Fished rifle today from 6:45 AM to 3:45 PM. Fishing was slow. I landed one fat 30" pike on a tipup in 6.5 fow with it 1 foot off of the bottom. Baited with anchovy. Fish was mortally wounded, and harvested Nobody was getting anything, I guess I just got lucky. Had another couple bites too but didn't get to the tipup in time before the fish was gone.
