    Change of plans pays off twice

    Had a change of fishing plans for the day.....so... seeings as the girlfriend was having a card making day and ended up 5 of her friends coming over my house 😲🤔 I decided to take off for a couple hours this aft to get a few casts in.....went to a pike haunt I have been known to try out.....armed with yep.....you guessed it....a white twister tail ... after casting my arm off in the endzone I decided to move down field and what fo you know!....got a little on about 25 inches at the 250 yard line 😉... so was good just to get out.... will post a pic later when I figure out how...Haha....then what do you know... stopped at fresco on way home to get a couple things... got out of the car and saw a little yellow envelope.... had to check it out... turned out to be a 10 giftcard bringing my total to under 5 bucks at the checkout... humm 2 lucky things today...... and for those of you itching.. there happened to be some of that crystal like substance forming in a few spots along the bank

    I still have a few of those 5" white twisters ....better get them wet again ! Baby , it was cold outside , last night ....new Napa battery in the G6 today . Before it freezes over too much I'll have to try the live minnows again . The pike are hungry ( heard it through the grape vine) and it's fun watching a float disappear under the water .....sort of like carp fishing !

    Float fishing at whirlpool

    If you aren't sure on how much weight to run.....look at it like this...... set your float where you can see your line for some practice casts....if your line drifts and lags behind your float.... too much weight...if it drifts in front not enough..... then set your float stop to how deep you want to fish....and spread your weight up your line..... sorry to babble....just trying to help....I have over 40 years solid experience fishing the river from fort Erie to Niagara on the lake and although most don't know me here... the ones that do know I have managed to accidentally catch one now and again😁

    Also keep in mind....salmon spawned out a while back...littered the bottom with dead soldiers.....Lakers are known to scavenge and that coincides with their spawn making the river fertile with eggs for a bit.. so matching the hatch for early steel with roe makes sense if you think about it....then after that it's the winter baitfish feedbag😉

    Wow that reply came out weird... me caveman me hate my stupid phone... also you want to make sure to spread your weight in increments down your line so that your bait drifts as straight down from your float and same speed of the current as you can....if you watch you can see the distinct line of some current drifts in the water...throw a stick in and watch what it does
