Sunny with light winds....just perfect. We were not involved with the SLA Tournament, just fishing for fun. Unfortunately I forgot my camera and caught the biggest SM Bass ever. I guess it's not legal so it doesn't count but I figure it was over 6 pounds...looked more like a carp.
With respect to pike we caught 11. Most around 3 pounds and one at 6 plus. 5 hours x 3 anglers/rods. The water temp ranged from 46-53 degrees and the pike were scattered. We caught them all on jigs but we aften saw trollers using their landing nets therefore trolling also had potential.

Hey - good going Duck!

Wasn't by chance you guys my son and I were chatting with eary afternoon, was it? There were 3 fellows in the boat, fishing with jigs. We were the ones with a 5-year old at the helm (ie: operating the trolling motor....).

Anyway, if it was - we ended up catching a fairly monster smallie soon after we parted ways.

Yeah andrewm....I think your son will very likely grow up to be quite a proficient angler. He looked pretty comfortable handling a boat,rod and reel at the tender age of 5. It's too bad the fish were not more aggressive.

If you were the team in the black Lund you seemed to be doing OK. If your fishing a tournament where is a real tough call.
