Good morning Italo,I am trying to plan out my first ever ice fishing trip and was wondering if you had some pointers for this lake. Orangeville Ontario – Island LakeCurious where you would fish and what gear you would use. Thanks in advance,JasonPosted on January 18th, 2022
Hi Jason, Island Lake is well known for producing Pike all season long and through the ice. I would fish 5-7′ water near weeds with a tip-up or set line and live minnow. You can fish one line with a live minnow and use a 3/8 oz fluttering spoon on a jigging rod. While your set-line waits to get a strike you can cut several holes around it and alternate jigging the spoon in each one. Pike like to feed around weeds all season long and finding green weeds will be a key. For some of the bigger pike, try and find weeds in deeper water.
