Mike Di Donato sent us this trophy pike he landed along with 15-others fishing in Lake Ontario. Many anglers don’t realize that most bays and shallow-water areas that have some new weed-growth, like marina basins and mouth of streams and rivers flowing into Lake Ontario are ideal areas to catch good-size pike early in the season.
Mike caught his fish using a spoon and working off the shorelines and structure breaks.
Mike and his oldest daughter Molly who is 4’ years old loves fishing and watch fishing shows together on Saturday mornings, when we aren’t fishing. She loves the “fisher girl” spots on the Canadian Sportfishing series.
