Made it back from yet another awesome Nungesser Lake experience. Three days prior was the main may fly hatch. It affected the bit but didn't stop it at all. Crawlers were definitely the bait of choice during the hatch. Half of a crawler on a jig head did the trick! Leach bite was okay and the minnow bit picked up near the tail end of our trip.
Hit two walleyes over 26". Got some really nice perch. Didn't target pike this trip but did manage getting 5 to hit my walleye! Boated one of them. Big pike this trip was a 32" fatty that hit a jig and minnow.
PM me if you are heading up and want to know where I found fish.
My kids loved it and can't wait to go back. Nungesser Lake Lodge, once again, proved why they are the best place on the lake to say! Took great care of us and my young kids.
Heading up in two days!! NLL again for us. I did go at that time, weather was cold, rainy, and nasty! Fishing was awesome tho! Fish were shallow, 10 feet or less. Caught my two 40"+ pike that year while reeling in 15-16" walleye. Was able to net both at the same time.
I am taking my 3 daughters with me this year so I wanted to get into a little warmer whether. I may be hitting may flies tho so I hope the fishing is still good.
I'd go there in June again in a heartbeat! Next time I will invest into better rain gear!! I wore it every day I was there. Sometimes due to rain and other times just for warmth.
Griz, Hope you had a good time up at Nungesser this year. We are going next year but moving time from third week of August to June 16-23. I think you posted previously that you have fished it during that time frame, be interested in any tips. staying at NLL again.
