Our good friend Jeff Wood had a chance to get our with his brother Brad near shore on Lake Erie to see of pike or crappie where feeding in the shallows.
The pike and panfish didn’t cooperate but the Freshwater Drum and Longnose Gar did. Jeff was catching both just fishing a jig/plastic grub near the bottom in 20′ of water. The nice thing about fishing Lake Erie this year is that even in shallower water you never know what you’re going to hook. It could be a big channel catfish, a walleye, jumbo perch and other species!
