Does anyone do any ice fishing in the HRM area - or do the lakes even freeze up enough to get on them. I know the winters are getting milder. If not ice fishing how about winter pickerel fishing?

Lots of folks ice fishing, the hrm lakes have had good ice the last few years. Pickeral through the ice are a bit of a challenge sometimes I find you have to put the time in, the stocked Rainbow lakes produce well. As the season approaches people will start posting.

i would be fishing high harvest fisheries untill dec.31, and i am assuming the lakes won't be frozen solid yet. I appreciate your concern for the regulations being upheld, thank you.

Jurme, thanks for the correction, I'm looking in the book and December 31st is more the rule than the exception, including trophy lakes. I don't remember this being the case.

Cheers

not sure about bass
but picks can still be caught from shore
might go abit longer between fish though
and i have found really late in the season or really early in the season
a bait that imitates a small pickerel tends to produce the best
i used a 6in pike patter rapala for late season picks and bass and its deadly

well ive been waiting till it got a bit closer to the season to reply
but like greg says lots of us guys in the hrm are into the hard water
ice has been good the few years running so heres hoping this year will follow suit
