Me and 2 buddies went out for pike Friday March 27th, 2015, got there for 6:45am. Weather was overcast, cold and windy. Set up in 6 FOW. Set up some rods and Tip-Ups. One of my friends 3rd time ice fishing you could tell by his insane reaction. (***Warning : Mild Profanity in Videos)
Got the first one of the day at 9am on a live emerald shiner using tip-up.
9.6 Lbs (released)
After I released this nice fish I was playing around with the perch on ultra light rod and 2lb line using a small orange/yellow buckshot (no leader) when I hooked into another nice Northern.
6.5 Lbs (released)
As soon as I managed to get the fish back in the whole my buddy sets the hook on a monster. Again playing around with the perch using a size 6 hook rigged with a pinhead minnow with thin line. After a long fight...
13.7 Lbs Monster (released)
Then it was slow for a while catching perch all dinks until my buddy's rod goes off outside and he lands a nice Bass again using a live medium sized emerald shiner.
4.5 Lb Largemouth (released)
At about 5pm when we where about to start packing up I managed to hook into another pike again using the same perch setup as before.
8.6 Lbs (released)
All in All it was a Phenomenal Last Trip of the Hardwater Season for me on the Beautiful Lake Simcoe.
