24.0 in. Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing in Michigan on 09/21/12
24.0" Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Friday September 21, 2012 at 19:30 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a ½ oz white roostertail w/silver blade a In-Line Spinner by Rooster Tail (Worden's)

Fished for one hour on Walled Lake Friday night. The water temperature dropped to 66 F.

I went 2 of 3 on Largemouth Bass (previous post) and 2 of 2 on northern pike (shown here). Bass were 13 & 6 inches and the pike were about 24 inches.

As I noted on last weeks posts, with the water level so low I am having to make extremely long casts. The fish are still grouped tight wherever there is a weebed with a hard bottom depth change . .

The fish again hit right up until dark, even in this overcast condition. I noticed dark came about 30 minutes earlier due to the oncoming change of seasons and cloud cover. All fish were caught on a ½ oz white roostertail with silver blade.

Interestingly, there are still small hatches happening even though air tempreatures are falling to low 50s at night / mid 60s in day.
