I may have solved another piece of the spring pike puzzle....either that or I'm just getting rewarded for my time invested in learning more about these critters.
I landed four and lost two others yesterday under bluebird conditions and barely a ripple on the water. I don't think that it will last much longer though....water temps are moving upwards fairly quickly here.
Adrian, your fly (what's left of it) worked well again, as did my Pike Candy in the perch colors.
Nice to kick the skunk out of the boat in convincing fashion. Now with the warming water the smallmouth action should start becoming more reliable.
