Toronto Islands, downtown Toronto, Lake Ontario
foggy and rainy weather
encountered 8 bowfin
3 disliked presentation
1 broke off stalking worm to attack a pike in a territorial battle
1 cut the line
2 owner cicle hooks staightened
1 bowfin successfully landed
used 7ft st croix rod med action / daiwa 1600 ss tournament whisker reel / owner circle hooks/ 6lb mono
i prefer to use power pro 5lb braid but the water clarity was too good....
i ussually do not get my first bowfin until the last week in april so this was a treat.
result of battle royale....
