Today was about the worst day I've experienced on the GMR. I got to the 41 bridge at noon on the dot and attempted to fish a few of my favorite spots downstream but not a single bite. Not on Minnows or any of my growing arsenal of lures. So I go north on the bike path walking in my waders and feeling like a jacka** and start searching for a safe crossing to get at least under the bridge. I found a couple that started out promising then dead-ended. I finally came through a small stand of trees just below the golf course and came out by the shallow pool on the northeast side of the bridge. Just as I come out in the open a fisherman already on the edge of the island and fishing that pool reachs in the water and pulls up a northern pike about 24" long(at first I thought it was a large saugeye so that gives you an idea of length). He holds it up proudly and shows it to me then stuffs it in his stuff to die. What he did was legal and so I just turned around and searched for another safe access point and finally found one right below the bench on the grass berm beside the bike path at the very bottom of the golf course. I got in and fished minnows and threw lures until 2:15 with still no sign of a fish in my neighborhood so I track across to the hole directly under the bridge. At 2:32 I caught a 10 inch LM followed 5 minutes later by a small rockie. By this time the wind was blowing colder and harder than ever and the clouds looked like they were going to open up at any minute so I called it a day. Today sucked. I can't wait to get out there again!
