Ice Fishing Adventure on Lake Nipissing
Last weekend I ventured the furthest north I’ve ever traveled in pursuit of fish. I was super excited for this experience as it would be my first time staying in an ice bungalow and sleeping overnight on the ice! It would also be my first time fishing on massive Lake Nipissing, the third largest lake in Ontario. The ice conditions haven’t been great at all this year at home (and in many places throughout the province), so a trip up north seemed like just the remedy. Joining me on this trip was my boyfriend Eric who is equally obsessed about ice fishing, and fishing in general (in fact it’s how we met). We were both anxious to explore new water and target walleye among other species present on this water body.
