The pike have been biting this year! Spring time brought up some larger ones including a 42" one that broke my rod. New gear as well that has been amazing and made fishing a lot better. I have used my 3-Tand reel enough now to fully say that it is my favorite all around large arbor reel that I have fished with. The lakes that I did get to in Canada and the more local ones all seemed to fish good at first but with the warmer winter the fish moved deep faster then in years past. Hopefully this fall will have some good days!
