10/12/11 Esox Lucius

With a full moon and overcast weather I was itchin' to get out and chase a few Muskies this afternoon. I didn't have one follow but the Pike were snapping pretty good. Not monsters but I managed six fatties between 31" and 35", all from one inside turn and of course the usual snakes too. It's a great time of year to catch Pike since the average size tends to run a little bigger and they seem to realy stack up in groups.

Water temps were still 59 degrees.

10/1/11 Kabatogama Family Trip

No Big Pike or Smallies but lots of 15"-24" 'eyes. The wind was brutal but the 'eyes stacked in the rocks in 10f.o.w. The best presentation was a 3/8 oz Jig and 4" Gulp twister tail casted shallow and snapped back to the boat. These were some HARD strikes for walleyes. What a great lake, I must go back.
