This past Saturday (05/02/2015) I fished in the GLKFS first event of the 2015 season.
Location – Lake Delevan in Wisconsin. I’ve never fished it. The water was crystal clear and you could see 20-25ft down.
Start time – 0630.
Target species – Northern Pike.
My results – I arrived and launched 35 minutes late. I missed 5 pike, and ended my day skunked of all species. All 5 follows came on a smaller black baitfish pattern of mine with my fly rod. The lures I was tossing with my baitcaster didn’t even warrant a follow. The day was not a complete loss, I did win a Backwaters Fishing Assault Hand Paddle as a raffle door prize. It was a gorgeous day to fish, and my tan lines prove it.

Sunday. I needed to stick around the house to help with some of the outside work, so, I lined up my new featherweight and Abel reel fiberglass set up and got to casting.
