Mid October Nothern Pike in Lake St Francis


We headed back to Lancaster to fish lake St Francis with our boat, as we had not taken the boat out in a month. We arrived a bit after 9:00 AM, the fog was so thick we didn't want to risk the big waters. We started out fishing the Raisin River unsuccessfully until the fog cleared, then headed out across the seaway, as the Southern Side was a lot calmer. We tried a wide variety of lures, live bait, casting, and trolling, all we managed all day was a 6 LB Northern Pike on a blue and silver spoon, which seems to be the best producer in this area so far.
