"Get Hooked on New York"

Birthday trip Details
Name:Birthday trip
Created By:adamsj80
Details:Because of being swamped at work and busy with family, I haven't been on here in a bit (or out on the water for that matter. Was finally able to get some time off for my birthday. All my fishing has been from shore so I was excited to get out cause one of my buddies let me use his canoe. He had to work, but another friend, who pretty much taught me to fish, brought me out to his spot and acted as tour guide.

A lot of it was figuring out what was working, but you can't beat being out on the water. Finally we started getting some bites. My buddy got his lure ripped clean twice by a huge pickerel. Not sure if this lake has them in there, but by the size of one of them that we saw, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a pike. He continued killing it with an albino sluggo along lilies and weed structure. I was using different color senkos and a watermelon sluggo but no luck.

Once we got to deeper water, I was finally getting action. Back to back big fish with a crank with a few crappies mixed in. Was making our way back in and hit one more spot before we called it a day. Second cast, boom! Rod bends hard and I hook into a monster. About to land him and I made a rookie mistake and lost it about 2 inches from the boat. Easily 6 lbs and would've been a personal best. All in all though, a great trip and couldn't ask for a better day.

Now that my buddy said I can use the canoe whenever I want I'll be chasing that fish until the end of the season.
