Mic Mac (Tettegouche S.P.)

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for fishing Mic Mac within Tettegouche State Park from their canoes at the hike-in cabins... Buddies and I go there about once a summer (mid-summer) to fish the pike and usually end up w/ the best success (NUMBERS-wise) on spinnerbaits and buzzbaits. Seems the hammerhandles sure are eager to bite, but has anyone had success w/ the 'bigger' pike in there? We've caught multiple in there around 30" or so, and have heard rumors about great fish (38-42" ballpark) caught through the ice out there. Anyone have any ideas and/or experience as to how to get after some of the probable bigger fish out there during open water season? We tend to drift / paddle somewhat aimlessly out there as the simple depth maps from the DNR website sure don't point to any great looking, fish-attracting structure out there. Anyone w/ more success / ideas on this simple pike-perch fishery??? Thanks to all regardless...

Thanks Finn-land... We have portaged the ~600' to Nipisiquit a couple times and have had some 'medium' pike (around 25" or so) in there. Haven't tried the eyes yet though. Are there any regulations on hiking in live bait in to a state park...dead (smelt?) bait?

This is kind of a tangent but I'm curious to know what people think about using smelt from the Great Lakes on inland lakes, given the current VHS threat?

Agreed, good question thistlekicker... It WAS somewhat of the direction I was headed although I guess I also specified the "into a state park" angle...

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
