Pike's Bay Help?

4 posts in this topic

I get up to Pike's Bay once a year with a friend of mine and we are wondering what technics or presentations would be best to get some walleyes. We have our best luck catching fish with 1/8 once jigs and shinners but can't find the walleyes. We catch all the perch we want but we would like to get a few walleyes.

Not looking for specific spots blush.gif, just more options as to catching walleyes as we only are there for 2 days a year.

Thanks for any help... wink.gif

Scup,

It all depends on the time of the year you are here... The jig and minnow is my favorite.. I look for the drops and saddles that PB has... I find most of my fish in the 10-18 foot range in the early summer and late summer.. Just before turnover you can find fish up in the cabbage that is still producing some oxygen and as the turnover happens the walleyes will spread out and start heading to deeper water along with some staying uo shallow.. My other technique that I like is trolling cranks in the flats and along breaks.. Hope this helps...

The other technique for someone that is staying up here for a few days is to get a local guide... We have many guides in the area and most to all our very knowledgeable with PB and Cass...

Good Luck,

Beef

Hey Beef,

that was a alot of help.

I really appreciate you taking the time to give advice.

Last winter I was ready to pull the trigger and give you a call for some guiding but it did not work out.

I'm retired now and hope to book an outting with you this coming ice season.

Thanks again.

Take care and I will be in touch soon.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
