    Default Where to go early season ice fishing

    Planning a trip, would like to go end of Dec. if possible. Looking for experienced advice which would be more likely to have safest ice by end of Dec...of course will wait for ice reports but wondering based on past experience which is best. Which lake is most likely to freeze first...

    Scugog
    Rice Lake
    Simcoe
    Nippising

    Looking at the long range forecast it is promising to be on rice lake by Christmas ( in protected back bays )

    I have been out on Simcoe before Christmas and just after for the last few years..... Virginia Beach area freezes first or Couchaching which is basically Simcoe anyways.

    is it a far walk from the shore or would you need a snow machine? last year we were at pfefferlaw or however you spell it and walked out over a mile without a snow machine...was told we needed to go further out.

    Vb is 1 to 2 km walk depending where you are fishing. Do you have the navionic app?

    We are looking at a Simcoe trip or two as well. I don’t hold out much hope for St. Clair according to the forecasts....

    If your willing to go as far as Nipissing what about an another hour further north to the Temigami area.
    Last year we were fishing between Christmas & New Years. The year before not as good but did get out.
    There most things in season other than lakers. Even some spec lakes.
