Pike Bay Report

2 posts in this topic

Fished Pike Bay on Thursday and caught some nice jumbos. We fished by the Trench Area. Fish were biting in 12 fow so it was fun to watch them down there. Friday was not so nice to us so we moved to Bemidji. We went out to Grassy and fished in about 20 fow. Between 5 and 6 we caught some nice jumbos and a couple of pout. We went back the next morning and caught a few more jumbos. Then a couple of guys come and set up and caught 4 pout in about 15 minutes. Then another two guys come and catch 2 pout in about an hour. We ended up catching six pout in our group. We were the only ones fishing for perch while the others were fishing for pout. About thirty minutes before we left some youg kids set up and they were hooting and yelling when they caught their first pout. I always thought pout bit more at night.

Thanks for the report Otts, sounds like you had a good time. The pout are in the heart of their spawning right now and they will hit just about 24/7. They are one of the best predators to persue under the ice in my opinion. Many anglers are out there looking for pout to eat...I would rather have a mess of jumbo perch but the pout aren't bad. Can't beat the pouts willingness to eat and great fight!

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
