Hi Italo, Hope you are doing well. I would like to take my family/kids for shore fishing and catch some fish around GTA area. Can you please recommend any location where we may go this weekend and try to catch fish. What kind of fish we may get and what would be the presentation ? Thanks for your help.Posted on August 18th, 2016
Hi Habibur, I would encourage you to drive down to Welland, ON (1 1/2 hr from GTA), where you can fish the Welland Recreational Canal right in town. It is about 11 km long, 300 yds. wide, 30′ deep in the middle with weedlines growing down each shoreline.
It has good shoreline access with cut grass and walking paths including barbacue stands and picnic tables. You can catch panfish like bludgill, pumkinseed, rock bass and perch on just a worm, hook & float, or if you want to catch largemouth & smallmouth bass, and pike, just cast small Rapalas or #2 Vibrax spinners along the weeds. There are many places to access the canal, one if off Thorold Rd. & the other Lincoln St. in Welland, ON.
