The Northern Pike bite was great last week. Lots of fish were caught including a pair of 38″ fish on Parker. Walleye fishing is still lagging behind the norm. Several nice ones were caught though including Keith’s 26″ off Parker and Merlyn’s 26.5″ off Red Lake below.
Fish were being caught anywhere from 7′ to 13′ feet deep. We haven’t had much time to fish, but the reports from guests indicate the walleye bite is still sporadic and it has been difficult to pin down a nice sized school of fish. Guests also thought night crawlers were outfishing leeches last week. We have another nice sized group in this week so we’ll see if the walleye fishing picks up.
The barge has been getting some good workouts.
The weather has been great for being in the boat, but not necessarily ideal fishing weather. Lots of warm temps, sunshine, and little wind. The kids last week decided it was warm enough for a quick dip off the Parker dock. Still a bit too cold for us, but Cosmo thinks the water feels pretty good.
