Fishing was slow this afternoon and evening. The weather turned from cloudy and overcast to bright sunshine and warmer temperatures.  The first fish of the evening was a northern snakehead (see pictures below) measuring approximately 18".  It was caught on a Hula Popper topwater bait.  

Fishing slowed down considerably the rest of the day and the fish have obviously changed patterns.  They proved very difficult to locate.  

The next two fish came close together as a small largemouth took a Yum 3.5 Minnow fished with a weighted hook setup.  A nice Chain Pickerel followed close behind on a blue/white plastic worm Texas rigged.  Both of these fish were caught on weed edges accompanying deeper water.

We experienced numerous short strikes resulting in failed hookups. Baits fished included topwater baits, grass frogs, 3.5" plastic minnows, plastic worms, spinnerbaits and grubs.
