18.0 in. Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing in Michigan on 05/27/12
18.0" Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Sunday May 27, 2012 at 07:20 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a 3/8 oz Roostertail, black w/silver blade a In-Line Spinner by Rooster Tail (Worden's)

Fishing 7-10am in Walled Lake, water temperature starting at 74 degrees F. Fishing is really warming up however, I am getting anxious to find the larger sunfish so I can meet my goal and get on to fishing for largemouth.

During the three hours trip I started going big to see if I could hang a pike or a large bass. I was able to land an 18 inch northern (shown here), two large mouth (12-13 inches, nothing special), and a half dozen bluegill (up to 9 inches, largest shown here, 10 inches is minimum to enter for a Michigan DNR Master Angler patch C&R).

All in all, not a bad day but since I am keeping my trips short, I am concerned that I am not putting my bait in front of the largest fish. See my next posts for the largemouth and bluegill (oddly enough, no pumpkinseeds today, but I have been catching a mix of female and male sunfish, so I know it is just a matter of time before I hang one worth a certificate).
