    Default Memory Lake

    Hit Memory lake late this afternoon. Must have been 12 - 14 pop up shelters out there today. Only managed to catch a couple. Ice was about 16 inches thick.

    Was out there earlier today as well and it started to get pretty buzzy when I left one litle pike seen a decent one and a few land locks a little over an hours time

    I am going to memory lake for the first time tomorrow. My grandmother moved to anchorage from the village and has been asking me to catch her some pike so she can dry them for dry fish. I have never fished the lake before and so i was wondering what depth seems to work best in memory lake? I've never had success catching pike but im going to do my best.

    Looks for weeds. If your on top of it, your bound to catch them. If you drill and looks like a paved road underneath move on. 10-15ft of water. There's plenty to be had. Good luck!

    How about trout and char in memory? What depth and bottom type do you look for?

    Id say same. In the midst of all the pike there is, i had about 4-5 large Chars take my herring a few times. Judging from the size of my herring, they got to be at least in the mid 20"+ size. Although i have done good with trout and char with no vegetation, it just takes a little bit more patient in those areas.

    The gate is locked so you'll have to walk. I just got back and there is plenty of ice, at least 18". I don't know of any dangerous spots to stay away from.

    Find the weeds and you'll find the pike, I just got done putting today's in the pickling brine.

    Are you talking about a gate across the south access point. Can you get a 4 wheeler around it? As far as weeds are you talking about the south section of Memory or the north part of Memory.

    Does anyone have an answer to my questions? Going to go to Memory tomorrow (Friday) and would like to know a little to increase our potential for a good day on the ice. Never been there before. The access part is the most important.

    you have to walk out to the lake, find weeds I would head to the northwest flat, 6 to 10 ft of water, weeds

    Thank you and forgive my continued confusion, you must be refering to the northwest flat on the south lake rather than the north lake. Am I correct? The map I have shows what looks like two lakes with a connecting channel. The entire system is referred to as Memory Lake. Sure hope the wind goes down tomorrow.
