  4. My Daughter's boyfriend took me out on his boat Friday afternoon. While fishing for LMB and Crappie, I caught this Northern Pike. He CHOKED it! Took a couple ...more minutes to resuscitate, but thankfully swam back to which it came from. Thank you Aaron for an enjoyable afternoon!

  5. What a crazy day. I started trying to catch Stripers. I was surrounded by Alwifes and Herron, but no Stripers. I then tried for Crappies. As I worked the shoreline, ...more looking for laydowns, I threw a little Crappie jig and bang, I went for a lonnngg ride, it was a 12lb Carp. I then started working for Bass. I went with a Ned Rig, and caught 2 Crappie. So since nothing was going according to plan, I went with my trusty Spinnerbait and caught 5 LM. Well, was better than working.
