Ice fishing is a lot of fun, Chris.  You should come out for a day of fishing with us this winter.

I have tried it but if your familiar with my style of fishing, which consists of covering lots of water and always moving from one area to another(when not catching fish), sitting in one spot staring at a hole in the ice just isn't my cup of tea. lol  If I ice fished the same way I fish in the summer I would have so many holes drilled in the ice after a few hours I could probably use my boat due to the amount of open water I created. lol

 sitting in one spot staring at a hole

 

heck I do that all summer long, standing instead of sitting, and no hole either.  Come on Chris, last year I bought $40 worth of spicy pepperoni for me and the boys!  I'll do it again this year too.

Nice, I haven't ice fished since I left Calgary 12 years ago.
The ice would get so thick by Christmas the you could park you truck on it. Handy for a warm up at -30.
I think I may try my hand if the ice gets thick enough on some of the lakes close to Halifax.

Was just reading another thread titled Bell and Cranberry lakes.
Muddy Gullies posted-
"Bell Lake is full of yellow perch, mostly small 6 inchers but some are quite big-over 12 inches. My son and I fished the lake for many years as the quantity was great for a kid -we've caught up to 35 fish in an hour and a half in the evening. But you need lots of worms for those-they will rob you blind. Never had much luck on the fly with perch. I've fished it as recently as two years ago."
Unfortunately, last year's winter ice fishing regs did not include that lake under Yellow perch and chain pickerel. "Halifax Regional Municipality: Morris Lake, Russell Lake, Grand Lake, Fish Lake, Bissett Lake, Grand Lake, Powder Mill Lake, Micmac Lake, Red Bridge Pond, Beaver Bank Lake, Beaver Pond(near Kinsac Lake),Lake Egmont and Kinsac Lake
I live Near Beaver pond, which is in fall river, so I may try it.
If memory serves I used to use maggots to ice fish perch.
