6 of us will be going up in July,. This will be our 13th year. This will be our first early trip, we usually go in August. If the ice out is late and the spring is cold, the pike will be shallow. Once the bay’s get above 60F, the bigger pike will be in 10-15 feet of water off the bays. You should catch a few high 40" fish and a 50" is always a possibility. We will be at Lawrence Bay Lodge.
