Memorial Weekend Fishing

3 posts in this topic

I stayed at the Federal Dam campground this weekend and fished leech qute a bit. We caught quite a bit of big walleyes (25.5, 23.5, 22, 20.5, 20.5, 20, 20) with only a handful of non-slot walleyes. The perch did fire up on sunday, and we managed to catch some nice crappies as well. One guy in our boat caught a 40 inch musky on a jig and 6 lb. line. I think we caught just about every species in the lake. It was a very enjoyable weekend despite only being able to keep a couple for the dinner table. With all of those big spawners in the lake as well as the extensive stocking, the lake will be gang-busters in the next couple of years.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
