How much is a launch pass at the public launch in Barrie?
Is there a bait shop nearby where I can buy minnows?


September 26, 2017

Hello Niel,

We just list the fishing derby so if you need more info please contact them directly.

There is a public boat launch in Barrie on Lake Shore Drive and Tiffin Street. I believe it is still free to launch.
The closest Bait and Tackle Shop that sells minnows to that boat launch is The Bait Bucket

Tight lines and Good Luck!
