Fishing at Mim is still red hot on all three fronts of northern pike, walleye and brook trout. As this is the last week of brook trout season, we will see brightly coloured fish staging to spawn. Past catches of sheer numbers of northern pike are indicating they are starting to feed up for winter and this behaviour should ramp up as we head toward the fall of the year. The walleye mine is the hot spot spot of the week, bringing in 4 pike over 40 inches this past week! Wottom Bay saw a nice 28 inch walleye caught and released–in 36 feet of water. Water temperature is steady at 61F. Fish are being caught between 7 and 20 ft. And the walleye fishing remains stellar on jigs and hot’n’tots. As the water starts to cool off, you’ll see aquatic vegetation start to die off. Search out bright green “live” weeds to locate northern pike. Green weed = increased oxygen – Brown weed = decreased oxygen. Fish will vacate areas of die off.
