Im thinking monday looks like the best day to me, some clouds and potential rain in the evening should also keep the crowds at bay.

I'll probably go on Monday too, to try for some Carp. I have some new gear and baits I want to try out, including a wacky interline rod from Japan.

Oh ya I'm thinking about bringing my fly rod. Possibly only my fly rod even. What time are you going? maybe I'll bring my spinning gear and join you for carp or just try the fly rod. I'll have to see I I can find some tiny flies and little shrimp patterns.

I'll be over there pretty much all day, I usually take an early-ish ferry around 8am to dodge the line ups.

Picked up some carp files from BPS so if I cant find the pike maybe I can find some carp on the fly.

Got over this evening for a few hours. Got one on a 5 of Diamonds and had a few strikes. Fishing was slow due to the number of boats going through. There were even people in jet skis flying through the channels. It may be down to weekday evenings soon...

Sounds like I'm gonna have to go in to work extra early to get some time in on the weekdays, damn.

Not sure what time I'm. Gonna wake up but hoping to hit the islands fairly early, if I can't get up early I'll probably be there by 2pm. If anyone wants to hook up pm me and I'll give you my cell #

Had to do some work this morning so I couldn't get out early, will try to be on the islands this afternoon.

Didn't end up at the Toronto Island on the weekend, from what I heard it was just a mad house out there. There were 2 hour long waits just to board the ferry! Ended up at High Park with my girlfriend and my fly rod slinging bugs for panfish, probably caught about 5-8 little guys but it was still fun and I managed to feed my addiction.

I was there on friday. Didnt land anything. Had both a bowfin and carp on, but lost them both.
