Leaving for the family resort (kitchi landing) on wed (8-08-07). Wanting to know the hotspots for LMB and pike. We plan on spending time on Kitchi, walker's bay, turtle river, little and big rice. Might get out to cass when my buddy visits. Thanks

Lots of small pike in Kitchi in the reeds on the far eastern shoreline bay. We use the plain silver No. 3 Mepps and have pretty good luck in there in June. I suppose in this heat you need to fish it early or late as I think they are in deeper water during the day.

If I was staying on Kitchi, I'd definitely try the shoreline reeds on the far NW shore/bay too and I'd try to get up to BigRice for LMB - never been there but have heard several diff guys suggest it for LMB because they say it has lots of hawgs.

For Pike, definitely fish around the deepest water in the basin. The cabbage and lilly pads on the NW corner of Kitchi is good. And the whole eastern side of Walker Bay... especially where the dropoff runs right up next to shore... should be good. Might need to fish some crankbaits or plastics to get down there to the fish during the day, but they should be there.

For Bass, kind of the same story, but in shallower. I've always done best in Kitchi/Walker Bay in the reeds and slop closest to some deeper water. Early morning/Evening... throw weedless topwater plastic type baits in the pockets of the heaviest cover. Hard to imagine they've got room to swim in there, but that's where I've found them. Good luck... and let us know how you do!

Thanks guys. I am hoping to get to big this year. Last year a mud bog drifted into the turtle river opening and closed big off. Yeah we (fiance) can't wait to see the family up there. Her family owns kitchi landing. Hope to pull a hawggg!!!

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
