As a gift for my birthday, The family paid to fly me out to the prairies for a 10 day fishing trip. What a fantastic time with my family. Then there was the fishing. Never hit the water for more than 4-5 hours each day, yet we were catching 50-120 fish per session. The tactics were simple. Baitholders with leeches, and our worm harnesses tipped with worm, leech or minnow.  Minnow and ball jigs , with a sickle hook or casting jigs tipped with twisters or paddle tales.

  The fish were insane. Walleye out there were fighters, not dead weight.  Pike were a lot thicker across the back as compared to pike in southern Ontario.

When fishing is hot, you get good sense of what lures work and what doesn't. I would not have even bothered with bait,  unless for the kids yes. Good time to hone those working the jig skills.

The days are warm to hot, but dry, and the nights are nice and cool. We had a fair amount of rain, but it was overnight into the morning,and done by 8. That left the rest of the day for fishing.  We did have one  bad day. Cold front and too windy to launch the boat, so we were onshore with only a handful caught.

What lake were you on?  I fished Tobin lake in Saskatchewan about 10 years ago.  Some of the largest pike I have ever caught.  Looks like you had an awesome time!  Great pics.

Actually we were fishing a group of smaller lakes about 1 1/2 hrs from Tobin and a 1/2 hr off the #16. Biggest was Fishing L.
