Ontario Lake Trout

2020-02-04T17:55:06-08:00

By: Tom Armstrong Lake trout is my favourite species to target through the ice. In Thunder Bay I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by a multitude of ice angling opportunities for lake trout. Lake Superior offers excellent lake trout fishing as do many inland lakes. Lake Superior lake trout feed on smelt. Locally, and across [...]

Northern Ontario Anglers Chasing Lake Trout

2019-10-31T08:54:21-07:00

By: Tom Armstrong Unrelenting cold temperatures have plagued Northwestern Ontario for months. It’s been cold, ugly, consistently -30C and the wind chills are brining us down to -45C. The frigid temperatures suck the enthusiasm out of most anglers. Hopefully, with March’s arrival we should be seeing slightly warmer temperatures. The end to the madness comes [...]

By: Dustin Slinker We are well into ice fishing season in North America and I continue to load up on bait. When packing my gear before setting out on an adventure to target multiple species I make a trip to the grocery store and pick up uncooked shell on tail on shrimp from the seafood [...]

Niagara River Fishing Well – When Water is Clear

2018-04-18T18:58:47-07:00

By: Ted Kessler It’s been one of the toughest steelhead seasons I’ve seen in at least 20 years on the Lower Niagara River. We need ice on Lake Erie for our season to be good and this is the second season in a row we haven’t had ice. If there’s ice on Erie, Lake Erie [...]

This year a few friends and I decided to check it off the bucket list and booked a charter with Manufactured Mayhem Sport Fishing out Erie (PA) to catch lake trout. Our goal was to land [...]

By: Chris Shaffer Frank Campbell’s rod was bent almost in half and I scurried to grab the video camera as line continued to peel off the reel. Floating down the middle of the Niagara River the way this fish was fighting and taking us into heavy, turbulent current I was sure this was going to [...]

Jig For Ontario Lake Trout

2019-10-31T08:52:34-07:00

By: Bojan Zivkovic After a fun filled fall and early winter targeting salmon and steelhead in Southern Ontario I always look forward to putting the long rods down as ice fishing season approaches. It’s a change in pace and more relaxed. Unfortunately for ice anglers it’s an El Nino year and the warmer air has [...]

By: Bojangles Many die-hard river anglers already know that the Niagara River boasts an amazing fishery for both warm and cold water species within an hour’s drive from the GTA.
