Minto for Pike?!
Posted by PhilG on Jun 16 2003
I've heard good things about Pike fishing in Minto Flats. I'm a novice Pike fisherman, but I'm well versed in many other types of freshwater fish. I put in this weekend in Nenana and ran up into Swanneck slough in the south of the Flats. Didn't catch a thing. Is this Pike water? Hearing that Pike are fished for much like Black Bass, I was throwing rattletraps, crankbaits, and spoons.
The water was very silty and fairly shallow. Am I better off going all the way (from Fairbanks) around to Minto village and put in from there? Am I okay to fish in the rivers/sloughs or should I be in an enclosed body of water like a lake? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
