Pike comming back up????

Recommended Posts

Anyone noticed if the big females are comming back up yet? It is mid september after all. Deep pike and I did not get along this summer so hopefully this fall will see my luck turn around.

No locations or techniques needed, just wondering what is going.

They are starting to show themselves, I cant get em when they are deep either. Will get better still, but I think they have started to move already.

I don't know what you guys call "big" but I fished a deep clear lake last weekend and the northerns were moved up. We had two that maxxed out our 10# scale and four more that were between 6lbs and 9lbs. All of them came from flats or just off of them in 5-10ft of water while we were fishing bass.

We beat the tar out of em a few weeks ago on my favorite pike lake on the Iron Range. The lake has huge cabbage flats and they were all over in the weeds. We got about a dozen in the 8-15lb range, 2 18s, and lost one that was easily over 20, all in one day. It's definitely that magic time of year!!!

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
