Good one Pete! How big is that fish?
Great report Mark. Sounds like you guys had some decent fishing even if the big ones didn't cooperate. Wish I could have made the trip down -- Maybe next year???
I did manage to get out and chase some local pike but didn't have much success. I decided to try each of the pike swap flies until I caught something on it. Well, the fish didn't want to play that game so I just switched to a new fly every half hour or so. Mark's Piker Blonde was the only fly that fooled a pike, a scrappy 22"er that came off the hook at the boat. Another fish of about the same size followed my yellow rabbit strip fly but didn't hit. That was it for pike sightings. I also caught a few monster yellow perch on a woolly bugger.
