Pike Opener On the Kayak

Finally pike opener is upon us so Kory and decided to hit a local inland lake with the kayaks. To be honest it was a slow day and after talking to one of the locals we were informed because of the hard winter there was a little bit of a kill this year on this lake. To add insult to the wound they also told us they keeping everything they caught. Now on a 6 acre lake doesn’t take long to desecrate the population on a small lake like that. This lake in the past usually we are lucky to see 1 or 2 other boats on it but today 8.

Enough of my rant Kory and I both ended up with a couple bass each released back to the lake and Kory had one follow up from a pike about 30 inches but he just wouldn’t take



Well here is a video of me catch a large mouth on my pike fly off the kayak

Skunk Finally out of the Kayak

This has to been one of the toughest springs in  years, thought I get out and get some good spring fishing but that went south fast in April. Two weekends with weddings Easter weekend taking up the 3rd then the 4th weekend the river to high as shown in the picture below


Late Sunday afternoon after just geting back from Niagara Falls Kory said "dad let get the Kayaks out see if we can hit some steelies being its the opening week. Who was I to argue so we loaded up the boats hit a local stream.
To be honest it was a slow day fishing but finally I pulled a nice walleye out of the river. Being out of season in Ontario I had to release it back to the river but was so cool to get my 1st fish fishing out of a Kayak. 


Here is a small video of me catching my 1st fish out of my Kayak. I could have edited it more, specially when I dropped my rod into the river but hey, want to keep it real. Watch the video of my epic 1st fish from a kayak
