Looking for Pike

Recommended Posts

Wiskers

Hey fellas, I am looking for some water where I can find a few nice pike for pickling. My pickled fish supply is gone and I would like some pointers on where would be a good area to find some. I know not a whole lot of fellas target them but if you know a good spot I sure would appreciate the tip. Perhaps Florida or Kandi? Not femilure with either lake.

I know during the summer time we always could catch pike up at Camp Lake near Swift Falls. It is a small lake as well so it is easy to get out there and try different spots.

out at Games Lake about third of way from campgrounds to Little Norway creek try 8 to 10 feet of water in weeds.

We have always had good luck in winter from now to seasons end and a pretty good perch bite goes along with it.

Line up in front of third to 5th cabin ,you will be 300 to 400 feet out from shore to find the weed bed and it is about 600 feet long.

there is a 1 foot drop off on a clay ledge on what would be inside of weeds .

If you get on clay ledge [you might find some walleyes]for norherns just a few feet deeper.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      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)

      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
