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.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
