Orginial Beaver Serial # 2
Editor's Notes: Outdoor Writer Dale Hainer has had many fly-in fishing adventures by bushplane into the far-reaching corners of Northern Ontario. Read Dale's story about his visit to the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, a museum in Sault Ste. Marie-Algoma that is dedicated to the history and preservation of these aircrafts and the pilots who fly them.

The author's youngest son Jake holds a nice walleye caught using a tip up.
Tip ups rank as one of the most productive ways to target winter walleye across Algoma Country. It's hard to beat the feeling when something at the end of a fishing line makes its presence known. A tug on the end of the line is great, but this sensation isn't the only way to make the most of ice fishing. The time honored tip up is another excellent way to target a wealth of fish species including trout, walleye, pike and burbot. A tip up doesn't reward anglers with a sharp rap they can feel, but the colorful flag that pops up when a bite occurs is just as satisfying. The simple words "flag up" are enough to warm the…

Well, with the MNR's Fish ON-Line interactive map, it's easy to find out.   The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) first launched the Fish ON-Line tool in 2011.
