We got 9 total between the 3 of us in the boat today and I got 4 of them. No big ones all in the 4 to 7 lb range, but its a start.

Rick, somebody sent me a screenshot of your face book post about a couple of giants that had been caught recently. Any more news on them?

first bass of 2020.jpg
This was my first fish of the year a big fat bass that hit my 160mm Kanata perch jerkbait at Hayden on about the 5th of Jan. We were pike fishing but this was the only bite. She was 6.6 lbs 23" long.

So I managed to get 5 more pike in all this rain we been having and it has been a very tuff bite, but I'm happy it's rain and not snow. I haven't been able to find any big fish yet as the guy I'm fishing with has very poor electronics on his boat, so we are almost fishing blind. I guess we are lucky to find any fish with what we are working with. I keep hoping I can get my buddy with the new boat (and an awesome Lowrance self mapping system side imaging sonar unit) to take me out there, so I can actually learn a bit of what's out there and some better spots to fish. So here is one of the five fish I got, they have all been between 3 to 5 lbs. Although I did hook up on one really nice fish but for whatever reason the hook pulled out. Still catching them mainly on flutter spoons, but after throwing spoons and other baits for about 2 hours without any fish landed I put on a spinnerbait with a huge polished cop[per blade(about a #9) I made myself and slow rolling it in 20+ feet of water I manged to get my first fish of the day. The fishing picked up some and we got the rest on the flutter spoons. I must say this new spoon I found I'm very impressed with. I think it will be knocking them dead this spring as well so can't wait to fish it in my monster fish spot.
