Mayfly hatch!

4 posts in this topic

There was a very large mayfly hatch in Pike Bay the last two nights! tongue.gif

The Big Bay area will probably be next! Probably within the next week or two if the weather stays warm.

Cliff,

is there any rule of thumb when a bug hatch occurs on Trout Lake compared to Vermilion? We are headed into Trout Next Wednesday morning for 5 days. We will probably hit Oriniack, Pine, and Little Trout as well. I would imagine Pine probably has an earlier bug hatch due to its shallow depth.

Thanks,

WG

I doubt if Trout is even close to being warm enough for a bug hatch anytime soon.

The other lake may certainly have hatches though!

I like to use a lindy and 1/2 crawler or gold spinners and a crawler during bug hatches.

Cliff, when I mowed on Saturday afternoon, I was on the shade side of the cabin, went into the bush to grab some trash laying there, when I came out I thought the little buggers were going to carry me away. I had sprouted wings in no time flat. Later Darrell.

ps: The onions did not seem to matter later on.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
