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...

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
