18.0" Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Sunday September 02, 2012 at 22:00 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a ½ oz white roostertail a In-Line Spinner by Rooster Tail (Worden's)

I left the drop shot and bait at home and decided to commit to fishing for bass and pike with artificial baits today. Wind blowing from NE at about 7-10 mph creating a ripple on the top of the water. Proved to bring the fish in shallow to feed even in the sunlight. Water temp at 75F.

I was able to catch a mixed bag of 2 largemouth (see previous post) and 5 northern pike (largest shown about 18 inches) , all on a 1/2oz white roostertail. The pike teeth are so bad on the baits that I need to purchase some more spinners. Problem is that I have bought all the spinners in this size locally and will now have to order them. I am thinking of buying some wire to re-make the lures I do have. The only problem is that I do not want to mess with re-tying the hackle on the roostertail, so I think I will try to thread a small tube onto the treble hook for a different look. I’ll let everyone know how my experiment works.
