Jhammer, the freshwater drum you have in the second photo (some call it a sheepshead here in WNY, which is super confusing since there are saltwater sheepshead), they are a fun fight and voracious eaters!

I have wanted to catch a Quillback Carpsucker in the worst way. We have them here. I saw a dead one float up at the boat ramp in the Warroad end of the lake that would have dwarfed the state record. They are the coolest sucker on the planet.

They are incredible on the fly rod. Any fly that looks like a crawdad or emerald shiner works wonders! We call them sheephead around here too. (Lake Erie region)

I got mine on micro buggers. I heard that they like chironomids too.

Question to some of you warm water guys if that's cool:

How do you guys land/release pike? I've seen pics in this thread and heard about some of the larger pikes having a gnarly set of teeth that can rip your hand up if you handle it the wrong way.

Grab them from the top, behind or at the gill plates and have a good set of pliers. Just keep your hands out of the gills, you can damage them.

Was fishing bass last June and got into the walleye along a windswept rocky point. They were thick in there! Light biters unlike bass but once you set into em the larger ones fight decent enough. Definitely no trout but a worthy adversary. Average sizes were 20-27 inches. I didn't take many pics as I was fishing from my float tube.

The bass were on fire that weekend too in their pre-spawn motions. They were hitting the surface with vigor and as the wind picked up were taking large deceivers without hesitation. I lost count after 40-50. lol
