|Aruku Shad Meets a Black & Decker Tackle Wrecker|
Next we went out and tried to find a good weedline. It started raining again and the wind had come up out of the SE. I got a rock bass on our first stop on a bluegill Pure Poison with a green pumpkin Grass Pig Jr.. On about our 3rd or 4th spot I got a couple of small pike on my Aruku Shad. I had a big 30 inch class pike hit at the Aruku Shad right by the boat but it didn't get hooked. I threw back in the same direction and got nailed. I figured it was the same fish but it turned out to be a big old dogfish. We netted it and it got all tangled up. You can see from the picture what it did to my bait.
Next we went to some reeds on the South shore Barry got a couple of good bass and I got a 25" pike. We tried a few docks without any luck. We cruised around looking at some things then went back up to the North side. I got a small bass on the Ninja Spin and that was the last fish of the day. We were off the water by 3:30 I think.
