Ice Fishing For Pike And Pickerel On Lake St. John

Author: TromblysTackleBox
Date: January 7th 2013

Good reports coming in for pike and pickerel fishing on Lake St. John. Recommend using a williams lure, tipped with a minnow. Access to Lake St. John is along Rama Road (Simcoe County Rd 44) along the east side of Lake Couchiching. Follow this road north to either Airport road or Longford Mills Road. Both roads lead to the lake. The lake access at Longford Mills puts you into a walkout bay where there is pike. If you follow Airport Road, that takes you to a point with good fishing for walleye and pike.

Were do you get these reports?? i have been fishing on lake st.john for over 25 years. You used to be able to get an abundant amounts of walleye from the limestones and near the islands in the far end. The pike have killed this lake. Used to get 5-10+ in just a few hours. Now you could spend days on the ice and not even mark one!!! The lake has been wayyyyyy over fished and if people keep telling everyone there is good walleye there will surely be all gone very soon! The population of walleye is already badly been hurt. I personally think they should close the season on them for 5-10 years and allow the walleye to make a come back. Only ones left seem to be 4-9lb range. from my fishing days i would say this is a terrible sign! very few 12"-20" range which means very few surviving that will hit maturity and re-spawn!! LEAVE THE WALLEYE BE!!! OR THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER ONE CAUGHT HERE AGAIN!!! CATCH AND RELEASE IS OUR ONLY CHANCE!!

for the record: first weekend of jan. 2013 over 300+ people on the ice. Herd of only 2 walleye being caught. one over 8lbs and one 6lbs. You do the math?? 300 people and only 2 walleye? 15 years ago it would have been 100 people and 200-400 walleye!!! IF we dont teach the young to give back to the lake we wont have much of a lake to give!!
