Pike Bay report

2 posts in this topic

Got back from our family vacation at Ojibway Resort on Pike Bay.

Weather was not the best but we managed to get a lot of fish in the boat, my wife got her walleye limit for the first time in her life.

Water temp dropped from 78 deg the 1st day to 67 deg today.

Day fishing was tough due to weather and wind shifting from all the directions, mainly 15 to 20 ft breaks with leach or minnow. Any shallower than 15ft and you could not keep the pesky perch off your bait. I actually got perch at 40ft trolling with a dipsy diver shocked.gif

Evening/night bite was good to excellent the last day. The flats were good, we got a lot of fish in the boat, lost a couple of "monsters"

As others said already overall fish size was a lot smaller than past years, we managed 18 keepers (14" to 18" with 1 23.5") all week, but we landed approx 60 or 70 walleyes 13" and less which we returned immediately with our blessing to bring back their parents and get fat soon for the years to come.

Overall this was a good year for us, especially compared to last year, but there were many variables that usually don't come into considerations.

As extra trip we included a day trip to the Sucker creek chain which turned up one of the best days on my life, fishing was great and the experience unforgettable.

Sounds like you guys had a great trip! The weather has been wacky every where in MN. At least it sounds like they might have got some rain up there lately.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
