Ontario has an abundance of clean and accessible lakes for your family to explore. Our family loves to get outside and will take any excuse to get out and take it all in. Fishing is a family favourite. My husband fishes in a couple of tournaments which is inevitably followed by a chorus of “But Moooooom, I want to fish in a tournament just like Daddy!” Well kids, you’re in luck. There is a perfect fishing tournament just for the little ones Continue reading “Fishing Fun for the Little Ones in Beautiful Trent Lakes”
