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...

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Looks like we might have walkable ice in 2 weeks
