How do I know that the ice will be safe?Safety is our #1 priority. We brief our clients on ice safety before every trip. We perform routine daily checks of ice conditions and monitor weather forecasts. Simply put, we do not take risks. If weather or ice conditions are not 100% safe, we will not head out. We also provide each client with a set of premium boot cleats to prevent any slips or falls on the ice.
Do you have a fish guarantee?Sometimes the fish just aren’t biting. It is an extremely rare occurrence, but we understand that it happens. Our guides do their very best to bring clients to the most bountiful fishing grounds. However, in the case that nothing works, we will enact a Fish-On Ice Fishing guarantee. If you are not happy with the fishing during the day of your experience, your next trip will be 30% off.
How can I prepare for my upcoming trip?Please dress for winter conditions. Although the shelters are very warm and cozy, it may take some time to set up these shelters. Please dress in layers, remember to bring gloves/mittens, wear wool socks, hats, and your boots. We also recommend that you bring sunglasses. Lastly, please bring your valid Ontario fishing license. It is required by law and allows you to fish public waters within Ontario. You can purchase a fishing license from certain outdoors stores or online here: https://www.huntandfishontario.com (Children under the age of 18 and adults over the age of 65 do not require a fishing license but do require some form of identification.)

What We Fish For
Lake Simcoe is famous for its yellow perch fishery. There is an abundance of yellow perch, and they all eat very well. They get HUGE! Perch are a schooling fish, meaning that the action is consistent, predictable, and incredibly fun. Perch is our specialty, and because each one of our clients is given their own personal underwater ice fishing camera, it is an exciting opportunity to see these fish attack your lures in real time. They taste excellent and are easy to fillet, which is why our fresh perch fish tacos are such a hit with our clients.
When fishing for yellow perch, we will usually run into a pike or two, as they live in the same waters and prey upon perch. Pike are ferocious carnivores, weighing up to 15 pounds. Pike are extremely powerful fish and put up an incredible fight. It is an exhilarating experience to see one come out of nowhere and charge at your lure.
