My wife, father and I went up to Lake Champlain for a fishing charter to search for Northern Pike this past weekend. The action was intense and furious, with us catching 59 fish in 8 hours, and a few more throwing the lure near the boat. Of those, probably 40 were pike, 15 were pickerel or hybrid, and the rest were smaller bass.

This was our second charter of the year with Captain Mickey Maynard, and I highly recommend him. It's just so nice to be able to show up with nothing but a very small and fair amount of money, fish with premium tackle, and come back with great memories. It was $300 for 8 hours, compared to the tourist trap pirates at Lake George who will charge you nearly double that for 5 hours on a lake that is much worse fishing. It's definitely worth the extra hour-ish drive to Plattsburgh.

You can get in touch with Captain Maynard at www.lakechamplainangler.com if you are so inclined.

A few pictures of our catches:

And her with a very nice hybrid:



It was a great time making great memories. The only problem is now I'm thinking I need to drop what I'm doing and head up with my boat this weekend to see if they don't bite like that in Crown Point as well.

Beautiful fish! I'm packing up the car already! Very Happy Thanks for the fishing charter recommendation!

BTW - How were you fishing; live bait or artificial?

All artificial, and all catch n' release, the best way to fish Smile

Edit - black or red spinner baits, large, by the way.
