Patterns Change at Makokibatan

MacArthur Hobson, Wilderness North staffFishing this past week at Makokibatan Lodge has been decent with the majority of the fishing taking place in the up stream river. Guests are catching between five and twenty Walleye a day in the river along with good numbers of Pike. Walleye are being caught using jigs while fishing the eddys and deep pools. Pike are being caught on a wide variety of spoons. The river will produce fish all day for those anglers who head there.

Makokibatan Lake has also been producing some fish on the deep shoals and weed beds, mostly early in the day. Lake fish are being caught on jigs tipped with either a live leech or the Berkley Gulp leech. Lake fish are being caught around shore lunch island and sand point in water depths of 15 to 22 ft.

Happy fishing!
