Okay, a quick review. Men vs women, most weight brought in wins. Last time I posted I received lots of great information on Pike fishing, and I can not wait to try this out. Is pike the right choice in this little family fish-off? Or would pan fish be the more likely candidate? What do you guys think? It is the week of July 4th.
A lot of this is going to depend on the lake. For a lake with lots of sunnies, that's what I would go for. Especially if they were big ones. Of course, if you catch two 20 lb. northerns, it would pretty much wipe out your total sunny catch in poundage.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
