Nice catches. There's a project that's happening on the waterfront where they are submerging something like a thousand large tree root systems to create bait and other fish habitat. Probably going to be an even better fishery over the next few years. For pike anyway.

It's a project a friend of mine is working on right now. At the moment he's uprooting the trees. I'll ask him more info about it and post when I know.

Talked to my friend. He said it's called the Toronto harbourfront watershed project. Looked it up later and really couldnt find much posted by the city about it. His low down is that he's uprooting 1800 large trees and submerging them in torontos waterfront.

All I could find somewhat related. Sorry I dont have more info.

Thanks a lot. Really appreciate you providing this info. It's very good news for all urban fishermen and the step in the right direction!

While I, like most of us, am waiting for the safe ice, I was able to get out open water fishing one more time yesterday and find a spot in one of the marinas.

Pike was cooperating and I ended up going 2 out of 5 in about 3 hour time span (in the pm).

Jerkbaits were completely ignored this time but 5.5" swammer fished slowly along the bottom was the ticket.
