thinking I'll try to catch some pike this week. caught one mostly by accident last time at 11 mile. anyone care to share here or PM me your suggestions for whether I focus at 11 mile or spinney and roughly where? this will be a day trip so not a ton of time to drive all over looking.

at 11 mile I was thinking fishing the weeds in/around hobart but would love others' ideas. fishing from shore as per usual.

Plenty of big fish in Spinney. I have personally seen 2 40"ers come out of there in the same weekend, on different days and in different conditions. Spinney is underrated, IMO.
nice. thanks! not so much going for size although a monster would be all kinds of fun (and the wife will undoubtedly be the one to get it). getting better at filleting them and they are damn tasty in the frier.

I fish mostly high mtn trout and get 12-14". 18" is a big trout to this noob, 20+ is a big pike...I can't fathom a 30" fish. If I get one I'm signing my name on it in sharpie, taking a fish bra pic and putting it back for you. :)

Put in the time the next few weeks and I'm sure you will bump in to a nice pike. Can't catch them from the couch, so get up to Spinney/ 11-mile as much as possible. This is the time of year to target big fish. Low light seems to be better in my opinion, but a lot of depends on what the fish react to in a specific body of water. Definitely gets your blood pumping when you see a 40" at your feet. Good luck!
