Hi Italo, i live in pickering and i am wondering what is the best local spot that is a reasonable distance that i can open water fish. Where would you think my best chances of catching are, the species doesnt matter to me at this time of year.Posted on January 3rd, 2019
Hi Alex, the closest spot to you is Duffin’s Creek. I hear today that ice is forming on the banks, but it’s still fishable and if temps get milder, it will be even better. Best bait to use there is fresh salmon or steelhead roe bags. Single soft-beads like the https://cleardrift.ca/ , will also work well drifted under a float naturally along the bottom. If you like to fish artificial lures a Luhr Jensen Kwikfish in size #7 is also good reeled in slow along the bottom in the deeper pools.
