20.0 in. Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing in Michigan on 09/28/12
20.0" Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Friday September 28, 2012 at 00:00 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a ½ oz black roostertail w/silver blade a In-Line Spinner by Rooster Tail (Worden's)

Fished for two hours on Walled Lake Friday night. The water temperature now at 62 F due to nightly temps having fallen into the low 50F range each night this week in SE MI.

I caught 1 Largemouth Bass (next post) and was 5 for 6 on northern pike (shown here). Bass was 14 inches and the pike were between 15-20 inches. The fish are not large, but after reading the time stamps on my picture files I noticed there was actually a 30 minute period where I caught a fish every 5 minutes. I also lost a pike at the net during that time period.

All fish were caught on ½ oz black roostertails with silver blade.

It was a still and beautiful dusk . As the moon was rising just after the sun set below the horizon. I noticed there was a lot of activity on the lake as there was yet another small hatch, bait fish were being chased out of the water and you could see some nice sized blow ups by bass further off shore near the drop-off. Once the orange daylight gave way to the darkness the lake settled down with no more hits from the pike or bass.
