Hit the river for a couple hours yesterday afternoon.
Put on an orange 3/8 oz jig with a paddletail Keitech. Caught a healthy 24" pike after about a half hour. 15 minutes later I caught an 18 incher. The smaller one put up a better fight.
I watched a pair of hummingbirds flitting in the upper branches of a dead tree. Feasting on spiders I suspect. A redtail cried overhead and bluejays called in the forest.
A while later I hooked a small bass but it jumped & spat the hook. It was getting late so I packed it in.
Keep calm and fish on...
There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
