      good fish
  2. 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.

  3. 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

      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.

  7. 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

  9. Wanted to try a spot I was looking at on the map this winter once the water warmed up. Got to the spot and there was a boat already there... and we was catching ...more fish too. Watched him catch multiple white bass, a couple smallies and even a steelhead! Get off my spot I scouted man!!! Finally, skies darkened and lightning started getting near. He boogeyed and I slipped in; just enough for three casts to catch this nice 19-1/2" smallie before I had to get the hell outta there myself!
