in 2 days of fishing 3 people caught 70 pike and 3 big trout. Most of the pike were snakes but I caught 5 that were around 6 pounds and 1 that was probably 8-8.5 pounds...26-29" fish...most of the fish were around 20". The trout were landed on a buzzbait by my bro, a 1/2 oz spinnerbait by me, and a 5" zoom superfluke by me. We kept two of the big trout (all around 19-20"), and ate em....they were really good, and we also ate 5 small pike.
water clarity was clear, but it was full of algae...full of it.
The pike generally hit a variety of lures from curly tail grubs to spinnerbaits to crankbaits to buzzbaits to panther martins. They were holding 10-15 fow if not a little deeper sometimes.
I fish with a can, 12 lb test, a trebel hook and a ball of powerbait.
