The 2023 ice fishing season has begun in Canada, and with it comes the perfect opportunity to plan your next adventure on the ice. To assist in this endeavor, FishingBooker, the world’s largest online platform for finding and booking fishing trips, has released a list of the best ice fishing destinations in Canada.
Among the featured destinations is the nearby Bay of Quinte, located between Napanee and Belleville, just south of Shannonville, Ontario.
The Bay of Quinte area is well-known among ice fishing enthusiasts for its various “honey holes”: a particular spot in a body of water, or an entire body of water, where conditions are ideal for catching fish. Trenton Bay, located where the Trent River meets the Bay of Quinte, and Telegraphs Narrows and Hay Bay a few kilometers south, are all popular spots.
Additionally, the Bay of Quinte region is considered one of the best spots in the province for catching walleye. But the winter season also offers ample opportunity for catching bass, pike, and panfish.
FishingBooker’s list of the 9 best ice fishing destinations in Canada for 2023 also includes: Lake Nipissing, Ontario; Tobin Lake, Saskatchewan; Cold Lake, Alberta; Lake Erie, Ontario; Lake of Two Mountains, Quebec; Lake Laberge, Yukon; Logan Lake, BC; Great Slave Lake, N.W.T.
