I set out for about an hour in a canoe just before supper time tonight. On Sydenham Lake, Ontario, Canada, there are many rocks cliffs. I made my way over to one and tried for pike. Well second cast landed me a nice one!!! I usually catch them by accident, and they destroy my bass lures, but I bought a new Lucky Strike Red Flash (basically big red & white spoon with beads) and Mr. (or Mrs.) Pike SLAMMED IT!!
Here’s another shot:
Basically I just threw the spoon out, let it sink and before it even hit bottom I was struck!!! It was awesome reeling this one in while in a canoe, and even towed me around a little bit.
Next weekend bass season opens, I have been waiting for what feels like forever…. but alas, time to hook some bass!!
Hope you all had a great weekend on the water!!
