this afternoon, using sucker minnows. Fishing was slow but I managed to catch 4 pike, 2 under bobbers and 2 video fishing. Biggest was a solid 8 lbs and put up a very good fight making run after run. I hooked it in the corner of the mouth, which helped. Luckily, I put new 10 lb test fireline on that reel a couple hours earlier.
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
