Pike and walleye opener in Ontario


Haven't blogged to much about my trips lately, been too busy fishing and entertaining my in laws that came to visit for a week. Got the boat launched in time for the opener.

The pike haven't showed up at my usual hot spots in Zone 20, the wind and waves have kept us mainly in the Raisin River. I've managed a few small pike and a nice walleye in the 3.5 lb range. Incidentally, we've also managed about 100 bass, both largemouth and smallmouth, in 3 outings, many over 3 lbs. I guess that will happen whenever you're targeting pike early in May.

Best producing lure for me so far this season is a floating Rapala J-9.
