More Reports from Pike Waters

Set off on a Pike mission at 1 pm today......forgot my damn fly box
After catching four Pike in the 5-8lb range, and with a haggard fly on my line, I was certain I would be out of luck for the rest of the afternoon

Got into the smallies in one particular stretch....couple of nice 19" 4 lb-ish smallies landed

Lost a good Pike, and another Bass on very similar screw-ups. Fish were hooked, then they ran directly toward the canoe....fast. As I stripped quickly to catch up with them the hook came free.....saw both fish...both were quality specimens. Nice to know the bite is still on.

Free Robert Earl Keen mixtape from yours truly to the angler who nets the first Five Pound Bass of the season.
