Good way to spend time

on June 16th

I went to tampier Lake to spend time with the family. At first I really didn't think I would get anything. I had my fishing pole in the water for about 2 minutes. I was tired and ready to go so I pulled my line back, it was a little heavy. I thought for a second that it got stuck but when I saw the water move I knew I had a good fish and at the end I got the fish, I wanted to take it home but I thought I should just throw it back so I did. It was really fun because in the past I went to tampier lake and I never got nothing but this time I did!

Big walleyes

on May 9th

You can find walleyes in Tampier Lake that grow up to 15lbs but they are really hard to find. You will also find nice pike, lots of catfish, and bass up to 10lbs. Try fishing the marshy area on the north side of the lake early in the season. The rest of the season you should try deep water, weed lines, and the brush cribs if you can find them. You might want to try crank baits, spinners, and soft plastics. Good luck fishing!
