Fishing overlooked areas
Slipped out last evening for fish at a small barely flowing creek that was backed up with high levels from the main river. Walleye were cornering bait fish in the shallows and Pike were hanging out along the edges waiting for a potential meal to come too close. If you tend to explore most tributaries, give the ones that are merely a trickle a try and you'll likely find a feeding area that's often over looked.
I caught near 10 Walleye and 3 small Pike, two of which had very fresh wounds that were clearly from a much larger Pike that was lurking somewhere nearby.
This one's interest was peaked with a egg sucking leach Intruder!
