Got my biggest fish yet on saturday afternoon. 38.5 and really fat, I was so exited that I forgot to weigh it . Fishing a drop off from 3 feet to 8 feet of water with a sucker minnow. Didn't get any eyes this weekend but after that northern I just couldn't seem to be sad about it. Big eye in my party was 25 on a chartruse rubber shad.
Learned how to fly fish too using a floating little spider I got about a hundred sunnys in an hour or so. Alot of nice ones in the 8-9" range. Couldn't get a nibble on waxies or minnnows but that fly fishing rocks.
I spent Saturday afternoon fishing a little lake SW of the TC where the 5 hp limit keeps the fishing pressure down even on weekends. There were only about half-dozen other boats on the lake.
I caught two pike, biggest about 4 lbs, and about 10 bass, the three biggest also about 4 lbs (They measured 19 inches), all on sucker minnows with a gold spinner in about 10 ft of water. All the bass seemed to be post-spawn and put up good fights so I don't feel too guilty.
