A loved one truly needs help
Very encouraging news on the pike. Last year I hammered them no problem, this year only two small ones. Probably need to change my strategy and fishing spots till I get them dialed in again. May make a solo trip this weekend and see what I can do. Lots of fun either way.
I have done well catching pike the few times I've been out before river shot back up. Was fishing back bays and casting shorelines with a $ 2.00 silver spoon and occasionally a big white muskie bucktail. Had one nice muskie on a couple weeks ago,or it was a giant pike but pretty sure it was a muskie. Had 2 last year 42, 37 inches. I Have definitely seen a bounce back of pike which is nice to see. And seems like the Muskie have been reproducing naturally,cause I don't think they have stocked any for awhile. Let's keep the pike fishing good by letting the bigger ones go to keep the population strong again. My biggest so far was a fat 35 incher thats still swimming.
We had a die off of pike a few years back and they are just coming around. Lots are in the 18-22 range but with all the bait in the river, they will come back strong. Don't overlook Poygan and Butte Des Morts for bigger ones.
Yesterday, june 21, 5:00am until 7:00am caught about 40 white bass, two walleye and a nice fat cat by ripping minnows on a wolf river rig w/blue fly off the end of the rock wall with Bob owner of red banks and friend Carl. Carl had a big northern on two. Thank you Bob!
After work caught a few white bass off the dock plus two more big cats and this huge sheepshead. Fun day on the wolf.
What a tough bite. Set up near the rock wall, had lines in the water around 3:30 packed up around 11:30 lost a pig about 10pm. Hammered a 10" sucker. Fought him for 5minutes and he wrapped himself around a log. Guess thats why it's called fishing and not catching.
