15.0" Largemouth Bass caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Saturday April 14, 2012 at 13:20 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a 4" Powerworm - pumpkinseed a Worm by Berkley

It's Saturday and been a week since I was out fishing. Water temperature was between 60-64 F. There will still no sunfish shallow enough for me to cast to them - however, I did catch three largemouth - 2/3 were 15 inches, 1 was 12 inches.

Once I changed to the small rubber worm nose hooked on a drop shot, the bass hit hard, even following and hitting multiple times befroe being hooked. The fish are still spread out.

I also landed a small 16-18 inch pike that hit a 4" powerworm/chartreuse tail (see my next posting). Hopefully we will get a few warm nights or warm rain here in SE Michigan to raise the water temperature to bring the sunfish into the shallows. This year my goal is to get a sunfish over 10 inches.
