LIKE TO FISH?
Manitoulin Island, as everyone knows is the largest island in fresh water in the world.
But Manitoulin itself is also home to over 100 lakes of every size and depth in addition to numerous small but productive rivers and creeks, some of which flows out to Lake Huron and others to the North Channel.
So think of it: a nice big island, but not too big to explore thoroughly, and inside it are conveniently located numerous easy-access lakes that are often ‘specialty lakes’ for only a few game species but, taken together, Manitoulin Island is one fine fishing hole where anglers can methodically set about catching just about any game fish they may desire, and all within easy driving distance of this fine property.
You can fish right in front of your property on LORNE LAKE where you can fish for Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch.
You can fish every day and catch your supper.
