Illinois Smallmouth guide Jonn Graham sent us this image of him with this local pike caught on a Dally’s Lap Dancer streamer.
Jonn tied up a monster version of the Lap Dancer with a 4/0 rear hook and 6/0 front hook.
Caught it in a ditch off the IL River………….secret spot you might say. Did not measure the fish but it is a very respectable sized pike for IL waters. Caught five others and one muskie……………..the lap dancer caught them all.
You might remember Jonn writing in back in Spring about tying the smaller version of the fly the “Tiny Dancer” for his local smallies.
