All of this rain and wind in Sask. has made the season so far a crappy one, anyone else having much luck?

I've only been out twice so far (busy with landscaping this year), but so far visibility in Sask. lakes has been terrible. Went at the end of May to one of my honey holes, viz is normally 30-40 feet and could not see the end of my gun in most places. For all I know, walleye could have been 6 feet from me and I'd never know...

Hope you Albertans are having better luck with the weather than here in Sask. Tons of more rain forcasted for the next several days, that won't help either and I was hoping to get out on Saturday...

Me and Gates went to Twin Lake a few weeks ago- We both had about 10 or 12 good Pike in the sites but didn't pull the trigger. It's illegal here and I'm not that fond of Pike. No perch up yet that we saw, and the Burbot were sleeping deep somewhere too. The vis was actually really good- it had stopped raining a few days before that.

Gates went out last week and shot a big sucker and ate it! They are good eating- better than Pike IMO.

I'd like to get out to Sask at least once this Summer.

Cheers,
Erik

Mmmm, pike - I'm desperate for my first fish fry, I'd take pike :) But I don't think I'd try sucker :)

Reminds me of a dude on YouTube that speared a carp, then ate it...Not so good - but by the sounds of it, sucker must be better than carp!

Very cool. I was up at Heritage that exact same time last year and couldn't see more than about 7-8 feet...But it was cold, windy, etc. and a very late spring - probably still in turnover.

Suckers are good eating? One of the only legal fish here - and supposedly quite clean in terms of mercury and whatnot.

Chris the ones here are really good to eat, also very easy to clean. Not like carp as far as I know. They are "junk" fish here so we can shoot them too.

Paaaronoid, I do like Pike if it's from a clean and cold lake- usually in the Spring is better. But the right fish batter (ie: Canadian Tire has excellent stuff) can make a boot taste good haha!
