Pike Bay report

Recommended Posts

Valv

Got back from our family vacation at Ojibway Resort on Pike Bay.

Weather was not the best but we managed to get a lot of fish in the boat, my wife got her walleye limit for the first time in her life.

Water temp dropped from 78 deg the 1st day to 67 deg today.

Day fishing was tough due to weather and wind shifting from all the directions, mainly 15 to 20 ft breaks with leach or minnow. Any shallower than 15ft and you could not keep the pesky perch off your bait. I actually got perch at 40ft trolling with a dipsy diver shocked.gif

Evening/night bite was good to excellent the last day. The flats were good, we got a lot of fish in the boat, lost a couple of "monsters"

As others said already overall fish size was a lot smaller than past years, we managed 18 keepers (14" to 18" with 1 23.5") all week, but we landed approx 60 or 70 walleyes 13" and less which we returned immediately with our blessing to bring back their parents and get fat soon for the years to come.

Overall this was a good year for us, especially compared to last year, but there were many variables that usually don't come into considerations.

As extra trip we included a day trip to the Sucker creek chain which turned up one of the best days on my life, fishing was great and the experience unforgettable.

Sounds like you guys had a great trip! The weather has been wacky every where in MN. At least it sounds like they might have got some rain up there lately.

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
