Learn to Fish Private Ponds


Learn to fish in a Private Ponds loaded with Largemouth Bass!


This is our best venue for learning how to fish, as it is a completely controlled environment. These small ponds can be fished in most weather conditions and are very clear, which allows you to see your lures in action and actually seeing fish strike your bait!

A short walk or golf cart ride across the road from Long Point Eco Adventures is Burning Kiln Winery where these private ponds are located. The walk to the pond is a joy in it’s self because the pond is hidden on Burning Kiln’s Southern Ontario vineyard.


During the “Learn to Fish” lesson our Guides teach the following:

  • choosing the correct reel and rod
  • how to tie proper knots
  • different techniques for rigging fishing weights
  • how to cast and retrieve techniques
  • choice of baits, lure actions and colours

  • Setting the hook in a fish and line tension
  • Safely handling the fish and removing the hook
