It was down on the bottom. I was using clousers and counting them down. It hit all the way out and all the way down. It's easy to tell how far you cast where I was fishing. The Railroad bridge has 30' sections with a crossed set of beams in the middle. It's a pretty good set of markers every 15'. I just look up and see where I'm standing under the section and you can count from there.

I put the cast right up against the piling, but I figure that by the time it sank I lost at good 10'. I don't think I stripped 2' back when it nailed it. I was sure I had a big Walleye for a bit. It did a fairly good imitation of one at first. Then it did a good run and I knew, "nope, Pike." One of these days I am going to get a Mooneye behind the piling in the slack water. Tiny dry fly and a cast of at least 145'. I had the chance once and these two boats saw the fish raising, and me casting to them. They pulled anchor and dropped right in the middle of them.
