Incredible fishing at its finest with an abundance of Pike literally caught on a variety of lures including believers buck Tails along with spoons and large Rapala worked very well. Casting into the weed beds or on the edges in depth range of 10 to 15 feet. Water temp was in the 70 to 75 degrees didn't seem to slow the down. With over 90 caught in 3 weeks it was a shooting gallery. While casting for the big ones many times bass will hit as well. Primarily the best time seems to be 4 to 8 pm and always consistent. This area south of light house in Gawa bay is great. On north side of camp dores Island is very consistent as well. It seems that any where I fished it was always productive.

The St Joseph Channel and surrounding area including the gem of gems with bays are all abundant for pike. Bucktails of literally any color Believers jointed or straight. Rapala is sure bet. Silver spoons. Cast into the shore line from a distance on a boat and follow the drop offs. With over 90 fish in 3 weeks most are 24 to 30 inches but have caught them as much as 18 pounds. They are fun as very plentiful and action all day. They seem to hit in spurts as many times catch 3 casts in a row. All caught in the 8 to 12 feet depth range and many right at the boat. From first of July til Mid August it was non stop even with temperatures of water ranging between 70 and 75 degrees. Trolling works well but I like to cast consistent to cover more area
