Gators were Chewing

Recommended Posts

This morning I was unable to get on the "Umbrella Rig" lake as the NE wind was too stiff. 

As a consolation, I stayed very local.  This lake has a decent population of SMB as well as the usual Pike & Walleye By Catch.  Well, I did OK.  Got on some decent smallies right off the bat on a 1.5 squarebill but it was obvious early on that the 62 degree water & wind had the pike on the move & looking to eat.   A SK RES was getting choked.  Green cabbage weed in ten feet was the ticket.  Here's the best one of MANY.  Fun Day.

Nice fish.  How does that stack up to the PB last year?

 

Btw, you don't look happy at all.  You should really start enjoying yourself more.

That fish last fall was Freakishly DEEP  - so it had a good 8 or 10 lbs on this one.  Still fun though.

 I'm going back again in the morning.  I bet I didn't go 10 minutes all day with a least a strike from one of these toothy bait wreckers.  Started out with a spinnerbait bit they were ruining them faster than I could re-tie.

We'll, at least you know when to make the switch and target what's biting.  If what is biting is just going to steal your lunch money anyway.  I should probably think about investing in some steel leader material.

Hes smiling in both pictures ? With a BA fish in his hands.. looks happy to me. 

Are you sure?  Looks more like a grimace of displeasure to me.  A frowny face of disgust at having to catch and hold such a large fish just so his camera can get it's precious picture.  Stupid cameras, they're so needy.
