Evening on Erskine
I was going to fish Rock Lake but the Access was packed so I went to Erskine. I fished from 5PM-9PM. Conditions were windy out of the SE, diminishing and starting to blow as I got off the water. I basically fished across the North End of the lake from NW to East. First hit was a pike that didn't hook up. Next I got a almost 14" bass on the Pure Poison & Craw Fatty. I got 5 bass on a white Grass Pig and the Pike. I missed a quality 10lb class pike when it hit the Grass Pig coming towards me. I didn't get a good hookset. I caught one on a Fluke at the only dock I fished. As it calmed down I went back to the NW corner and got 5 on a Horny Toad including my biggest at 16.75". I didn't take bass pictures early because of the wind, then I forgot about it. I missed a bunch of hits, mostly small fish, on the Horny Toad but I think I missed one big one. Not sure what kind of fish it was. It looked like I was going to get stormed on, so I left about 15 minutes before I should have.
