So I was up fishing at Lake George tonight from shore by the dock area and this large fishing kept sticking his head out of the water and swimming on top...almost like a dolphin does...to me it looked like a salmon but I know that they wouldn't be around here...another guy docking at the moment seen it and was confused as by what it is too...any one know?

muskies have been known to stick their heads out of the water and swim around. No one knows for sure why they do this??? Don't think theres muskies in George though??? Weird! Could be a pike I guess.

We lived on George for 3 seasons and it used to be directly connected to Nest which feeds from MUSKY overflow from fisheries rearing pond on flood conditions.

So just like Green having them and 3 48 inch and larger from Nest last season its probaly a MUSKIE.

In November go out on bar below bible camp crosses with large one foot dead three days on the dashboard in a bag suckers on a green ELMER HINCKLY Jig with single blade same color and tou will have fun with 13 to 15 pound NORTHERN PIKE.

A freind of mine lived two doors down from where we lived and ice fished ,when asked how the walleye bite was he would say not so good.

In the spring when fishing was over he would show us several pictures of true catch and release walleyes.

Its truly sad that when county road was rebuilt they basically destroyed the height of water passage from Nest.

Those fish for George are now the last of a dynasty.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
