I hooked this Pike with a yellow plastic worm on a lead-head jig. I break off the barbs on the hooks for easy release, but they still get stuck. I had to ask Liz to get me some pliers because in my excitement, I dropped my hook degorger in the water (Chris dove in an got it out later).
The second pike I caught just self released as I pulled it toward the dock.
Wednesday I got another Pike and a small Smallmouth bass, but there hasn’t been any action since then.
There are a lot of weeds in the water. I catch those all the time.
