Hi Guys

I got my first catch, after 6 months since the fishing bug bit me, and it was a good one. This happy addiction hooked me while I was watching a saturday morning fishing show in a hotel room of London.

I found this forum very encouraging and informative when I was in India for a short trip and it kept me persisted however i could not try it in india neither could i hook up with fellow members. The first thing I bought, coming back to Canada was a Shimano rod reel combo from walmart. I tried a dozen times going to lakes and rivers here in toronto but no luck coz I had no experience and know how.

Yesterday I went to a lake with my buddy and got lost our way to it :D, Thanks to google maps for giving us wrong directions. After calling the campground a couple of times we reached there about 3:20 PM.

Within 5 minutes of first cast, This beauty gulped our minnow and took off. while reeling in, it felt like it is gone coz it was running towards me, another five minutes and it was on our pontoon. She was a toothy fish and hard to handle for a novice like me, Minutes later a smaller version of same species was caught.

Both fish were released after a quick photo session.

It was a beautiful day on the lake with 20 Degrees in October (Not very common in ontario). We enjoyed our drinks with lot of Punjabi style BBQ chicken right on the boat.

Thanks

Bhallae bhallae Panjabiyar,
well done for your first fish which is a PIKE. These are predatory fish. Keep up the good work.

First catch and that too a Pike.
Great catch.
True, you have to handle the toothy fish with care. Just imagine handling a Barracuda with those scary looking big set of teeth. You will get used to the teeth.
But tell me, why you are holding that fish with a rag. Slimy customer?

Thanks for the comments guys, She was slimy so thought using a wet cloth will keep her from slipping and hurting herself. I will try to make a couple of fishing trips for muskies before all the water turn into ice here.
