24.0" Northern Pike caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Sunday October 07, 2012 at 00:00 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a 4 inch black ripple shad on 3/8 oz scrounger jig a Swimbait by Berkley

Fished for two hours on Walled Lake again Sunday evening. The water temperature now at 58F. Wind from Saturday had fallen off to a slight breeze. I committed to use only the swimbait, the fish had a choice of black or white on the 3/8 ounce scrounger head this night. Black was the choice again.

I caught 4 northern pike (shown here). Fish were 18-24 inches. I had one fish that followed to within 10 feet of me while wading, while another hit so hard once he knocked slack into the line. I missed on the initial hookset, but snapped it back out of the weeds and within 5 cranks he crushed it.
