Catching northern pike near Palideau Island
by Dave Samsonite
on July 2nd
Fished the northwest point of Palideau by casting spoons and bobber fishing with shiner minnows. Fish were biting well, due to recent caddis fly hatch. Lots of mayflies buzzing around and surface feeding going on. We had a dozen fish on the lines, quite a few got away but landed a few large ones. Largest was about 10-12 lbs, next biggest was 8-10 lbs. Released all fish into the water but one eating size. Typically we were bobber fishing 5-6 feet deep about 25-40 feet from shore, where the water is about 12 ft deep.
People were also catching northerns on small shiny spoons either casting or trolling through the channel on the east end of palideau island and on the north east side of Joe Dollar Bay. They were catching a lot of fish of medium size. People in the channel were catching perch on worms with bobbers.
Species Caught: Northern Pike
Weight: 10lbs, Length: 33in.
Air Temp: 76 °F Water Temp: 61 °F
