My wife Barbara & I spend Saturday travelling across Lake Simcoe, ON in search of actively feeding whitefish. We started by checking the waters north of Georgina Island, about 4 miles out from the Virginia Beach, ON access. Fishing was slow there and no one had hooked a whitefish. We received reports that some whitefish were being caught out from Beaverton, ON, but with no reliability. On Saturday afternoon we made the long run with our Yamaha 4 x4 to waters on the west-shore of Lake Simcoe, about 2 miles out from Snake Island. Within a few minutes of getting there we saw the first whitefish landed in about 75′ of water. The next day the camera crew, Tom Moore and Jeremy, from Burlington Cycle (joined us with another Yamaha Grizzly 4 x 4), and James Beaupre, a trohpy Lake Simcoe whitefish angler. We followed James to an area where he had caught lots of whitefish two days prior and with the help of one of his fishing friends, we were catching whitefish by noon.
We covered a few miles to locate the fish and thanks to our Yamaha 4 x 4’s it made it easy. Barbara ended up landing 3-trophy fish using the Blue Fox Lil’Foxee Jigging Minnow fished in 100′ of water. The end result, one dynamic TV show!!
