Giant Pike of the Fall Frenzy

Nothing turns on the big female Pike like the changing of the seasons, especially from summer to fall when the lakes turn over.  Giant 45-50 inch plus Pike start hunting in shallow water on the reefs as the water temperatures cool off.  These giant Pike are much more aggresive this time of year.  Our guests catch more 47, 48, 49, 50 plus inch Northerns this time of year than any other time.  This is also a nice time of year to fish as the weather is more stable, fewer bugs, and the beautiful Northern Lights and fall foliage are in full effect.
