TORONTO PIKE REPORT - Nice surprise for lunch

Recommended Posts

So I head out for a very, very late day lunch (aka- fishing) :Gonefishing:

 

Figured the storm might trigger some feeding.

 

I was also experimenting with a new technique.

I knew the pike were deep so I went to the deepest part of somewhere and experimented, ever so secretly. :rolleyes:

 

Fishing around the ice was a hassle

Then the snow started, it was pretty

Then it rhymed with pretty but not as nice

Just as I was about to leave and sit in traffic for 5 hours...... :wallbash:

 

There was a 10min break on the blizzard. Yay :clapping:

 

I got a hit

A nice hit

lots of weight

She was fat and made the top 10 Toronto pike distinction :clapping:

Now, in this particular spot, (the Mctrio R.I.P will lament) it is a challenge to land a fish with with help.

Alone it's hell. :wallbash:<_<

 

Luckily, I secured it's landing by engorging a treble into my index finger, thereby creating extra leverage.

Got her up, and a crap picture:

I'm in pain (clearly) and you can see the bloody finger

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Fishings stupid.

 

Now go shovel.

 

and shovel again. :wallbash:

Great fish but can you please try to be just a little more careful? There seems to be a very much higher incidence of self mutilation while fishing this year than in years past.

 

Glad you were able to get out for a few casts though. And that IS a solid pike. Thanks for sharing.

Just thinking aboot a treble in a finger in freezing weather makes the ol' brown eye pucker so's you couldn't drive a straight pin in it with a sledgehammer!!!! :blink:

Ohhhhhh, I sympathize with the treble to the finger, that smarts. Don't eat red snow :lol:

 

That's a very respectable pike there, very nice :thumbsup_anim:

Great report Grant!!! Yet another pike war wound! I still have a scar from one I got over a year ago...mind you at least mine was from the fish itself instead of my own lure...LOL. It's great seeing more soft water reports....all these ice reports, although great, were starting to depress me....haha.

Worth every drop of blood I say. Nothing makes being snowed in easier to handle then knowing you got a nice fish before it hit.

A pre- blizzard downtown pike with blood.

That's pretty hardcore. :clapping:

 

The pike are chunky down there this time of year.

Nice fish and thanks for laugh.
