Last Mountain Lake – N 51° 10.189′ W 105° 18.763′
Today’s Hotspot is a shallow back bay on Last Mountain Lake. The waypoint on the screen will get you there.
Big Northern Pike spawn here and then take a bit of time to feed before moving to deep water. If you’re here and the fishing gets tough (plus your hook-up ratio goes way down due to short striking Pike), downsize your baits and most definitely add a stinger or trailer hook if possible. A slow retrieve helps put your bait right in the Pike’s mouth, ensuring a better chance of hooking up.
