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 Thursday February 7th 2013  from 7pm to 9pm at the legendary Briars Resort, 55 Hedge Road, in, Jackson’s Point (www.briars.ca)

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 and has had several top ten finishes in the Canadian Ice Fishing Championships. He won the Perchin for MS event with his son Izaak in 2011 and placed 3rd in 2012 when 200 teams competed. He taught ice fishing courses at Seneca College for 20 years and presents 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, and Just Fishing magazines. Wil writes the Hooked on Fishing column for Lake Simcoe Living Magazine which is available around the lake at many local businesses.

Wegman is excited about returning to Georgina. “Last time we were here in 2011, every seat in the house was filled and we had standing room only. The crowd in Georgina is great – and many are well seasoned veterans just looking for a tip or two to help them ice more fish.”    

Wegman’s power point presentation will focus on finesse ice fishing tactics with particular emphasis on how to catch more whitefish, lake trout, yellow perch and northern pike, from Lake Simcoe 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 thanks to HT Tackle. Admission is free … however everyone is asked to bring an assortment of non-perishable food items for the local Georgina Food Bank.

Ice Fishing Seminar Presenters Announced

We are pleased to announce two speakers for our Ice Fishing Seminar and Sale on December 1st.

Gerry Heels from Lowrance will be here presenting a seminar on ice fishing Lake Simcoe and other northern lakes for whitefish, lakers, and perch.  He will demonstrate Lowrance’s new ice fishing models for 2013, the Elite 4 Ice Machine and Elite 4x Ice Machine .  These two units are like supercharged X-67c Ice Machines!  Gerry’s tips on the electronics, and technique on the ice will surely help you improve your catch rate this year.

Simon Frost will be joining us for the day courtesy of Humminbird.  Unknown to many, Simon is quite the ice fisherman.  Better known for his bass fishing skills on Lake Erie, Simon transfers that knowledge of deep water electronics fishing to his ice fishing and will certainly teach you something about flashers and LCD sonars on the ice.

There will be some more speakers announced very soon!  If you would like to attend you can register with us by email icefish2012@radioworld.ca, phone 416-667-1000, or in person at Radioworld 4335 Steeles Ave W in Toronto.  We look forward to seeing you there!
