Hit Atwood in the eve. on Sun. Caught a few decent bass and managed a 19" eye and lost a beauty at the boat. I didn't cuss at all. (yeah right) :mad: Snapped me off at the edge of the boat. After watching her swim away I have decided to upgrade to 10# flourocarbon instead of 8# I couldn't believe how hard she fought for a saugeye. Sounded more like a northern or muskie trying to get the net under her. As soon as I get this %#[email protected] camera to work again I will post a pic I took. Water is 52 at the damn and 67 in the back bays at Delroy. All fish were caught in 5 foot or less on spoons. It's getting close to prime time. Can't wait.

Great catch! Hopefully that's a sign of what's to come this year at Atwood! We're overdue for a great fishing year there!!

I didn't catch that pike Mike. I found that picture somewhere on the net and thought I'd post it. It's a siamese northern pike that someone caught. I'm pretty sure that is a real picture. It's amazing the thing(s) didn't die. I've seen 2 headed turtles and 5 legged sheep and stuff on the news, but that pike just blew my mind.

The flourocarbon line comment was an inside joke to a friend of mine. (Long story but funny.) In all seriousness I am going to look into different brands as far as overall strength. I like to use it (8# Berkley Vanish)to make leaders out of but up until Sunday I never had any problems with it. Of course till ya say that anyways. Murphys Law was alive and well on Sunday. If anyone catches a big saugeye with a firetiger spoon hanging on it's lip, say hello for me.

Is the reward for the spoon or the fish? I'll keep an eye out for it, might go down Sat. if the weather cooperates this weekend.

You can have both the spoon and the fish. Heck I just wanted to get a weight and a measurement...and may be just one little taste.
But NOOOOOOO!!!
