Northern Pike Tournament
Saturday, May 1st 2010
The day broke with a beautiful sunrise and no rain. What a great day to go fishing with a great group of friends. These early tournaments make a great "shake down cruse" for all boaters and co-anglers. It is surprising how many things you find out are missing from your tackle boxes the first time on the water.
Boats get ready to leave the launch site.
Blast off was at 8 am and soon everyone was fishing and catching fish.
Jack Wilson lll and his partner.
The bay was calm all day with bright sunshine.
T.J. Church and Steve Brown.
The format of the tournament was for every angler to enter only their one biggest northern pike. This keeps the stress down on the fish by not having to keep up to 5 northern alive for each member in the live wells.
Frank Doll and Ryan Hyde.
Soon word spread that there were a couple of 6 plus pound northern were boated, so then even nice 4 and 5 pound fish were being released.
