Mid-June Pike?

3 posts in this topic

Greetings,

Anyone out there willing to give a little advice on mid to late June pike fishing? We were up last year and stayed towards the east end on the American side and were surprised we did not see any pike. No need to give up any secret spots, just general tactics would be appreciated.

HI G.P.,

THE BEST TIME TO CATCH BIG PIKE IN RAINY, IS AS SOON AS THE ICE LEAVES THE LAKE. FISHING IN THE SHALLOW BAYS, SUCH AS DOVE BAY CAN BE AWESOME., AS THE LAKE HEATS UP, YOU WILL STILL FIND THEM IN THE CABBAGE, OR MOVING OUT INTO DEEPER WATER. HOPE THIS HELPS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMIESTER

Hey fish, thanks for the reply. Any mid June pike tactics you like for fishing around the islands in the Kawawia Island area? That is where we are going to be staying. Thanks.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
