After my last fishing trip here on June 5, which was a bit slow, I came back to the same spot for a retest. There were very few boat on the lake and nobody fished near me. The day started off great. Within and hour I caught 2 pikes and lost one in the thick weeds. But the weather changed and the wind pick up with strong gusts, making high waves and the bites stopped. It was a short trip as the high waves started splashing water into the boat so I decided to finish after 3 hours. It was short but successful thanks to the early bites.
