Hi Italo,Where on lake simcoe ( cooks bay ) is a good spot to fish for pike without a boat and what is the best set-up?Posted on July 29th, 2019
Hi Paul, unfortunately there are not many places where you can have public shore-fishing access where you can catch pike in a productive area on Lake Simcoe, ON. You are better off going to Lake Couchiching, ON and fishing right in Orillia, ON downtown from their park shorelines and also the public shoreline at Tudhope Park and also fishing the shorelines at Centennial Park at the north end. During mid-day pike will be laying in ambush around the weeds out from shore but early in the morning they will cruise and feed right up to the shorelines so timing and covering as much shoreline as you can is the key when targeting pike from shore. To cover water you can “twitch” a Rapala Husky Jerk or Shadow Rap, cast & retrieve a Vibrax #3 spinner (if there aren’t too many weeds, or cast a wobbling 1/4 oz. spoon..God bless you.
