Water level is up a few inches and the new rainfall should keep it moving in a positive dirrection. Temp has been 51-54 degrees from bay to main lake.

Muskie and pike are feeding on the balls of baifish staging to spawn in a few weeks. Look for the pods of bait on steep breaks and the big fish are right on them. Here are some fish we boated recently casting and trolling for esox. The real big one cam from URL.

Brian,

If you don't mind helping out, what tactics are you using this time of year for those pike? What structure, depth, lure types, presentations are working best now?

Gregg,

We are fishing remaining green weeds and steep breaks with bait-fish on them. Baits of choice are bulldawgs and cranks...some nice slow gliders work good too. Some of the fish have also been caught trolling shallow running cranks over weeds and on the breaks too.

Hope this helps you out!

Sounds like some summer tactics I have been using. Have you slowed down the trolling speed, or are you still moving more than 2 mph? I'm guessing in-line spinners are not doing so well now.
