15.0" Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Saturday September 01, 2012 at 20:30 near Novi in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a In-Line Spinner by Rooster Tail (Worden's)

Well, it is that time of year again, the softball tryouts are over and practice is starting. Kids will go back to school on 9/4/2012, nights are getting longer and water temperature is cooling a bit. 76F at sunset tonight. Trying the south end of Walled Lake. Water is very low, I Could walk out half again as far as this spring. It means I am only fishing a very shallow in side weedline – perhaps 3ft –but if there are any fish they should be aggressive and willing to hit.

I saw quite a few fish on the move feeding on surface, probably sunfish. I went to the Roostertail spinner to see if the were any gamefish around. I caught this small northern pike – about 15 inches – and lost another a bit larger. That was all the excitement for the night.

It was a nice little trip to get all the tackle working before the fall run happens as water temperature drops. I just hope we get some rain to raise the lake levels, otherwise I am concerned most of the fish will stay deep this fall and not make a push towards shore.
