A great fall view inside Chapman Pond, but no action.

Only took over 20 years, but finally connected with a good one on a white spinner bait in one of the marinas.





Heart was pumping a bit with no net on board, but thankfully, Ron came through with the boga and I didn't have to make a phone call. biggrin



Needless to say, we were all pumped when the fish came on board! beerchug A fat one, right at 37 inches. Released and swam away fine.

Thanks to Capt. Paul for leading another angler to a Piketoberfest win. It's a lucky boat, for sure.

We had a good crew with unreal weather for a great post-fishing gathering.



Awesome to have "Dad" Dona with us. Nice for Jighead and Paul D. to visit.

Of course, no one leaves hungry!







Paul's traditional pea soup and Kapt's chili were phenomenal!


Kapt didn't skimp on extras and had a hearty batch ready to go for when we got off the water!

Congrats Mitch, 37 inches is a nice fish.

Since I have never fished this event I really have no input but if you want to catch more Pike maybe hold the event at Bantam.
Just a thought.



Tommy, yes, could be a nice change up to go to Bantam. We did it at Lilly one year, too.
