Having only a few hours to fish in the middle of the day today I decided to grab my tip-ups and panfish poles and try for some pike and sunnies. I picked up some waxies and sucker minnows and shiners and headed out to the lake. After a little looking around i was able to find some active smaller fish in 6' of water and decided that would be a good spot to set out the tip-up. So I put a 3" shiner on it and set it down. A little more exploring and I found some larger panfish biting in about 13' of water. So I set the house up there and decided to fish there. Not less then a minute after setting up I got a flag ran over to it and found a 8" blue gill had completly swallowed the 3" shiner. Not what I wanted but interesting none the less. So I set the tip-up back down with a larger shiner this time and proceeded back to the fish house to catch bluegills. After a couple dozen blue gills and a couple of bass caught on my "gill pill" and waxie I noticed about 3' of the bottom come up towards my lure on my marcum which I pointed out to my buddy and all of a sudden my pole was bending in half and the fight was on. 15 minutes later I pulled up this beauty measuring in at just under 40". So from now on I think I will fish for gills with tip-ups and shiners and pike with waxies small jigs and 4lb test. [image]http://12-24-07_1507.jpg[/image]

It was an awesome fight especially when we watched it do the gator death roll under the ice twice.

I was still so pumped didn't realize it wasn't straight and the guy taking the picture thought it was funny so he didn't say nothing.
