August is a good time to land a big fish
By Bill Bartusek
Warm weather is here and it's August. That means big fish time. I say that because in all my years of fishing, I've seen a lot of big fish caught during August.
I'm not exactly sure why these big fish start to show up at this time of year. And it's not just one species either. Pike, bass and big walleye have all been in the picture during this month. Big pike start hitting in the shallower water, where you couldn't find them in July. Why they leave deep water. I'm not sure. Walleyes too, especially big ones, start sneaking around in shallower water.
