Fury Flashback – Little Vermilion June 2007

We have been pretty spoiled when it comes to pike fishing. We have had the opportunity to fish some of the best pike water in the world, not once, but twice! Originally we visited Sportsman’s Lodge on Little Vermilion Lake in 2005 and we were promised big pike. Not only did we catch big pike, but we got a lot of pike. Finding fish was easy on our first trip, but in 2007 things were very different on Little Vermilion. We faced extremely cold weather and high winds at the end of May and leading into June. We battled through snow and rain early on, and by our last day of fishing the sun was shining and the weather warmed up. We didn’t catch as many fish, but we had several fish over 40 inches, and a couple that weren’t too far from 50.

This is Pikemania

Throughout many parts of North America, pike are considered a nuisance fish. Personally, I’ve always loved pike. At times they can be provoked to eat just about anything. Other times they are nearly impossible to catch and will do nothing more than lazily follow your lure around. I’ve fished for pike multiple ways, but I have yet to try to catch one on a fly. After watching this awesome video, I definitely need to give it a try!

The Bassassins Multi-Species Ice Fishing

The Bassassins have put together yet another fantastic video, this time featuring some of the most exciting multi-species ice fishing I’ve ever seen. Their run and gun approach to ice fishing paid some serious dividends last year and this video proves it. Keep up the good work guys and hopefully we can get together in the summer!

An amazing season has come to an end. Always on the hunt for adventure, fish and fun were plentiful. As much as it pains me to let this one go, open waters will soon lead the way to new challenges. What better way to celebrate this harsh but glorious winter but with a “Big Old Mix Tape”.
