Yesterday, I headed out for a day of fishing on the shores of the Toronto Islands in search of some Northern Pike with my friend, and fellow OFN‘er, Ric. We started at Wards Island and worked our way all the way, and through, Centre Island. The weather was nice, a bit cold but great for Pike fishing, however the sun didn’t make an appearance until after 2pm at which point the fish became much more active.
Ric definitely gets the trophy of the day, landing 6 pike to my 1. Not to mention the 36″ he picked up just before we left. Using my new Quantum PT Tour Baitcaster, with a super fast 7.0:1 ratio, I found it was very hard to slow my presentation down as much as Ric (using a 5.0:1 Abu Garcia Ambassador) and I ultimately paid the price in less fish. Reguardless, I learned a lot about my new gear and had a great time.
