Manitoulin Fishing at it’s best!
See the side bar for more details on:
Lake Trout: Manitou is well known for lake trout fishing. Open from January first right through to the end of September, there are many ways and opportunities to catch some great lakers. Common sizes are 3lbs and 6 lbs.
BASS: Watch your kids catch their first bass off the docks, If you’re here in the fall the dock produces some 1-2and3 lbs smallmouth. Boat anglers have a great chance at great bass.
