PIKE BITE

8 posts in this topic

I am just curious if anyone has found a hot pike bite in the metro area. I am mostly looking to target the east and northeastern suburb lakes. Any info would be great

The pike have been curiously absent on the lakes I've been hitting the last two weeks. When they have been around they've been nipping & hitting short rather than their normal crushing assaults. I'm going to blame it on the weather & turnover. Can't be the fisherman. tongue.gif

I would agree, it is never the fisherman

Was out on Lake Marion in Lakeville a few days ago, the fishing was extremly slow. Caught on pike that went 32 inches. The fish was extremly lethargic, I didn't even think that I had a fish on until it got to the surface. Not a typical northern. I'm guessing that the turnover is still affecting them.

Max - I think a couple of weeks ago they were all scared off by the loud splash... grin.gif

jwhjr, think that would have been three large splashes - you, lakevillemarine, & the canoe. Oh, to have had the camera! Or better yet a camcorder!

Robert, aka "Bass King", were you fishing with a couple of kids on a very windy day? I think I saw you and hear all the joyful screaming. I said to my partner, that's cool the kids got to see that fish. You are right about the bite on Marion, very slow. About a week earlier, I caught a nice size pike in that same area.

Caster,

Sorry that wasn't me. I was by myself in a red Lund
