Jonah,

How would we contact your father? (I may be interested too...) You can post here or send to my email address (you should still have it).

Thanks!

I'd recommend Dick Winter. I've used his services on a couple of occasions. I don't know that you'll find anyone who knows that area better.

I would give Jason Durham a call. He has lived in the area his whole life, and he is a great guy to go fishing with.

Brad and Jonah (and everybody else that posts), it would be very helpful to us "out-of-towners" if you could some how post the phone number or email address or HOW to contact your recommended guides. Yellow Pages? They also work at ____ (i.e. Delaney's, Northern, etc.).

Anything would help.

THANKS!

Bob,

Hows it going? Jason has a flyer up in Delaneys, I am not sure what his contact info is off the top of my head here but another thing you could do is post to him on this website, he comes on this site all the time. So there is a start and Ii will see what other info I can get for you.

Thanks Brad. Will be there for a week (9/9-16) and am HOPING that I won't NEED a guide. wink.gif

But, if it's SLOW for the first few days, I may start looking for some help!! I'll keep Jason and Jonah's dad (Dick) in mind.

<29 days and counting!!>

Not trying to deter you from Jonah, we know each other well. You'll have a good time no matter which guide in the area you choose.-Jason

i would defiantly recommend Jason Durham. He is a great guy and a phenominal fisherman, earlier this year he put me and my brother and cousin on five eyes all about 5 lbs in a very short period of time. He knows his stuff... Its a great experience that ill always remember

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      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
    • Bigfatbert
      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 ..
