Well for me it will be a toss up between the perch rig or the J13 Rapala for the pike. Most likely it will be both with the perch rig hanging off the side of the boat while I fling away with the Rapala. Of course that is only the first cast I am sure within the next 50 casts following there will be at least 5 changes.
Good chance I'll have a tube tied on looking for largemouths the 1st time out. I pretty much haven't stopped using a tube since I first started two years ago. For those who haven't tried it, they work just as good for largemouths as they do smallies.
Toss up between J13 Chartreuse/White Rapala (Belle Isle), a teardrop with a wax worm (Harsen's Island), or a perch rig (St Clair). So much great fishing coming our way!! We are so lucky to able to fish these waters!
First through one hundred will be a one ounce Brass red eye on 12 pound mono going after Pike. Second hundred wi;ll be a 2/5 ounce silver and blue Cleo on 6 pound mono for Pike and Walleye along shore. Spring is Springing WOW. Bob
