After you tell me where to buy big shiners (see my other post from today), maybe you can steer me in the direction of books or articles on fall fishing for big pike. I have the old In Fisherman "Pike" book, buy there isn't a lot in there about early fall fishing. I like to go around the end of September, beginning of October. I think it's just before turnover.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
