While the rains have picked up in Western New York, it’s safe to say that this has been a very dry and hot summer. I didn’t do as much fishing because of it. But, such is life. This weekend however, my father in law Ken Fisher, his brother David Fisher, and I snuck out onto Black Creek by the Jefferson Road/Ballantyne Bridge. We had quite an experience.
Uncle David got into his first kayak fish on the second day, and played a bass right up to the boat before it got away from him. Moments later, Ken landed this redhorse sucker, which he took on a BLT fly.
I managed one pike (18 inches) on a Strike King jig, and my father in law caught another pike (22 inches) also on a BLT on the fly rod.
All in all, a good time was had by all. I think we managed to hook Uncle David on the sport.
