Post Alcona DAM Pond

Remove this ad.....
become a Supporting Member today.
Heading up to that DAM pond again for a family fishing trip as my gramp has a cabin in Curtsiville. We caught a few pike and bass last year but pretty bad for 4 boats out. This is different fishing than i am used to and looking for any tips. One i learned is there are tree tops in 30fow 3" below the surface. I think we may try some jigging as not much of my other tactics have worked. More into salmon these days so u guys prob dont know me much, lucky dogs. Heading up thurs night til sunday, prob in the rain PM's welcome. Thanks in advance

Default alcona pond

Panfish are starting to hit very well if you are into those.

Ended up with 5 pike, 29" was biggest on 6/19 and a few small smallies. Best was about 30 fow trolling cranks. Also managedd to hook my uncle in his earlobe with a spinner. Had to perform surgery on a windy day with too many beverages. Only fished the pond that day. Trout fished Ausable and another small creek rest of weekend. Managed to pull about 8 or 9 of 30-35 hookups. Only 2 keepers, lost some nice fish spitting hooks and breaking lines. Gramps and uncles fished Loud and Five Channel Dam ponds with poor results. All in all a great trip with the fam. 10 guys for 4 days in a 20' x 24' cabin made for a riot with lots of beverages, cards, wildgame feasts and severe harassment

They are getting some excellent panfish off the park office area, near the dam on the western side and also near the small island in the pond
