Had a good two day float with TD, Bilg25 and another buddy. I personally missed 3 musky and huge smally and this pike before he have me a second chance. Not bad for blue bird days IE worst musky weather ever!

Nice pike. We have some pike in my neck of the woods here in SC, but they're not widespread. They're easy to catch in springtime if you time it right, but usually by this time of year they're pretty deep. Some gear guys trolling for muskies on a local lake will sometimes get a big pike in summer. I would think that river pike may be more susceptible to fly fishing in summer(?). The North Branch of the Susky has some pike but they are rare downriver around here.

I've managed to catch river pike every month of the year. They take flys readily and give you a second chance I ya miss em usually. Unlike there big cousins the musky. The time for the big pike (30 in plus) is the spring and the fall before snow.

Nice pike paco! That fly looks a lot like the one you caught that Musky on this spring when you floated with Jake. I might have to whip some up...

Good work

Thanks T' it wasn't the same fly I just like putting black heads on my musky flys. Kinda the anti-hotspot.
Believe it or not I was throwing a single that day. I'm not a really big fan on non articulated flys but when your fly and approach is getting no love. Ya gotta be willing to change it up.

Pike on the fly #2!!! My brother and I both had some action yesterday, then I went back this afternoon and had one more follow. I think I may have a new sickness. This can get ugly..........

My first toothy on the fly. Was fishing the Glendale tourney and had to give the arm a break, was tossing a blue foam popper. Once while stripping it back in it went under water, and the result was a little chain pickerel. Maybe the skunk is off for me and toothies and the tide will be turning,

Unfortunately no, all came from trolling I think. I know Paco had several follows.

Next year I might just paddle up and down the lake trolling a Gamechanger behind me ;)

Thats cool that you guys at least got some follows. That lake can be tough, especially with the flyrod.

LOL I'm betting the trolling with the gamechanger could get you some serious action!!

My buddy and I put serious time in 10 hrs the first day. Wich between us we had over 13 follows. Two were mid 30s. We just couldn't convert em boat side. The second day fished from bell to bell & nothing. Musky fly fishing is a fickle b@tch.

But we got together had a good time and started laying the ground work for a new central PA chapter of Muskys Inc.

Thats awesome to get that kind of action even tho you couldnt get em to eat. I finally successfully landed my first on the 8 with a flyrod in April up there. They definitely seem to like to inspect the flies for quite a long time. LOL

I still wish I could have made that trip. Oh well, I'll try to get there next year.

Hey Hey I havent been on here in awhile as I f@@@ed a disc up in my back. Congrats to everyone on here catching some toothies recently. Good stuff. I finally got out over fathers day weekend. Full moon and stained water conditions are what I love to fish. Since I can walk normalish now it was worth a shot.

Well it was mid afternoon, started off casting doubles but wasnt getting any love (that I could see), downsized a little to a single ghetto tramp and I am fishing an eddy I know holds muskies and start working the top of the pool, get to about mid pool, doing a pretty erratic retrieve and got stopped dead with a brutal strike, I had a solid hook set, and it was on, big head shakes and a lot of weight on the other end, the fish surfaced after a short burst, by far the biggest muskie Ive had on, a fat fish pushing mid 40's. Took me on a long run, started to head shake and then went to run again and I had too much pressure on her and she shook the hook. I really thought I had a solid hook set and it turns out I didnt. That fish really hurt to lose, the good news is I now know that fish is in the area. This is the first time where I really felt outgunned with my 8wt. After thinking about it more, I feel like had I had a 10wt I would have been able to put the screws to her on the hook set a little more. Im getting beat up this season so far. Muskies 2- Dave- 0. And I am 0-3 on fish over 40 in my first two seasons. FUBAR.

Damn dave that's a bummer. Sounds like it was a great fish. I agree with the 8wt being a bit too light. First fish I ever hooked (and lost) was on an 8wt. It's not that an 8wt can't handle fighting the fish, it's like you said...the hookset. How is casting with that messed up disc?
