Hi Italo, Love your show since I was a teen. yep 20 years later I am still watching you on youtube. Anyway, I dont have a boat so I have been trying to look for bank/shore spots that I could fish with kids. Any good suggestions? I am from the GTA so a max of 1.5 hour drive radius would be great. Been thinking of getting a boat but the hassle is just too much at the moment. Want to kids to develop the same interest in outdoor activities. Thank you Italo.

Glad you are continuing to enjoy our Canadian Sportfishing, Here’s the Catch! TV shows and our shows/videos on our YouTube channel. A good location in your driving range is the Welland Recreational Canal right in Welland, ON. It’s approx. 11 km long, 400 yds wide, 30′ deep in the middle with weedlines running both sides of the canal.

Benjamin Chester catching Pumpkinseed off Thorold Rd., Welland Recreational Canal.

It is readily accessible and has many stretches of cut grass and even picnic tables and barbecue stands. It has lots of panfish and also bass & pike. Great place to take kids fishing with just a bobber and worm for panfish, or if they are bigger casting twitch-baits, spinners and shallow diving crankbaits for larger game fish.


Good access areas are from Lincoln St., Thorold Rd…God bless you.


Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our website.
