Well, Woodtic and I fished hard yesterday targeting anything we could get. The bass were were hitting good on leeches along just about any weed edge we could find. I got a really nice one in Priests Bay (photo to follow). We also tried for some walleyes hitting deep edges. Did manage to boat 2, one at 16 and another at 20 inches. Leeches were the preferred bait while we did catch a few on fatheads. I used primarily lime-green hooks with an orange bead while woodtic tended to the more exotic stuff like twistees with leadheads. Fished all over Priests and Halstead bays trying to stay away from the recreational boaters. All in all a fairly successful outing. We were on the water by 7:30am and off by 6pm.

Almost forgot... Woodtic did land an 10 lb pike. That was a lot of fun on 6lb test and an ultralite (photo to follow as soon as Woodtic sends me the images).

Nice fish!

FWIW, I read recently that according to one study, holding up big fish by the jaw (or gill flap) can adversely affect the fish's vertebrae. The recommended method was by the gill flap with one hand and the other cradling the belly. IIRC, the study was of muskies and the fish were 20-plus lbs, but it might be good to keep in mind.

I have been seeing people, mostly pros, hold up bass by the lips for years. I see nothing wrong with that. The problem is when you try to display the fish horizontally by holding just the lips. This will, indeed cause damage. A lot of pros in the old days used to hold the bass with one hand, then rotate their wrist to force the fish into a horizaontal position. This would make the mouth look huge. This would put a lot of pressure on the jaw and could cause the jaw to break. A bass with a broken jaw cannot feed and will starve to death. It is recommended that if you want to display a bass in the horizontal position, you should support the body with the other hand. If you want to display the bass in a vertical position, it is perfectly okay to hold by the lips, as long as you keep your fingers straight.

I think Odin might be referring to the northern. There have been studies done that holding large fish vertically w/Boga Grips and other lip devices can cause the head/jaws to essentially stretch and separate internally from the body, which can cause the fish to not be able to eat. I have no first hand knowledge as to whether this is accurate, and don't know if the studies are legitimate or are funded by PETA for propaganda purposes, but I do know they are out there.

Nice fish either way.
