Was at Collingwood Saturday. I measured 8 inches of ice. There was 8 to 10 trucks on the ice, 1 went by us in our tent and the ice dropped and water was coming out the holes.
I had to go home and change my shorts. :o
We were in 32 feet of water and was slow day. only got 5 perch between the 2 of us.

Won't be long before someone goes through the ice. They have to be crazy driving on the ice already.

We were out in a flip over shack at Collingwood Saturday also, probably a little closer to shore than you were as we were in about 25 feet of water.  And one of the trucks drove within 10 feet of my shack and needless to say it was more than a little uncomfortable.  Not sure why some people think they have to test the ice by using their half ton.  Anyways, fishing was slow for us caught 4 perch and 2 walleye between 3 of us.  kept the perch for a snack but the walleye went back home to grow bigger.  10 inches of ice where we were

Me wants Brian's Perchies.   Where I gets dem.   
Fishing is good for your Mind, Body and Soul.
Actually catching a fish or two is a nice by product of a day well spent.

The next time that you don't feel like going into work, don't give your Boss any excuses (Hes heard them all), just say, "I'm going fishing, wanna come".

I am from regina and would like to hurry fishing st Collingwood this weekend, just wondering if anyone that's been out there knows for sure if it's safe to walk out and fish from the boat launch to get to 25 to 30 feet of water. Any information on the ice would be appreciated.

As of last Saturday it was safe to walk out to 30' of water.  There is parking at the boat launch and some guys drove down into the little slough/bay area north of the boat launch and parking on the ice down there.  You should be safe to walk on this weekend and I suspect there will be a few more trucks on the ice at Collingwood even.

Good luck, I don't have much for tips but the smaller PK spoons worked OK for me last weekend.

Any time i use a jigging spoon (mostly BK and buckshot) i typically bait with a chunk of something. If its a minnow, i usually use the front half or 1/3 hooked through the bottom lip to hang vertically. Personally, never had much success hanging them horizontally on the hook or using a full minnow. I also think that the more meat there is for them to chew on,  the less chance they bite the hook.

The buckshot perch pattern spoon with a partial minnow has been my LML go to..... until last year. For whatever reason, I had more success with the live forage flutter lure in the perch pattern, again with a half minnow.

The more I fish, the surer I am of how little I know.

I feel your pain, I've always used either a silver and green Swedish Pimple or else a silver and green Deadly Dick, that colour combination seems to work consistently.  The last half of last season and the one time I've been out this year it hasn't worked well so now I've been digging into my tackle box for some different lures and haven't found the new flavour of the month yet! But definitely echo what zforste1 said about using a partial minnow; I generally only use the head as I find it stays on the best and still leaves enough hook showing for increased chance of hook ups.

OK. Now we're into it.

That silver and green Deadly Dick with a stinger hook is still my favourite for a jaw jacker or dead stick set up. It's just so much fun to tell people what you caught the fish with.

I prefer the Lindy rattlin flyers.   Although they dropped the largest size 😡  I have a few dozen of the big ones to last me  😔
I find when they are hungry and smacking jigging spoons color rarely matters.      But it's always tipped.
And if they don't hit that and won't commit and I'm only fishing 1 hole that comes flying out and down goes a tiny jig and half of a minnow.  If they don't hit that on the fall or after a few seconds as far as I'm concerned nothing would have worked.

I was at Collingwood  on Wednesday fished straight out from the launch in 33ft the ice was 12" . A few people were driving trucks and pulling shacks around. It was my first time there so I played it safe and just walked out. Fished 12-5:30 caught about a dozen perch and afew small walleye.
