it all started out on a hot friday afternoon with a phone call from my fishing partner and he had a hot tip the fish were jumping in the boat so i said i'd meet him at his place around 6 am ..
well he was so very much right it did't take long to find them but the problem was sticking with them as they were on the move with the small minows so we did get a few smaller ones then this one hit thought it was a northern pike to begin with then we got to see it .. it was so very much worth the fight to bringing in this nice 3 1/2 pounder ..
then a little while later another hard hit all i could see was a big pike till i got it a little closer to the boat then i could see a pike holding on to my 2 pound bass 3/4 of the way down it's mouth almost like it was't going to let go till it seen the boat then it was gone (sorry no pic's of that)..never to be seen agian or till next trip..
We were useing green and black buzz baits in 1-15 feet of water.. And also bright orange 7" jointed rapalas..
Wow that's one of my favorite lakes in that area. That lake has shown me nice northern, bass, and walleye. The past few years it was really flooded and even the shore fishing was FABULOUS. I'll leave a report next time I'm up.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
