Plan on visiting deer camp and fishing the bays this weekend. Hoping to find some fish. Smallies , pike or walleye. Doesn't matter ready for what ever is biting. Any one been out. Any info would be helpful. My son has a couple days off from school. Trying to make the best of his time off. I'll let you know how we do after the weekend. Tight lines

Fished Friday-Sunday near reefs 2 and 3 with crawler harnesses and caught 15 walleyes although 12 were small. Funny thing is we picked up 2 suckers and whatever this was....we were guessing a buffalo, but it's scales are too pretty for a buffalo. Any ideas? All the fish were caught deep in 24-30' while battling 10-20 mph winds.

Today's conditions are screaming "big pike time!" Overcast, south wind, falling barometer and water temps. I know if I was feeling better, that's what I'd be doing, right now. Find yourself a good weed bed and start trolling some big, musky sized spinners or crankbaits. This is one of the best times of the year for a shot at a 40+ inch slimer!
Speaking of big slimers, my dad put his good friend Max Hurd on this 41 inch pike back in September. His biggest one ever! Got it on a sucker minnow under a slip bobber in the Escanaba harbor. After a few quick pics, it was released.
Nice one, Max!
