Toronto Islands

Recommended Posts

I landed 3 pike today between 10:30 and 11:00. 2 of them were between 26 and 29 inches and fat. Lost 2 more during that time and missed a half dozen others that followed and pecked.

 

Small spinners, especially silver (on a sunny day) were most effective. Water temperature and cabbage seem ideal. Lots of boat traffic in the afternoon didn't help. Surface weeds are starting to fill in and will be a problem for casting and trolling with the sunny and hot forecast for the coming week.

Near Hanlans Point? On the old docks?

Good job yakpiker. A small gaggle of yakfishermen from Yakfisher.net were heading to the islands from Cherry Beach today. Did you hook up with them?

Yep, they arrived early afternoon and I tried to orient them to the area in the rowing channel. One of the guys hooked a 25+ pound carp on ultralight...took 25+ minutes to get it to the yak.

Past Hanlans Point in the rowing channel...the old docks are gone now. I expect the pike will be heading that way during the coming week with the forecast.

Nice Fish!

 

When I saw the docks gone I almost cried.
