0 for 4....

Well I got some pike fishing in today. Absolutely gorgeous, although a bit too windy for my liking.

I was 0 for 4 on pike hits, missing 3 completely and breaking off the 4th at the nail knot connection.

I did however manage to land a few largemouth, and had an enormous carp on for about half a minute.

The warmup for Ontario continues.....

Mark, you did better than I did with the pike. I hear ya about the wind. I was fishing from shore the last couple nights and the wind was harsh off the cold water. I did catch a few small bass though, so it was worth it. Are you going to get out this weekend? Should be awesome . I'll probably try for carp tomorrow and pike on Sunday.

What did you get the carp on? C'mon, let's hear the story!

I always carry a few rods with me on the boat rigged for different species that I might encounter. Today I had the 10 and 9 weights loaded up for pike, and had the 7 with me in case I came across any bass. As luck would have it, a pair of carp were rooting around and the 7 weight had a brown wooly bugger on it. First cast, two strips in front of the lead fish, and it took just like it was supposed to.

My guess was about 15 pounds, and the second fish (one I didn't hook) was even bigger, perhaps 18 pounds. It was fun while it lasted.

Anne wants to go out on the boat Sunday, so that probably means hitting the local perch and crappie pond so that she can have a few fish stretch her flyline. It's supposed to be in the low 70s here this weekend.
