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.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

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