Yeah Dick I like keeping the small ones too

Thanks Adam!... That was an amazing fish you caught for your first Pike and personal best!

When I use to keep fish to eat I really like to eat pike even though I had to fight the dreaded y bones.

Yeah they are a frustrating fish at this size or below Dick… even though it was keeper sized at 24” class… not much you can do with them considering all the bones and very little meat when done cleaning (a lot of waste).

My Dad and Grandpa used to cut them up into steaks and pickle them and eat with sour cream… that was a treat.

Nowadays many lakes around here are getting flooded with even the smaller sized… DNR has taken all restriction on them including the size and limit numbers.

I like how they control the small b.gill population… they are good for that.

On this day they were a welcome bite and even an impressive fight on the heavier spinning gear.

Thanks John!... with ice – out just less than 2 weeks ago, tow vehicle is down, reservoir levels were way down to my shore spot... shees... it’s been a real bad & slow start! The weather has been terrible!!!

Glad to see you doing well

Beating the Skunking with (2) N.Pike

Spring was late showing up with ice-out less than two weeks ago… I finally found some time to do a little shore fishing to test the pulse out on the reservoir. Using an eight ounce jig/swim bait combo I search for the bite during the solunar Minor.Period I nearly come up empty but just one fish on/off.

 

I head to another shore access in town and cast thru the rest of the Minor.Period with just one catch… a zebra mussel!

 

Returning to the original lake later that after-noon the bite finally starts to pick up with 3 fish on and two landed as the Major.Period starts to kick in.

 

Water temps zoomed up to upper 50’s to low 60’s with a couple 70+ degree days. Fishing will get better as the season progresses of course.

 

Keep those lines tight!
