|16.75 Mad Maxx (Sweet Revenge)|
Conditions: 80℉, Partly Cloudy, Very Windy NW becoming manageable
Water Temp: 77℉
It was a hot and humid day. I slept for most of it after the girls went home. I almost didn't go out in the Trophy with the way the wind was blowing. I wanted to fish over towards Jenny's, but the wind wasn't having that. I took a chance that it was a NW wind and ran to Loon Sex Bay. It was sort of protected there. There was a deck boat fishing in the NW corner, but out from the slop. I pulled in just SE of them. I had a nice pike come flying out of the water on my first cast. I didn't set the hook and it came off. I missed the first blow up quite a ways in the slop. The deck boat left. I put a cast over the open water and the 16.75 grabbed it. The second bass of the night missed the frog the first time. I positioned myself better to get a shot at it and caught it (14"). I caught a 14.66" as I started working my way West. On the very next cast I set into a big blow up. It was a pike and it stole Sweet Revenge. Rather than retie I went to a back up rod with a Bobby's Perfect on it. I got a 16.5" on that. I had a couple few hits tonight from probably small fish.
