Casting and Catching

Awoke this morning to the full moon and a splitting headache.  Might as well go fishing!

Tried a Ribit frog and a willow leaf spinner bait and had a couple of fish take lethargic strikes and miss.  Switched back to the frog in the slop.  Had an aggressive pike take three chases at it and miss.  The next piked chomped off the tails.

Slipped off the frog and put on a twister and caught him. Good thing we practice catch and release as you can see it was previously caught.  Aggressive little buggers.

Switched to a spinnerbait with Colorado blades and a twister tail.  Lots of thump and vibration in the water.  Another pike.

Didn’t catch a bass until I switched to a swim bait.  The first one wasn’t very big, but it was a bass.

The second was much larger, about 18″ and came out of about 18″ of water.  Amazing how shallow they will get.  In fact this one beached itself, thank you very much.

The swim bait was on fire for the next 10 minutes.  Caught five more bass and one pike, missed three other fish and got bit off.
