After a tough week of fishing at Makokibatan Lodge due to weather and a long mayfly hatch, the fishing has started to pick up again. Last week saw much nicer fishing conditions with many days of sun, and little wind. Guests were picking fish up at either end of the lake around the rivers, with a few fish being caught on Rogers Reef and Sand Point.
Last week’s hot baits were jig tipped with either a worm or the new Berkley Gulp Alive leech. Pike have been slow lately as no one has really been fishing for them, but they were still being caught while fishing for Walleye.
We had four people take a river trip for brookies. Five brookies were caught with the largest being 19 inches. All were caught dragging a jig along the bottom of the holes in the river.
Weather for the next week looks nice; sunny and hot with temperatures reaching 30C. No rain until Friday.
Happy fishing everyone!
