When you’re on holiday and someone asks you to get up at 7am to go spend your day sitting on a frozen sheet of ice waiting for a walleye to nibble on your bait, what’s your first reaction?
For many of you, I imagine it’s “thanks, but no thanks!”
However, as the mom of one excited 8-year-old boy, when the opportunity to ice fish in Laval presented itself, “no” was not an option. So, there we were, bundled up against the cold as we made our way over to the host hut at Parc de la Rivière-des-Mille-Îles to grab our gear for ice fishing in Laval.
As we walked into the hut, we were welcomed by our friendly guide for the day. She immediately made my son and I feel right at home, and got us all the gear we would need: poles, hooks, bait, and more. With our gear in hand, we were back out the door, and heading down the trail towards the ice.
