Curiosity getting the better of me, and hearing it is a pike time of year, I gave the 'hoga near Rt8 a try for the first time ever on Sunday. Launched at Waterworks and went downstream to the powerplant. This was a promising looking stretch of water, but man was it dead. I didn't see any bugs, minnows, swirls of the water, or any other indication that fish might live here. It was interesting navigating my 16' tracker through the first 200 yds after the launch that averaged like 2' deep and was full of trees. Oh well, I suppose if I had tried it my first time and hooked 'em like crazy it wouldn't be a challenge. Guess that's why they call it fishing and not catching. Anyone else ever do any good in this stretch?
