It’s time to recognize that ice fishing is damn excellent, and this weekend offers as great a time as any to post up in a hut to hover your rod over a hole.

Not only will balmy temperatures make for a more pleasant than usual time to sit around without moving for hours, but many Ontario parks are offering the opportunity to fish licence-free from Saturday, February 18 through Monday, February 20. 

Alas, the answer to ‘What are we doing for Family Day?’

Here are 25 places in Ontario you can go ice fishing for free this long weekend:
