I apologize for the lack of blogs Last year and will try to keep current in 2012. 2011 was a good year for fishing at Union Falls and I saw many very nice fish. I saw walleyes in the 4 pound range and pike in the 8 to 10 pound range. I did hear of a 20 pound + pike caught but did not see it. We usually see at least one that big a year. I hope the kids had fun and the adults found some time to just enjoy the view. We appreciate everyone who spent time with us last year and hope to see you all in 2012. As for 2012 Bay and I went ice fishing last weekend and on Friday afternoon, he caught an 18" pike. On Saturday some friends came out fishing with us and they caught 2 perch. They were nothing to brag about. The Blake boys were also fishing and had a few flags but like all true ice fisherman they know the fun of ice fishing isn't in catching the fish. A fun time was still had by all. On Sunday we had a few minnows left so we put out 5 tip ups and hoped for the best. After a couple hours we had a flag and bay ran over to check it out. It was just a false alarm. we reset the tip up and started to walk away when another went up and this time we had a fish. After the fish ran three times and some screaming over line tangled around his little finger, Bay pulled out a 38" 16 pound pike! We took some pics weighed him and put it back in the hole to catch another day. That's the second big pike Bailey has caught, the first was 14 pounds. Nice fish, but it was more fun watching him catch it than if I caught it my self. If we go again we will let you know how we make out. Here's a couple pics of his pike along with my favorite pic from last summer. There's no fish in it, but something about it just seems peaceful. Hope to see everyone soon. Don't be shy leave a comment or two.
