NORTHERN ONTARIO ICE FISHING FORECAST by Gord Pyzer
SNOW NEWS IS GOOD NEWS
According to our resident expert, this winter is shaping up to be like the ones from your childhood.
Oh, what a difference a year makes.
Last year at this time, I was reporting on the spectacular black crappie fishing I was enjoying in Northwestern Ontario while trolling in the boat, wearing a hoodie and light sweater. This year, I've already put the Kingfisher to bed and I am trudging through more snow in the bush than we had on New Year's Day. I even took the snowmobiles out for a short run on Halloween, just to say I was driving in the white stuff in October.
The kid never leaves you.
Oh, yes, and the lake where I was crappie fishing in the boat this time last November is now completely frozen.
