Hortonia Opening weekend
The lake was surprisingly busy over the weekend with bass fisherman, looked like a small club tournament was going on. I noticed that everyone was bank fishing. I spent the two days fishing deeper. I found plenty of good size largemouths in 9 to 12 feet of water on drops and around large weed clumps. Large northern pike were also mixed with the bass. I had fished jig and pigs, and stick worms. Majority of the better fish came on Jigs, smaller fish on the stick worms. Best 5 fish on Saturday was 17 lbs, Sunday easy 15lbs, all same size fish, no huge lunkers in either bag. Pike were aggressive, the best 5 pike ranged from 10 to 12 lbs over the weekend. Total fish for the 2 days was 38 bass, 12 northern pike. Lake conditions may come to a change soon as the lake is being treated for milfoil; Hortonia will be closed on June 21st for the application. Just for the record- I am 100% against such treatment on this lake.
