We see lot’s of walleye and perch ice fishing images in Ontario from Lake Simcoe, and the Bay of Quinte where the terrain is pretty flat and non-dramatic. Well Simeon Kubassek has been fishing in northern Ontario around Red Lake where the scenery is really beautiful.
Simeon Kubassek has been making the most of this cold winter in western Canada by taking advantage of the good ice and cold weather conditions. He was out recently to Walsh Lake and had some excellent fishing for real “jumbo” perch, landing some fish that were between 15-16″, that’s perch that weigh anywhere from 2 1/4-2 1/2 lb.!
In addition to catching the perch, he also gets his share of eating-size walleye. Walleye in northern lakes can use the same feeding areas in the winter as they do in the summer. Especially where there is little aquatic vegetation.
Simeon doesn’t have to fish far from shore, since he is working the first shoreline structure breaks from 10-20′ depth. Presentation is simple, either fishing minnows off the bottom, or jigging.
What a great way to get fresh air, have fun catching fish and enjoying fresh fish meals…way to go Simeon!
