Lake Simcoe Ice Fishing Seminar

Wil Wegman Returns to Host Ice Fishing Seminar in Georgina

Lake Simcoe: Former Focus on Fishing newspaper columnist for the Georgina Advocate and award winning outdoor writer Wil Wegman will be hosting another ice fishing seminar in the Town of Georgina. He will present on Tuesday January 18th from 7pm to 9pm at De La Salle Chapel Hall, 1940 Metro Road East in Jackson’s Point.

Wegman, who won the 2006 Perch Trap Attack on Simcoe was also a member of Team Canada at the World Ice Fishing Championships in 1991. He taught ice fishing courses at Seneca College for 20 years and has presented his popular ice fishing seminars from Sudbury to Toronto and from St Catharines to Ottawa.

His ice fishing articles have been published in Ontario Out of Doors, Outdoor Canada, Real Fishing, In Fisherman, Lake Simcoe Living and Just Fishing magazines.

Wegman’s power point presentation will focus on ice fishing Lake Simcoe with particular emphasis on how to catch more yellow perch, northern pike, whitefish and lake trout during the winter. “Lake Simcoe is a huge body of water and receives more fishing pressure than any other inland lake in the province. With all that hard water and all those other ice anglers, it can be a daunting lake to try and figure out. I hope ice anglers walk away from the evening having learned a thing or two to help them understand the lake and its fish a little more,” he said.

With that knowledge and the tips and tricks Wegman will reveal on how to catch those fish … ice anglers of all skill levels are sure to find the evening both entertaining and rewarding. I’m especially happy that Lowrance Electronics and Navionics rep Gerry Heels will accompany me and offer anglers some incredible insight into the sonar units used for ice fishing. He will also provide great tips on how to maximize the performance of these units while using the latest Navionics map chips during the winter”, said Wegman.

An incredible array of draw prizes will be awarded, including a few specially earmarked for those youngsters under 16 and for all the women who attend.

Admission is free … however everyone is asked to bring an assortment of non-perishable food items for the local Georgina Food Bank
