Now is a great time to target pike right in and around the thickest weedbeds. Most aquatic vegetaton is now in it’s summer growth and if you locate good size weedbeds in 5-12′ of water, you will probably find feeding pike. Use www.luckystrikebaitworks.com , spoons early and late in the day around the weeds and fish spinnerbaits and Rapala crankbaits tight to the weeds and right over them throughout the middle of the day.
Dave Neil was out testing the new 2010 Rapala SHIFT series rods over the weekend and tagged into this trophy pike that measured-out at just under 44â€ in length and is one of the largest pike Dave has seen in Southern Ontario (Parry Sound Area).The fish was suspended off a shoal in about 25â€™ of water when it charged the new Storm Kick â€˜n Stick 16.This lure has a great action for large Pike and Musky.Make sure to look for it in stores soon.
On our last day of filming from www.sundslodge.com, BC several trophy Chinook Salmon were landed by guests at the lodge. I had a chance to compliment the exciting Halibut footage we shot the day before by doing a segment trolling with a flasher/anchovie combination using the new Rapala RSC Mooching Rod and Center Pin reel combination and landed a nice 17 lb. Chinook. The largest fish was weighed-in by Tony Spencer and weighed over 30 lb.! If you enjoy 5-star service, meals and accommodations combined with world-class BC coastal fishing for trophy Salmon, Halibut and a variety of other bottom fish, you should check-out Sund’s Lodge.
This week, join Italo and his wife Barbara as they take you to www.avalons.net, Isle of Youth fishing resort and enjoy the mixed saltwater fishing action for trophy snapper, barracuda, tarpon and jack trevally. You’ll see awesome action and get lots of good saltwater fishing tips.
Enjoying great weather, Barb & I, our guide Geoff & Scott Sund shot a dynamic Halibut show jigging 200-300′ depths with the Williamson vertical jigging spoons in the 5-7 oz. size, & also using traditional Halibut jigs/plastic squid lures. We travelled about 7-miles from www.sundslodge.com, and found relatively calm waters and ended up hooking many Halibut to complete our trophy TV show. Many of the guests also limited-out on Halibut to compliment their Chinook Salmon catches. Make sure to check the new series when it airs on TSN for this exciting and educational program.
