Action was still good. They caught about 35 perch. Lenny and a friend also went ice fishing on Lake Simcoe and they caught about 25 nice sized perch. Some other friends went fishing on this past Saturday and they were over 120 feet of water and were catching some nice jumbo perch and whitefish. Roads will be a little slippery this week due to snow flurries. Most rivers and lakes are completely frozen over right now. Best bait is minnows.
