We took the kids to the UP before the holiday for a long weekend of camping and walleye fishing. The UP has wonderful lakes that produce great fishing for Pike and walleye. We camped at the South Manistique rustic campground and fished Big and Little Manistique Lakes and them moved to Autrain Lake Campground on Sunday to fish Autrian Lake.
Big Manistique Lake 6/28/13: We had two boats in our party fishing all day on Friday and we never hooked a walleye. We looked deep, shallow and everywhere in between and couldn't make contact with the walleyes. The perch fishermen were doing ok on the West end of the lake fishing in 12 to 15 FOW.

Autrain Lake 7/1/13: The Mayfly hatch was in full swing when we hit the water on Sunday afternoon. We drifted the West shore to the South and caught a few nice pike. At 7pm we moved to the north and trolled from the river to the beach in 9 to 12 FOW and hooked 6 walleyes. The best bite was on Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow any color.
