Did you know that Ontario has the best Northern Pike fishing on the continent? With exceptional fisheries located across the province, these prehistoric monsters are lurking in countless lakes and rivers. And once they start striking, you’re in for a ferocious battle!
Pike, after all, have changed very little in the past 50 million years. With their sharp teeth and long serpentine bodies, these bad girls look and fight like evolutionary throwbacks. And trust me, it’s the females you’ll be going for; They’re the much larger of the species.
With a diet that can include fish, frogs, small rodents, muskrat and even young waterfowl, Pike are true predators. Get one on your line and you’ll know why they’re at the top of the food chain. Going after Pike definitely puts the sport in sport fishing. And unlike most parts of the country, where catching monster Pike requires an extended trip to the Northern regions, Ontario’s monsters can be found in all areas of the province, north to south.
For a true fishing treat, look to Ontario’s Pike. You don’t have to drive far to find adventure. In fact, it’s as close as GoFishinOntario.com.
