"Get Hooked on New York"

Sudbury River, Fairhaven Bay 9/1/12 Details

Details:This is my personal account from the MAFF kayak tourney. The morning was warm and humid with temps in the mid 70s and no wind. The Sudbury River was low, slow and calm; the water extremely murky. I launched and headed upstream working both banks with a black jitterbug. After a quarter of a mile or so without a single rise I switched over to an orange and bronze crankbait, then senkos in a variety of colors, all the while working my way upstream. After several hours without a hit of any kind I finally snapped on a chartreuse square lip crankbait and started trolling the weed line. After a short time I boated a nice 20" pike, my first ever. I put the crankbait back out and almost immediately hooked a 14" catfish. Things stopped after that and I started alternating between the orange spinner bait and senkos without a hit. Eventually, I had to turn around and start back downstream to get to the tournament weigh-in. On the way back I decided to just keep throwing the chartreuse crankbait working the left shore weed line. Wouldn't you know, I hooked another pike, this time a NICE one. I wrestled with it for a while before finally boating a 36 incher. I made it weigh-in with zero bass but I had the biggest fish of the day :)
