Sunny skies and good fishing have returned

Within a day of the icy cold weather departing last week and the reappearance of sunny skies we started catching a lot of big northern pike.
The key is to fish extremely shallow areas, apparently where the water is warming up the fastest.
We caught many big northern pike, slot size or larger. The largest was 45 inches.
Virtually every fish was caught on Mepps #5 or Mepps #4 spinners. All colors worked equally well.
Walleyes also started biting with a vengence. These were taken on 1/4 ounce black jigs tipped with twister tails, Gulp Alive grubs, and various live bait.
