Flashback to April of 2006.
Back to Black Lake.
When we arrived back from our less-than-par Thursday, a few regulars on the lake shared some information that would lead to a successful last day on the lake. They told us that a ton of pike and largemouth were holding in the weedbeds in 7 to 8 feet of water, told us where we could find such structure and let us know that spinnerbaits would do the trick of keeping the weeds off long enough to get some strikes.
We set out Friday morning looking to do a re-run of Tuesday, but this time with a solid Plan B in the back pocket. After drifting the weedline at the mouth of Upper Big Bay didn't produce a hit, we quickly scrapped the pattern that had worked a few days earlier and headed up to the shallows by Davis Monument
