*** Activity exclusively reserved for Université Laval students***

Ice fishing is an age-old fishing technique taught to the French settlers by the Indigenous people. Today it is an established tradition. Ice fishing lasts only a few weeks during winter when the ice is thick enough to cross safely and erect huts on it. These cabins, which are almost like little cottages, provide shelter from adverse weather. Each one is heated (by burning wood), lit, and equipped with at least one electrical outlet and has tables, chairs, benches, and more. Depending on their size, they can accommodate from 6 to 15 people.

Fishing
Atlantic tomcod (commonly known as Tommy Cod) is a white-fleshed fish 15 to 30 cm in length commonly found in the cold waters of eastern North America.Tomcod fishing is very simple. Just lower your baited line into the river and wait for the fish to take the bait. Once you’ve caught a fish, reel it in without leaving the comfort of the hut. If you wish to spice up the day, cook your fish right on the site over the wood stoves.To do so, you must bring all the necessary equipment. If you want to cook the caught fish, you can bring your pans, ustensils and everything you need to prepare it on the stove of your shack.

The location
The activity will take place in Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade, where an entire village of more than 500 huts are put up each year on the Sainte-Anne River. There is a skating rink on the river. Bring you own skates!
