fished the mississippi this weekend with 12lb. water was still below 40 degrees. fished wingdams with jigs and hair. kept 6 eater eyes. biggest was a nice 8 lb eye which was released. 12lb got about 5 pike as well. didnt see a ton of other fish caught but the ones that were caught had a good average size. good number of pike taken and a few hog eyes as well. trying to get back up in about two weeks. bite will only get better. not bad for a couple of members... . here's a cell phone pic of the ones we kept.
