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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
