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.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
