  1. Hot humid day, bright skies with big puffy white clouds, wind blowing my drift from west to east side of shipping channel. Typical hit on a bondy bait, felt a "tick" ...more on the downstroke of my vertical jig and then the electricity of a live fish on the upstroke and then immediately set the hook. Good fight for about 90seconds before I corralled her into the net. First musky of the year for me! 35 inches.

    10 lb. 8 oz. 35 in. Muskellunge with a Bondy Bait (black)

  2. 27" pike while fishing for largemouth, which I caught for of. Nothing spectacular about this catch other than it was cool to catch a pike using a top water ...more bait, a first for me. Also it gave me the opportunity to post a pic on Fishidy wearing my brand new solar shirt, also a first for me :D

    27 in. Northern Pike with a Zara Spook

  3. Michigan Master Angler Sheephead, 26-1/2" 8lb 9oz. Was fishing for smallmouth and on my last cast of the night I hooked this beast. One helluva fight, I thought ...more at first I had a new state record smallie, LOL! Fishing a rocky outcrop in the Trenton Channel just north of my house.

  6. Epic day with my dad on spawning flats. This was the 29th out of 30 bass I caught tonight. Keitech 4" Easy Shad (baby bass color) on an Owner 1/8oz swim jig. ...more Swimbaits ruled the night. My dad added 9 bass of his own.

    3 lb. 8 oz. 17 in. Largemouth Bass

    1. Fishing the banks, need a light jig head (1/8 oz) so you can keep the bait suspended in the water column without having to retrieve too fast.

  8. Great great night fishing for largemouth on top water. Walkin' tha dog with a black Zara Spook on calm waters in Airport Bay. Just about ever 2nd to third ...more cast I had a fish lunging at my lure. Many times the missed it altogether and sometimes they would take 2 or 3 lunges at it on the same retrieve like this girl did (18", 3.5lbs). Had a blast tonight, ended up netting 14LMBs tonight between 8pm and dusk.

    3 lb. 9 oz. 18 in. Largemouth Bass
