Pike fishing with the little guy

Recommended Posts

I took my son out for a little pike fishing this weekend. Loaded up the 12' tinny headed for Robson Lake. It's a small lake northeast of Durham on the Bruce pen.

 

On the trip up I'm explaining what a pike is and his eyes keep growing bigger. I think it was in fear, not anticipation. :rolleyes: LOL.

 

We get out there and starting throwing the same as I was catching with up in Parry Sound ... nothing. So, I put on a big sucker minnow under a bobber for him. Well we didn't have to wait for long and the bobber went down with enthusiasm. A couple reminders to keep his rod up and he brought in his 1st pike. I wasn't bad at about 20". I'm kicking myself for not getting a picture. He had another one on a couple minutes later but lost it. When he brought the minnow in (what was left of it anyways) he piped up in a loud voice "what happened to him?!". So,"remember those teeth" I told you about.

 

Soon after some gloomy clouds started coming in so I called it a day. But he had a couple good stories for his Mom and sister about the strong Pike and the mushed up minnow.

Tnx, he is a little bass fishing machine. He is still not old enough that it gets boring when the fishing is slow though. My daughter used to fish with me a fair bit, but she doesn't like it much anymore.

    • carp fishing kawartha lakes/London area.

      Hello, thanks for letting me join. I’m from England but I’m coming out to Canada, Ontario for 2 weeks in September. It’s not a fishing holiday but some fishing will definitely be happening. Has anyone got any advice on areas I should visit to try and catch a better carp as when I was out before caught lots of smaller ones so wanted to try and get one over 20lb! Also advice on what licences I need would be great. we are staying a few days in London, then travelling to the kawartha lakes area

    • Fishing the Yukon June 2019

      We have been to the Yukon several times but Alaska was new. My wife Leslie, hurt her back on an ATV ride in to a remote lake so that stopped fishing for about a week. We only fished together 2 days of the nine days in the Yukon. She insisted I do an overnighter alone so I got an extra two days in. Climate change is messing things up...they only had four inches of snow all winter and most of that was in April. One lake was so low that most of the pike habitat was dry

    • Kingston area eastern Lake Ontario salmon/trout fishing

      I used to run 27' boat out of Whitby trolling for Lake Ontario salmon and rainbow trout each summer, and I have been missing it. I moved just north of Kingston a dozen years ago and have concentrated on back lakes bass since then. When I was in Whitby, I could tell you exactly what week the salmon would appear, in what locations and at what depth the best fishing would be. Seldom got skunked if the fish were around. I am thinking of upgrading my 14' tin boat to something that could han

    • New toy, for when I am not fishing *NF*

      So a lot has happened in the past 6 years for me and now here I am.  By that I mean a newer relationship and new hobbies too.  Yes I still fish as often as I can (I just don't share my findings now) but my old passion to ride is back.  Today I finally got my own 'bike'. It's a 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 with less than 1600KM on it and it's mint AND has the upgraded Hindel exhaust!  Time to ride to my spots
