ACTIVITY DETAILS — MANITOULIN ISLAND ICE FISHING
Perch, Pike, Trout, Walleye
Stay at a fantastic cottage that rents out during the summer months for $1,300.00 or more. Enjoy a full kitchen, satellite TV, likely lots of fish, and privacy.
If you don’t have your own portable ice hut let us know and we can rent you one.
The winterized Manitoulin cottages are centrally located and provide quick access to all the inland ice fishing lakes. Since Manitoulin is an island within Georgian Bay you can also fish the bay, which may only be frozen over in spots. Just because a body of water is listed does not mean that it is currently safe for ice fishing.
Please Note that it is your responsibility to ensure that you have a proper license and that the fish you are catching are in season. Ministry of Natural Resources Publications Web Site can provide full details on regulations for fishing. Lake Kagawong is in Map C, Division 28.
