Fishing for Muskie, Pike and Bass right in Downtown Ottawa

Yahoo posted an interesting video about fishing right in Downtown Ottawa. Don’t laugh. Wait till you see what one of the guys in the video caught.

I used to love to go fishing. Also enjoyed driving up to Ottawa.

On more than one trip to Ottawa,  I saw people fishing along rivers as we drove past on the highway.

It never occurred to me that one could catch really decent sized fish, by fishing near the Parliament Buildings in Downtown Ottawa.

In the Yahoo posted video, the guy catches either a huge Pike or a Muskie, along with a smaller Pike and a small Bass. Really surprising video. Wish that I had known this before.
