When we got on the water at 7:30 it was calm. Water temperature was 43º F. By late morning it was a very windy. The four people fishing in Brian's boat were Brian, Debbie, Tim and myself. We caught about 30 pike and 7 rainbow trout.
The first fish of the day was a 2lb 9oz pike caught by Debbie. At first we thought she was the only one who was going to catch fish. She caught quite a few before the rest of us started catching fish. At about 10:30 you could catch a pike almost every time you put your line out.
After the initial strike I wasn't sure I had a fish because it wasn't moving. I felt like I was pulling the boat to the fish. Tim always said big pike feel like your pulling in a log. He was right.
