Northern Pike fishing on minnows from shore

Date: August 25, 2016
Temperature: 30°C
Water depth: 8-9ft
Location: Holland River, Ontario
Bait used: Minnows

On this day I wanted to go boating but it looked like it was going to rain so I decided not to go far and actually fish from shore just in case it started raining. I decided to try fishing on Holland River with minnows – I caught many small Largemouth Bass here so I thought that big ones have to there as well. Instead of Bass I caught a small Northern Pike. I released it a bit too early, it didn’t recover enough, and did a barrel roll before swimming away. I fished for only an hour before it started raining and about another half hour while it was raining but after the thunderstorm moved in I decided to head home.
