4/22 Momence, Sunday Evening
went 3 for 4 sunday... four fish on, three landed.
got out to momence to fish between 5:30 & about 7:45pm.. wanted to try an assortment of new Mepps Spinner i had just ordered. I was intrigued after having two (what felt like) sizeable fish on the weekend before come loose before i could get a glimpse of what they were.
I tossed a #3 trout spinner & landed a little pike.... within 10 minutes on the same lure landed a smallie around 6:00 p.m.
I switch to a #4 mepps spinner & right at sunset tie into a nice Pike.. bigger than the first one. I move further down the river & cast the same mepps #4 & something else slams it for about 10 secs & shakes loose just as it was completely dark... decide to call it a day after going 3 for 4.. & not much light to work with. Encouraged by the outing, i believe i learned a few things that day, a couple techniques to try. Was my first real try with Mepps Spinners & i'm a fan. have always heard good thing about them, but never got around to ordering any.
Will upload a few photos when i get the chance... all fish were released
