Will be there on the 2`nd as well as the 9`th...It will be a blast!! I have been to the island the last couple of days to try for some carp...saw lotsa carp, and some pike, but I couldn`t hook into a carp at all...But will be back next week for some more carp`in...gotta learn sometime!
All Marina`s are Private...we are gonna try and sneek in in the beginning of may when there arn`t many boats in yet, but am sure will be promtly asked to leave...we will see. But if you are on a boat, you can certainly throw in there, I see it all the time.
We used to hop the fence to fish the "Private" area. As long as you are not disturbing the peace you'll be fine. We had a couple guys we'd see each time and they shared their beer with us - but you will come across the odd person who will want you to leave immediately. Make sure you don't leave any mess behind, ore even better, keep a plastic bag and pick p garbage near the shore and they'll love you!
I may have to try one of those jigs Sike, sounds like t could be deadly for inactive pike!
