Ice fishing in Explorers’ Edge: Bait and tackle shops

Ice fishing in Explorers’ Edge: Bait and tackle shops


A place that’s paradise for anglers naturally has quite a few spots to get your bait and tackle needs sorted out before heading onto one of thousands of lakes and rivers in the region. Bait shops can also give you some tips on where to find the hot spots, some heads-up on what you’ll find biting on the other end of the rod, and license information.

Many of the region’s accommodations’ providers also have bait and tackle available. Here is just a partial list of where to stock up for your next fishing expedition to Algonquin Park, the Almaguin Highlands, Loring-Restoule, Muskoka and Parry Sound. Get ready for a great season of fish biting all over Explorers’ Edge this winter.
