Been a slow start for me this spring with this, that and the other thing... But got out yesterday morning for some shore fishing. Fished some docks for crappie. But only caught small perch, bluegills and some huge rockbass. Lots of fun, but not the target species, so switched from my bobber and tube to a small spinnerbait and first cast hit a pike. I then started fan casting off the docks and ended up having a great morning landing 9 pike, until the rain moved in and I called it a day. Lots of fun and now I remember why I love fishing, the thump of a fish slamming your lure is so addictive...

Water depth, 6 to 14 fow

Structure, irregular rocky bottom with mixed emerging weeds

Until next time, happy fishing and tightlines..

Pics to follow..

Sounds like a good time Jerry, glad you were able to get out. Plan on getting the boat wet for the first time this season tomorrow. Only a month behind last years schedule!!!

I agree with the addiction, can't get enough!!

Good job on the pike and other species. I'm glad the water has finally warmed up enough for the pike to start hitting. Nice to feel some weight on the line again.
