Dropped A Bowfin
Tonight I fished at Rock Lake from the Trophy. I was on the lake by 5:30PM I started out by going to the inlet from Bulldog Lake. I got two pike there on the Havoc Grass Pig.
I then went to the RPRO and quickly caught another smaller pike. I started trying for sunfish. I actually saw a crappie as I was moving along. It was pretty much completely calm and the sunfish were really spooky. Finally I started get a couple and I put the anchor out. Action was a little slower than the other day and I missed a ton of bites. Much to my surprise I set into something that felt more significant and sure enough I got a nice crappie to the boat, as I lifted it up it got off. I got a couple of more sunfish and switched to trying for dogfish at 7:50pm. I got two pike and then noticed my knot on the Tyger Leader was coming loose, so I retied . I then got 2 more pike. I threw a cast up by shore and I got thunked by a dogfish and then as they do, it got off. I need to find my net, I think it's at the lake place. I then got 2 more pike and a 15" bass by the beaver dam. There were several otters around tonight.
I bought home 6 of the 9 sunnies I caught.
I forgot my headlamp at home, so I couldn't fish at the GOMH.
