After a couple weeks of pan fish and bass fishin', I thought it was time that Ol' JustNorth got out and try his hand at a little pike fishing.

This past Sunday, with a little encouragement, I talked my wife into joining me. Now you have to understand that my wife's, God love her, idea of a fishing trip is a sunny day, no wind, her knitting needles, a spool of yarn, and site seeing lake homes. Well, what the heck, I have a boat partner. blush smiley)

The day started out well with some storm clouds in the distance and some nice sunshine overhead. The pike weren't exactly in a positive mode but after trying a few lure variations and downsizing from large spoons, we hooked into a couple of fish.

After a few hours, the weather started turning and my experience told me it was time to let her off at the dock. Five minutes later - here comes the rain.

Now a little thunder didn't prohibit me from returning to the troll. Now, it is a well known fact among us old pikers that right before a rain can be a high percentage time to catch pike. Well, here I was - in a torrential downpour and I couldn't go fifty yards without hooking into another pike! Eight pike in thirty minutes. Now that it is what I call fun!

Yep, seen the storm effect. On our lake, it's true for 'eyes too. I have caught more fish as a storm comes in then any other time. Last year, I was out going for 'eyes and not having much luck. A storm was brewing to the west. About 20 minutes before the storm hit, I started catching fish like crazy. Caught about 15 in 20 minutes. All 'eyes. Some nice.

The trick is how long to stay on the lake. A couple of times, I stayed out to the point where I had to beat it to the nearest shore and wait it out. Didn't want to get zapped by lightening.

Be Safe Out There!

I hear you, Webdude.

I was listening to the thunder and waiting for the lightning.

I had my 16' Lund Pro Pike and finally took cover under a culvert that went between two lakes. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

That's fishing blush smiley)
