Pike fest....

5 posts in this topic

I went to fannie lake in Cambridge with my brother and our kids today to see if we could catch some nice pike on tipups. We decided to have a contest to see who could catch the biggest pike. We got to the lake around noon...

Here's everyone gathering on the ice while the tipups get set up...

It didn't take long before my brother's son Ryan caught the first pike...

Soon after he caught that Ryan came through again and caught this 29" log...

While Ryan was messing around with that pike, my son Lucas gets a flag and pulls up this 27.5" pike...

The action was fast for that first hour. Here's some more pics..

Things slowed down after that first hour, but a couple hours later my daughter Genna gets a flag and pulls out the biggest pike of the day @ 29.5"!

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
