I've been stopping at this creek for the last little while either on my way to work or coming home (depends what shift I'm on). I've moved a few fish, either had them follow me up or missed them. Yesterday on the way in I decided to stop again and it paid off. On the second cast I had a fish miss the lure almost at the end of my retrieve and it must have moved to the other side of the pool. I moved down the opposite way to try my luck as I've moved fish down there before but no luck and then back down to the same spot again with no luck so I moved down the other direction and it paid off.
Rather than start a new thread I decided to drag this up from the depths.
I'm putting this here to try and get some interest.

That thing is a monster. Here's a couple pics from this summer I'll throw up.
And maybe someone can clarify. I think the below is a pike, but others are saying muskie..
it was caught in a pitch black river (called the Black River)
Not sure if you've seen this, but MNR species map is pretty detailed:
Here's a not-so-small smallie:
Dinner from a stocked lake (don't keep the wild ones)
Now we're just waiting for the salmon to start their trip upriver from Superior. Praying for some rain...
That's awesome. My river is just at the north end of Couchiching on the Green/Black Rivers. So muskie 'could' make it up there.. I've only caught pike though
i am definitely a beginner when it comes to fishing. i havent been in ~10 years
i am looking to go somewhere quiet to fish in the GTA and surrounding areas.
can someone suggest a lake or pond or river where there isnt a lot of people around so i can get back in to the grove of things?
i dont have any equipment yet so any suggestions welcome
Well, depends on where you are in Toronto. I noticed that it's really quiet around Toronto island. If you got yourself a canoe (or rented one on the island) you could probably haul in some decent bass.
does anyone know a good place to get some basic information about stating off. types or rods and waht kind of fish they are geared for, bait, tackle, and so on?
You can definitely shore fish from the Island. Also all along the pier on the land side.
Well I think it depends on how much you want to spend. You can get rod/reel combos for less than $100 or you can easily spend $500+ (which I probably would advise against if you're starting out)
Bait is really personal preference. I prefer crank baits for bass/pike as well as spinners and spoons. Soft baits on hooks work well too. You pretty much just have to find a few baits that you like to use and go from there.
However there are a few pike to be caught out there as well...
Southern shore of Lake O is heating up boys! Got the Lund out on the big lake for the first time, got my Yamaha T8 High thrust kicker installed along with a TrollMaster Pro2.. Scotty 1106's worked awesome as well! Got 8 fish to the boat, 4 kings, 2 lakers and 2 cohos.. nothing giant, but it was great to get out. Simcoe perchin' is next!

How does the troll master work? I've thought about installing one but I only really use the kicker in the fall on Quinte and a bit up in the Timmins area. I may put a power pole or talon on the other side. For my fishing style it'll get more use.
Can't beat a Lund.
Shore fishing? Jacksons point should be holding some good perch right now. Get there early though.
The TrollMaster kit comes with a small electric actuator that you install inside the cowl and attach to the throttle linkage of the kicker.. It's basically a potentiometer... All I do is start the motor (electric start) put it in gear then I can control the throttle from upfront without need another set of controls.. The dial goes from 0-250 (250 being WOT) so you can dial in the perfect trolling speed for pretty much anything.. Should be great for walleyes as well..
And you're right, you can't beat a Lund.. This boat handled that rough water like it was nothing.. Too many people are hung up on hull thickness and not worried about hull design.. Lund killed it with the IPS hull.. I've never been in a boat that gets on plane so fast with so little throttle input...
