24.0" Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Sunday September 09, 2012 at 17:10 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)

Fished for two hours on Walled Lake getting ready for the fall feed. Water temperature fell to 72 F after the rain on Friday evening. It seems fall is on its way – and hopefully the fish too! I caught (4) pike, largest was just under 24 inches, the rest between 12 and 18 inches. With the water level so low (about 2 feet from this time last year) I am having to make extremely long casts. I am currently wading about 100-120 feet further into the lake than I could wade to the deepest point last year. All fish were caught on a ½ oz white roostertail. Tried for about 30 minutes to fish for sunfish, but I was unable to find any and continued fishing for pike.
