I imagine everyone is getting pretty sick of winter. I know I am, and I like winter. There is more snow than I have ever seen before. There is too much to even think about going on a snowmobile, unless you are looking for a hard workout after getting stuck in 4 feet of snow!
Our 2014 season is looking like it is going to be busy! Our dates are booking up and there is only a handful of June and July dates left. Here are a couple of prime dates and what you can expect while fishing during that time of year.
We recently had a couple of cancellations in the sought after middle of June! These dates won’t last long. This time of year is when the temperatures are in the 70’s and 80’s, walleyes are on every windy shoreline and wind blown bay, seemingly everywhere. Trophy pike have moved slightly out from the weedy bays, still nearby to feed in the early morning and late in the evening on those tasty walleyes. Most likely your biggest pike will be caught while walleye fishing midday on a jig. Honestly thats how the majority of the biggest pike are caught, while walleye fishing. Fish at this time of year generally are situated in 10-12 feet of water, although it is very beneficial to bring a portable depth finder with you at anytime of year to be sure you are in the right depth to catch the most fish you possibly can. A simple tackle box is all that is required to catch hundreds of fish! Half a dozen Jigs of various colors (pink, yellow, white, orange, black, blue) in 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 oz, powerbait, lindy rigs, a few rapallas, a few spoons for casting is all you need. Bait is not necessary but you will catch more fish while using it than without. Night crawlers are a very easy to look after and durable bait. Leeches also work well at this time of year. If you need any assistance or would like us to arrange your bait for you please let us know at least a month prior to your trip.
