Another Day's Ice Fishing

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, the report is picture shy today but had one of my better trips out on the ice today. Fished a lake off of Lake Ontario with my buddy GoneFishin from sun up until 4ish today. Managed one pike right off the hop then got only a few strikes but made a move to some perch water just after 11am.

 

Here's the Pike, a little guy but a start. This was my 3rd trip out...bout time I got something with teeth :P

Once we moved we fished live minnows off of bottom, pretty self explanatory. Here are my 2 biggest of the day, a both just barely under 12" with a pinched tail once thawed out and home.

Until next weekend thanks for viewing, in total I probably managed about 8 or so perch, many in the 7-9 inch range with 1 dinker. Rick managed a half dozen perch towards the end, just didn't see the size today. Bite was tough.

 

Tightlines,

MTBF :)

Ice is 9.5" thick at our furthest spot...I'm not a early season guy, only been out 3 times. Earliest was around the same ice thickness.

I dont think i have ever got on the ice before sun up like your pic with the Pike...good job... i always plan to but then i forget the minnows/wallet/etc....

 

pick up smokes from the tackle shop...get chatting...etc...etc...

 

You have inspired me to try and accomplish that feat this season!

      Ok, so the only thing missing is the kitchen sink LOL. My son and I had another wonderful weekend, did some fishing, exploring, and harvested some beaked hazelnuts. My CFMOTO is a year old now and I have to say I am super impressed, some of the trails we explored this weekend were through some pretty rough therein and this thing just eats it up. The power steering sure is a blessing for these old arms! We actually managed to wind our way through some very old logging trails, some place

    • 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
