Ed Jantz and the guys from the chicago fire department visited.
Had a pretty good week.
About a dozen big pike biggest was 44 inches.
weather was perfect all week.
maybe even too nice.
Some groups in camp found good numbers of decent pike in the little to the north of camp.
Found some big pike in the little lakes in 5-8 feet of water.
The biggest pike from the main lake were in about 12-18 feet of water
near the staging area for ciscoes and whitefish which will spawn in the shallow
bays. It took a bit to find the areas that held fish. No fish bay had a produced a few but wasn't really ready. Walleye point and the islands in front of Ferret Bay held a lot of big pike and walleye. These areas continued to hold good numbers of fish right into October.
It seemed like everyday we could count at least one pike grabbing our walleye.
One day Dennis and I had 6 big pike grab walleye.
Simple orange jig 1/4 oz with a shiner produced several dozen big walleye.
spinner rigs also worked well.
Below is a video clip with 2 of
