The numbers game

I'm not much of a morning angler. Till today, I still find it hard getting up early in the morning, even if it's fishing. And, that's why I love to do my fishing in the evening instead. Yesterday's outing has been one of the most productive since the season began. I had eight fish in total of mostly pike and some perch. Well, it was one of those numbers outing.

One of the small perch on a 1/8 oz single willow spinnerbait.

A spot by the river I used to fish regularly in those early days...

Although the wind picked up later in the evening, the fishing wasn't affected by a great deal. It was one of those days that if you'd picked the right spot, all you have to do is grind and you'll be awarded. It was just as simple as that. In fact, I pulled up about 5 pike from just one small weed bed alone.

The crime scene. Wonder who or what did that?

Well, no outing would be complete without a surprise. This time, I found a the bones of a dead pike in some bushes by the bank. The fish appeared to have been filleted as what was left were the head, spine and tail. From how the bones were laid, it could have been the work of a human. Wonder who did that?
