  1. Went down to fifty point today to take advantage of the weather since it’s a few minutes from me. Brought gear for perch pike and trout but it was the pike that were cooperative. Was only out for about an hour and a half when I caught a nice 30 inch female, very healthy looking. Probably about the 8-10 lb range, she ate a rapala bx swimmer but boy was it deep, the whole lure was down her throat. I didn’t have any jaw spreaders which would’ve cut the time and effort down, but after about five minutes I got the lure out. She was bleeding but she did manage to swim away pretty strong. Pike fishing really is underrated just before freeze up and is probably the best chance to get your biggest during the soft water season, so take advantage.
  2. I agree with a few of the suggestions here, just thought I'd chime in with my experience as I fish topwaters for pike and bass a lot. I find louder, noisier, brighter baits to be the best. If you want topwaters for pike I would start with these four baits: Zara spook in the 5inch range (make sure it rattles loud, I have one without rattles and I've definitely caught fewer pike on it), popper/chugger like a storm chug bug, a buzz bait and a frog (again the larger the better) This should have you covered for different situations and different moods, use the buzzbait and frog around lillies and reeds, the spook and popper are good for more open water applications hope this helps, good luck
  3. 18 inches would put it above 2-3lbs, that looks closer to a 4lber, great catch!!!
  4. Try stinger hooks if you keep missing, it'll keep your confidence up in the bait
  5. Topwaters, crankbaits and goby imitations are best on lake O for me
  6. Hey, Im not sure how many other ppl use salmo baits but I love em, problem is I don't know where to find any. Anyone know of a local store who stocks them at all? I know they used to have a website but looks like it's not operational anymore. Any help appreciated
  7. Canadian record is apparently 4.31 lbs, looks like record class fish swimming there
  8. These are all great, some of you have inspired me to add a few to my list....I love portaging so a new canoe route is in the works, plus my neices and nephew will definitely get some more special fishing time with their uncle. Also tying my own jigs is something that has really caught my attention, I would love to catch a trout on a jig I tied with my own hands, so that's going to be added for sure
  9. Just curious if anyone has any resolutions for this upcoming fishing year. I've got a few: 1. My first laker 2. Pike over 40" 3. Muskie over 45" 4. Smallmouth/largemouth over 6lbs 5. Walleye over 10lbs Reaching big here but hey, that's probably why my resolutions are the same every year....anyone else?
  10. A floating jig can be fished on a three way, but any other conventional jig will just give you twice the opportunity to get snagged
  11. Very very nice, just curious, how long does this take start to finish?
  12. Merry Christmas, how about if you were lucky enough to get some new gear this year, take a pic and show us what you got
  13. I found an abandoned net once, a rubber one which had holes in it from a small tear, two zip ties later and I've had it problem free for 5 years, nice strong steel shaft too....I don't understand why ppl leave these easily repairable items as garbage, especially some higher quality stuff
  14. Nice catch, I'm jealous I didn't get any, gotta put more work in
