  12. Just got off the phone with a friend who just returned from Pike. He fished from 10am-3pm with fish being caught between 1 and 3. He caught about 15 or so. Brought home a limit with one walleye. Most fish came on minnows.

    well you only have 2 options the pier or not the pier ha ha you can fish the rocks there are wing dams but it is a little walk from the pier also you have the parking lot at the dam and you can park along the road to fish the rocks my guess is that most guys right now are having best luck off of the pier but a few will do good on the rocks ( have to know good spots so you dont hang up) but thats fishing god luck my friend:)
     
  15. Most guys this time of year will be on the pier. If there is 15 guys fishing the dam, 13 will be on the pier. I haven't been out yet this year but have been surprised more fish arent being caught. This time last year, everyone was slammin them on the pier. Last year though the water seemed to be more stable in that 17-20' range, and it wasnt nearly as cold last year. Supposed to warm up end of this week-beginning of next. They should really turn on then.

    Gonna be plenty nice for those of us who have to work! Will be down Saturday!!
     
  18. might be there on Saturday but I'm also considering Willow Island. Should be good fishing this weekend about anywhere you go rain or shine!
     
  19. Probably gonna try to get over to Pike early Friday morning. Try to beat the rush with it supposed to be 60+ that day. Might even give a few creeks a try in the afternoon. Gettin the bug bad.

    I checked New Cumberland Dam today. They are running 14 feet and it is 3 degrees. I am sure it is close at Pike Island.
