Friday 12th January Pike Fishing.

Recommended Posts

Well headed out early this morning. Our plan was to head down to Lake st claire and do some fishing down that way just for a change of scenery. Anyway on our way down we stopped at walley mart and grabbed a couple of new lures. Left there and decided to hit a well known bait and tackle store. Man i could have spent half the day in there. I swear he had everything and both the guys working there were great. Well anyway i finally after three different locations found my bug chug.....lol....I also brought myself a brandnew LED allure lure. Has anyone else tryed these out? They are pretty dern cool. No batteries the light has a thousand hrs of life, And they really do look cool in the water.

 

So anyway after about an hr in there we were told about a real hotspot for pike & they were not kiddin. So we headed on down and on the way got a blooming flat tire. So got that fixed had a sarnie and headed down to the water. Now this was my 1st time down here new terain and it was absolutley beautiful. There were allready about five people down there fishing. Ohhh and as we left the van we saw three guys going back to there cars with what looking like a couple of pike in a plastic bag.....So anyway we get down there and find this.

What a total mess. So untangled it all and ended up with all these....

I had a couple of hits with in the space of like 20 minutes and missed both....Grrrrrr...There were some people a little ways down from us that were pulling in one perch after the other.

 

 

I think you can just make them out on the rocks.

Anyway we decided to move further down river when we saw a guy pull in this little beauty.

Which sadley was also taken home....But the hook was buried pretty deep and it was bleeding. The guy who caught this pike was actually going to grab it by the inside of its mouth. I about had kittens and hollared at him NOOO!!! He looked at me like i was crazy.....lol

 

So anyway on our merry way......Steve decided to try the new bug chug i had brought and sure enough he got a hit on it. Was a nice pike too just a shame he never landed it. *smirks*

 

We were in this erea for about five hrs today and i saw seven pike in total pulled out of this body of water. Four of which i saw taken away in bags.

 

For a friday it was pretty busy down there so i am thinking that there is probably allready alot of presure on the fishing here which is why i am not revealing the location.Its a shame that that many pike were taken and thats only what i saw with my own eyes in those few hrs Could have been more.

 

But in all even though i never landed a pike today i got to see some beautiful new scenery it was a nice mild day and for sure beats working. So Today was just a awesome day to be out by the water.

 

This is a very short video clip of the pike that steve never managed to land and then me just blah blah blahing!!!!

I can just imagine Jeremy. Was talking to a couple of local guys down there said they pulled in a 4.2lb smallie last yr.

 

Like i allready said it was a friday and quite a few people down there. I thought it may be quieter being that is was a working day for most.....WRONG!!!.... :glare:

Good effort Tracy. Ya fell pretty short of LSC, but ya found some fishable water. That's a decent spot, but it see's a ton of daily pressure. You have some better pike spots closer to home.

 

Glad to see you're still getting out. We have some crappy weather coming at us now, so we'll see what that does to us for options. Hopefully it opens more up.

Yeah i know Markus i was down at one of our local spot this morning 1st thing. Took the boat down but it was just raining so hard decided to fish from shore for little over an hr instead. No hits today but ohh well!!! I was sodden to the skin with a waterproof jacket on...well felt like it anyway.........I think i would have rather it had snowed than this cold wet misserable stuff.....lol

 

Will see how the weather fairs up this week. If the water does stay open will head down again one day through the week......As for getting out the only thing that would stop me would be a hurricane. :D:D:Gonefishing:

Said the roads from there were like a icerink. Its not doing anything here and i see no ice out front on the roads. & of course it had to stop blooing raining didn't it...grrrrrr!!
