Hi Italo,I bought some fishing equipment from a videographer that worked for you and he said you are friendly to reach out to for advice. I recently bought a motorized canoe to go fishing with my brother this season. I have caught perch through the ice on cooks bay but mostly dinks. I would appreciate any help on where I can find mud flats known for jumbo perch in the spring on lake simcoe as we do not have a fish finderThank you,JayPosted on April 16th, 2021
One of the best locations on Lake Simcoe, ON is Virginia Beach. Normally it’s protected from wind so it’s ideal to fish from a small craft like a kayak, canoe or small tin boat. The perch are mixed in size there and if you move around you should not have any problem finding 8-11″ fish. Try fishing close to the main shoreline in 3-4′ of water in the vicinity of the pier where the boat docks are. Then try fishing in the middle area and lastly try fishing off the Georgina Island shoreline. You don’t need a fish finder, just cast in all direction and let your lure sink to the bottom before working it.
My best results there have been using a 1/8 oz. jighead with a 2 1/2″ Lunker City Fin-S-Fish minnow on 10lb test braided line. I fish the minnow close to the bottom and jig it gently and also reel it in slowly along the bottom. There is a nice mix of vegetation throughout that bay…God bless you.
