Q:This summer I have moved to a small reservoir.It is about 200 yards wide and about a mile long. It is full of Northerns. I have caught a couple at about 8 lbs. a piece and a lot of smaller ones. I use a small canoe to fish in. There is a main channel that runs through it thats about 10 feet deep and to the sides there are shollows full of weeds. On more than one occasion I have paddled through these thick weedy areas and came across northerns close together and close to the surface. I am talking about 10 of them within 20 feet of each other. And when they get spooked,they splash loudly and I can see their backs and tails. Yesterday, 2 of hit the bottom of my canoe when I spooked them. But my question is, why are these northerns packing together? I thought they were solitary fish that stayed alone. I find this behavior different than what I have read of these fish. Are they hunting together? This is happening on a small river in Wisconsin.
Q:Anyone have any suggestions on rod and reels that work great for Northern Pike and Muskie fishing? I'm looking to get a new reel, possibly a Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® Classic C3 reel. Is that a good reel? I have a ugly stick rod but I don't like it, it is to bendable. I'm looking to spend $100 and under for each one.
