Fishing fun.
« on: May 12, 2010, 02:09 AM »
Hi everyone,

On May 9th I went shore fishing for an hour and a half just to say I went on opening weekend,  it sure felt good. 8)

My mom and a friend came with me just to see how the fishing was like.
I was the only one fishing, but my friend helped me net the fish and mom took the photos.

It was a dark and windy day, but the fish were still cooperative.

On my very first cast I had a tap so I pitched the lure to the same spot, gave the reel a turn, BANG, fish on! :)

A fair fight ensued despite the water being quite cold and I land my first fish of the open water season, a long and lean 6.5lb pike.

As I was removing the fish from the net, it grabbed my pointer finger and slashed the top of it from the nail to the knuckle. :unsure:
It is still stiff and sore today.
I have heard if you are not bleeding, you are not pike fishing, I guess I proved that theory,lol ::)

Here is the rest of the action.

6lbs


5.5lbs


5lbs


4lbs


This was the last fish I caught before we left, and the big fish of the day at 7lbs. :)


I think their aggression was due to the approaching storm plus they looked to be very hungry from the spawn.

Most of the fish were really gaunt and sunken in around the stomach area and everyone of them had cuts, holes and scratches all up and down their bodies plus split fins.
The spawn must have been a rough one for them.

Out of the 3 fish I kept one was totally empty, one had a minnow and a few leeches in it and the third had mostly digested pike that would have been 9" long.

All in all it was a fun hour and a half for me, with lots of action and I am happy with my results this early in the season.

I hope everyone also had a good start to their season. :)

Thanks maw31, engineman and mongosmash. :)

Yeah, it was a bit chilly that day with a strong wind and below seasonal temps.

On this May long weekend my uncle and I were able to do some fishing on Victoria Day for a few hours in the afternoon.

We fished from 5:00pm - until 7:15 pm.

It was a cool and windy afternoon with a mostly cloudy sky and brisk North wind, not the best of fishing conditions but, we tried it
anyway.

The action was fairly slow up until the last hour, then we both got a few nibbles and finally we found a few fish.

The end result, 3 pike.


They were 2, 3 and 3.5 lbs.

They were caught with Len Thompson spoons.

Hi all,

On May 26th my uncle and I returned to Stony Lake for an evening of fish from 6:15pm - 9:00pm.

The evening started off really windy and cool, but got a bit better as the evening worn on.

The fish still seem to be a bit negative, but in the end we got the same results as last time 3 pike, 1 for my uncle and 2 for me. :)


The fish were very full of scuds / freshwater shrimp.

I now see why they were slow to bite and not very hungry.

Spoons are a proven shorefishing lure for us and again that what the pike hit on.

Hi all,

After a week and a half of rain my uncle and I decided to try our luck on one of the only clear days we have had so far  - June 2nd.

We went fishing that evening from 5:30pm to 9:00pm.

It was a mostly sunny evening with calm waters.

We decided to try Stony lake again but found our usual spot had a number of anglers already fishing off shore and a few boats out too.

We tried for an hour in that area but, no one was catching anything so we moved on.

The mosquitoes were getting pretty bad, but we wanted some fish, so out came the bug spray and we stuck with it.

It was another hour before I got the first fish of the evening, a feisty pike.  My uncle landed one a few minutes later.

The action then slowed for about an hour before we left and then the fish start to turn on.

In the end we managed 6 not bad pike, 3 for me and 3 for my uncle. :)


I caught the big one of the night, a chunky 8.8 lb. pike.



The pike hit on spoons, double tail grubs and Storm Wildeye swimbaits.

All in all it was a good evening of fishing. 8)

Hi Dear Water Wolf,

Did you go fishing recently?
How about your results?
In my opinion, fishing is no much fun, Because most of times I catch onthing.
Maybe I am young, there is a lot to learn, and patience is most important, right?
Thanks.

Thanks Skidda, engineman and Young Catcher. :)

Hi Young Catcher and welcome to the Sask. portion of my fishfinder.

I like to catch any fish that's biting that day but, yeah I do enjoy fishing for pike.

No, I haven't been fishing since early June but hope to sometime soon.

In fishing patience is quite important, but there are also things you can do to up your chances of connecting
with the fish, like choosing the right lure or bait for the right time, the right rod and reel, the right line, location and even the weather affect the fish.

Feel free to ask questions here on my fishfinder, that's how we all learn.

Don't feel bad about the fishless days, we all have them, sometimes more than we would like,lol. ::)
The days that you really get into them will make up for those poor days.

So, good luck on your next fishing adventure, stick with it, and most of all have fun.
To me that's what fishing is all about. 8)
