we fished scugog 2yrs ago in late oct. went 8hrs without a bite & no action on the graph. used minnows & pic rigs, tossed lures, & worm harnesses. nothin

let me know how you make out. hope your luck is better than ours.

thats just becouse of the excess of beer in the belly you don't have that problem when I take you out arnie!

there are great crappie, perch pike and large muskie in scugog. if fishing for the pike and musky I would use 20# braid and a large minnow 4 to 5" let it swim and wait for the bite. if you are going for the perch and crappie, then use a small 1/16 or 1/8 oz jig tipped with a micro tube. yellow, red /white, chartruce/ white. ect. with ior without a minnow tipper. I have used an 1/8 oz little cleo treble off and a long shank single before and jigged for them this has really worked in the norht bay and lake simcoe areas. hope this helps and enjoy the trip.

keepen'er afloat is always better than sinkin.

Binkley, dont forget about the pickeral!!

Pickeral and slab crappie are the most targeted, and dink perch seem frequent.. small jigs tipped with minnows, or even pickeral rigs. I believe the water is normally stained.

No pike in Scugog, plenty of musky, but, they are out of season right now.
Perch/crappie and walleye through the ice.
There will be plenty of guys/gals out there.

Good luck!!
