11 Mile tourney

   Tough weekend and the big skunk !!! Fishing was really tough for the guys targeting pike. Alot of kokes and trout caught and the pike that were brought in were caught by the guys fishing for the kokes and trout( always the case ).
Water is still cold,hovering around 50 degrees, and pretty clear. We tried everything we could, fishing deep, middle and shallow with alot of follow ups but wouldn't take anything. Tried cranks, spinners, tube jigs even kastmasters. My son did catch a couple small trout ( both released ). We talked to alot of the other pike fisherman and they had the same luck, one buddy of mine even left early to go to another lake ( can't blame him ). Another partner pulled in one pike of 5# and another buddy had the same.
    I did have the strangest thing happen I've ever seen pike fishing. We resorted to try trolling the deep into the shallows, stopped close to shore to reel in to start casting, as soon as my crank got in site there was a a pike following up about 40 in. I figured. My son just stared, LOL, it came right up to the boat within 2 ft. away. I tried to figure 8 the crank, nothing, it just sat there staring at us. I bonked it on the snout with the crank, nothing...LOL... I even bonked it on the head with the rod tip, NOTHING. My son told me look at the baby under it, which there was, about a lil 8 incher swimming around right under her. Finally after about 10 minutes it turned and swam off like to say pack up and go home now!...LOL... it was just bizarre.
   Congrats to the others on this site that had any luck down there, I'm heading to the Fork in a couple weeks, got the pike woody blues!!!!
   Have fun & cya on the water.
