Looking for Pike

6 posts in this topic

Hey fellas, I am looking for some water where I can find a few nice pike for pickling. My pickled fish supply is gone and I would like some pointers on where would be a good area to find some. I know not a whole lot of fellas target them but if you know a good spot I sure would appreciate the tip. Perhaps Florida or Kandi? Not femilure with either lake.

I know during the summer time we always could catch pike up at Camp Lake near Swift Falls. It is a small lake as well so it is easy to get out there and try different spots.

out at Games Lake about third of way from campgrounds to Little Norway creek try 8 to 10 feet of water in weeds.

We have always had good luck in winter from now to seasons end and a pretty good perch bite goes along with it.

Line up in front of third to 5th cabin ,you will be 300 to 400 feet out from shore to find the weed bed and it is about 600 feet long.

there is a 1 foot drop off on a clay ledge on what would be inside of weeds .

If you get on clay ledge [you might find some walleyes]for norherns just a few feet deeper.

      This weeks warm weather should have the panfish starting to push shallow. Hit a spot for a few min this afternoon.... Not the biggest fish by any means... but a start to open water it is

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.
