First report of spawned pikes

Hi to all

Yesterday evening I went out for a short try in the hard wind to see if pikes had become more active. It took about an hour before the first pike came up and shortly after that the pike on picture below showed up. As you can see, the pike is very thin and yes, this lady was just finished with her spawning. She dropped a few eggs in the boat to confirm this.

12 degrees in most bays should make the process just fine and most pikes will if not yet, spawn very soon. And as you might know, pikes are in serious need of inhaling food very quickly after spawning since they use most of their energy during spawn.

Hopefully, this sign will be the start of crazy after-spawn fishing where the meter pikes will be coming up frequently.
