Imagine three out of four members of Michigan’s Mark Fell Party, claiming big Pike Master Angler status. Imagination became reality last Monday and Tuesday out at ZigZag Lake. Bob Fisher and Matt Fill with their Hot-n-Tots, and Rod Frost with a #4 Mepps Bucktail all caught and released 40 inch plus Pike. They reported Walleye fishing as good, with the largest being 24 inches.
Over at D’Alton Lake, the Schwake Party hit a Walleye treasure chest, when Dustin caught two 26 inchers, both on pink and white jigs, and his dad Ken, with the same lure also scored his own 26 inch trophy. David Hanson recorded daily back-to-back 27 and 27.5 inch Walleyes as well.
All of our trophies came on August 25 and 26. From a Lunar Table viewpoint right on the quarter moon, traditionally the lowest feeding activity days of the rotating cycle. Go figure. I have more details in my podcast, listen now.
