Came across this on last Saturday. Just wanted to remind people when the water temp get high might be a good ides to target a different species of fish. All I could come up with it was just shy of 50 inches. What a dandy and a waste. Tight lines.
Move deeper my friend. Fish with live bait and try throwing musky baits. You will catch fewer but bigger pike.
Hey Lake-Linkers. I'm a CPR fisherman looking for big pike. I catch a ton of hammer handles up here, but have struggled to catch anything 30"+. Anyone have some advice for me, I've tried Jerkbait fishing and deep cranks along points and near weedlines. I've also fished early morning and right at dusk with spinnerbaits, rippin raps, inline spinners, swimbaits, spoons, stickbaits...again with lots of 14 to 18 inchers, but no monsters. Thanks in advance for any advice...
How are the landings holding up below the bridge ? I have a shack out hoping I can wait til the weekend.
Handle2 it has game fish and panfish and bullheads never had carp.
What does this lake all have for ruff fish? Looking for lakes with around this area with high number of carp
Had a great time at the cottage last few days, got some things done and was able to fish for awhile. Ice still not driveable in north bay yet with a truck, walked out from landing 6, once got past all the frozen ruts it was an easy walk. Checked a couple spots, nothing till I got to a crib location, had good action on the crappies and a few perch, enough for a couple meals. 16 FOW, pimple w/waxie was the only thing they wanted. Good action from 11-1, then it just stopped, assuming a northern or muskie come through and I didn't have a mark for over an hour, left at 3. Gonna get back up in two weeks for a long weekend, spend much more time on the lake! Thanks to the guys who sent me messages concerning ice thickness, tight lines!
Coming up to do a little work on the cottage Friday night and fish Saturday, just checking ice thickness top end for trucks, sin island area. Otw, I will train for the walk, LOL! Thanks, tight lines! Hope to report something, been tough going on Poygan & Bago
