Pike can be targeted in certain areas of the Manistee River all summer long. They are an aggressive fish and prefer large streamers or crank baits. Pike are a bonus that are primarily caught on our bass trips.
What a great day on the Big Manistee! Fall colors, the tranquility of the river, good sportsmanship, and an exciting outcome. I previously wondered what the “big deal” was regarding Steelhead fishing given previous fall encounters with Salmon. Combined, all of this made this a special memory. Thanks to your knowledge of the river and fishing in general, the boating of four Steelhead that day made this a most memorable experience. I’m already looking forward to booking with you again next fall!
