Last season.. first two weeks of opener.. I was catching smallmouth AND pike on spinner baits.. tandem willow blades.. this year.. nothing.. the rapalas have been doin all the work as witnessed below (today..after an hour of rain the sun came out and the wind blew in from lake superior making it feel like 30 degrees). Caught this pike and decided to come home right then. Didn't have my measuring tape with me (well, it was 15 feet away in the car.) Judging from 2nd picture I wanna say 32 inches.. I think it was maybe a 6 or 7 lb fish.. didn't pick it up.. wind was blowing too much just wanted to unhook it and let it go.|
Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
