I was fishing a local lake with my friend Mat today hoping to connect with some nice smallies. We didn't fish for a long time but I still managed to hook a few fish. Water is still reletivaly cold and I managed to find a few smallmouths but no giants!!! Pikes seem to be everywhere this year... I don't think I have ever caught that many pikes fishing for bass... At least they are not cutting me off everytime! We had a good time on the water today even if Mat didn't catch a single fish... Instead of fishing areas that I knew I decided to try all kinds of new spots and even if most of them didn't pay off, a few of them did and I made sure to mark them on my GPS! Here is a nice smallie I caugth today with only one eye!!
