1. Guessing a hybrid based on vertical striping.

    12.0 in. Northern Pike

      That's a Northern. Dark body with light markings is always a pike.

      If yo Google Muskie Vs. Northern Pike you will see that Muskie have the vertical markings and Pike have horizontal markings.

      I have seen guesses all across the board on this one from my FB post.

      Finally got one in an area known for them......took long enough
  5. 26 in. Northern Pike with a Jig/Trailer

  6. Surface temp was down 4-5 degrees this morning with overnight temps and winds the last few days....down to 69.

  7. No bass today, but not a bad consolation

    23 in. Northern Pike with a Jig and Craw

  8. I struggle to find these consistently, but found submerged rock today that should pay off in the future

    15 in. Smallmouth Bass with a Jig and Craw

      thanks Nicholas...I've spent a lot of time on the deeper weed edges lately, though going out at dusk usually isn't possible for me....I'm sure I'll ...more find some spots in those situations that pay off, even during the day, just gotta keep plugging away.

      U wanna go out into 12-25 fow this time of year find the weed edge and move out from there the water is cooler down there you can find more bass and walleye after ...more dusk move to 12 fow just off the weeds on north shore before sunrise is when u wanna be in 3 fow for big fish

      Thanks Steve, appreciate the advice. My FF is pretty low tech, so I have to rely on topo maps (fishidy map included) and just need more time/experience to find ...more spots like this....and this prob qualified as your scenario

      Look for small underwater points and fish the ends with that jig in 10-18fow.
