Yes, I read Jimmy's post and agree 100%. Look for the warmest water and slow down. Albert hooked four pike and his technique is to let the jig lay on the bottom and bounce it slowly. It sounds easier than it is because I cannot duplicate it and he catches 90% of the pike when water temps are below 50 degrees. The only one I caught was foul hooked. Albert lost one of four that bit through his 50 pound fluorocarbon leader.

We were out @ the Bluffs for about 2hrs, 1 pike approx. 4lbs, tr. speed 2-2.4 marked lots...maybe Jimmys right, slow it down.(water is still too cold) Either way it was a great first day of soft water.
