Crotch Lake in Algonquin Provincial Park. There's some good bass fishing, should be pike and you're about 30 minutes lazy paddling from the put in.

Really?? I hate to sound mean, but it takes years to find good reliable bass holes with no one around & I won't share 'em on a public forum, anymore than I share my hot Wild Turkey spots......

Do your homework & scouting - you'll find your spot...... :)

Well, I like eatin' 'em........I also shoot & eat rabbits & grouse when they're in season while I'm on a trip. I don't carry other meat, so, yeah, I keep 'em..... :)

Just to show there's no hard feelings - try the lakes in and around the old Frost Center lands - lots of bass, pike, and splake - take a look here:

Have a good season! :)

Pike? Really? I've been a frequent visitor (cottager, camper, tripper) to the Highlands since I was 6wks old, and fished for at least 50 yrs. I know there's musky lakes, but have never known of pike in the area.

Guess I'll have to do some research!

Yep. They're there. Promise. Think east of Lake of Bays, South of Algonquin Park.......... :)

Mirkydog, what time of year would you want to go? That obviously influences what species would be biting (and legal) at the time, and in turn what lakes are worth fishing.

Easiest best fishing with paddle to campsites would be the Mass IMHO

Ummm that would be like pretty much anywhere in Manitoba? Lucky us yes. I would say good luck with any place around GTA. Although I grew up on Lake Erie and had pretty good luck there. I hear that has changed though.

We do mostly catch and release but usually keep enough for supper. Of course we just fish, we dont care what we catch as long as we are catching.

Personally I do my grouse hunting with a 1/2 ton truck...lol.
