18.0" Largemouth Bass caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Monday May 28, 2012 at 13:30 near Novi in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a Drop shot #8 hook & redworm a Worm

The wife and I tried the south end of the lake due to the hydroplane races on Walled Lake. Caught a dozen pumpkinseeds 8- 8 1/2 inches (but short of our 9inch target, see my next post), but no bluegill. Interesting as to how you can find colonies of different sunfish so dependent on the bottom content and weed growth within 25 yards of one another.

We also caught three largemouth, the largest 18 inches (quite a large fish for a #8 octopus hook, shown here). I plan on returning to this end of the lake because they used a harvester on the north end where the boats were launched and raced.

Water temperature was about 76 degrees and climbing between 11am – 2pm.
