Spent a mini-vacation with the family in So Wisc last week as has been a tradition my entire life. Mostly doing things such as the State Fair, big family dinners, swimming, etc. But I did sneak a couple short early morning outings in as the rest of the adults slept off their hangovers. After not getting a pike for a few years now in the section I fish, I couldn't keep them off my line. Caught double digits.
I use leaders all of the time up there so I wasn't caught off guard. Other species were active on the same presentations as well, and leaders didn't bother them even in the clear water. Really only tossed Shad Raps and Whopper Ploppers the whole time.
I posted a quickie report on another site and added some pics. Today I get this gem of a one liner in my pm from another user: "You know what posting success pictures does, it brings added pressure." Haven't responded yet, not sure if I'm gonna. It's an unfortunate attitude to take. I have yet to speak with a Conservation Officer that says they want less people fishing.
