It was a real nice day to be out. Not too hot or humid and little to no wind. I know that the fishing gurus always say that wind is better for fishing, but personally I love it when the lake is glass. It makes it so much easier to keep your boat where you want it and fish the areas you intend to fish. It seems like most days I have fished this year, I've been fighting wind. It's nice to get a break from it once in a while.
71° - 75° F
Spoonplug. The ramp on the east was smooth, no problems unloading or loading my deep V 175. Also made it through to East loon with plenty of clearance. Fishing was much better on West, especially in and around (not on) the north docks .
By the way,what is the condition of the launch ramp? Last I heard it was is poor condition with a big hole in it. Thanks.
As far as northerns go... usually where you find weeds, you'll find pike. Particularly the deep weed edges as we progress into summer. I usually fish spinnerbaits and crankbaits when targeting pike at this time of year, though I often pick them up worm fishing for bass too. As suggested, fish the deep weeds with spinners, crankbaits and even perhaps swimbaits and spoons too. You might end up catching a nice bass, musky or maybe even a walleye while you are at it.
