Was up at Kab over the 24th and 25th. We fished lots of weed beds searching for what seems to be the illusive pike. We were in the northwest end all around tom cod bay, south into peterson bay, and everything in the south central part of the lake. We tried casting weed beds with jerk baits, the creek channels in between weed beds with cranks, jerks, spoons, bucktails. Also spent quite a bit of time trolling all of the areas near deeper water around these weed beds. The only thing we ended up with through these areas was one mid twenty inch pike.

We picked up more pike on the edges of the reefs than anywhere else. I know that the fish are in the areas, we just couldn't seem to get them to bite. The weather was outstanding for us though so I'm not complaining one bit. Coming off the lake saturday night we also got to see a spectacular display of northern lights.

Last year the only big pike that was caught in a week trip came out of the eastern part of Irwin bay in 10-13 ft. of water. The big guy went 42" and over 17lbs.


Good Luck, tell us how it went.

Thanks for the info. Maybe things will pick up next week for us. I know it won't be for the lack of trying.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
