Wilkins

18 posts in this topic

I drilled a 40" pike on Wilkins last night.

It weighed around 20# lbs.

It was a monster for sure.I had just got my new 6'6" ml Grandt and wanted some action.

The bass & smaller pike had been abundandt so we set out for some action.Working just off the cabbage edges I get this small hammerhandle when all of a sudden my rod starts bending in a huge arc. Well then this monster pike swim from under the boat with my 14" pike in it's mouth.

As I'm fighting it it let's go of the pikey about8 feet from the boat. As i'm reeling in the turd he hammers it again.It's not letting go for nothing. So after about 3 runs it comes by the boat & dude nets it.It was 40" and it was around 20 lbs.

I thought we had video but the freakin batteries died on the previou 6 videos of bass.

We got home & were so bummed when it was not on the chip.It was awesome the way it flaired up when it hit that hammer handle on the second go around.

no eyes but 10 bass & a bunch of pike with some rockies mixed in made it a fun time & I do love my new rod.

Good job CK. I caught ine that was 38" memorial weekend. I was fishing for sunnies with a small flu-flu in the weeds.It was on that weedy lake you do not like to fish. I will e-mail it to you since I do not know how to post it.

I'll put it up for you.

I just get frustrated with the weeds over there,not to say it does not have fish in it.

I guess set up with a buzz bait I'd be ok.

Would that weedy lake be any where near the one I took my username from?? We were on a lake known for northerns and bass last weekend, but the wind wouldn't let me troll to well, so we gave it up. Had only 1 hit on a spoon.

You really know how to.....nevermind, it's not worth it.

Why don't you go find the Walleyes and 13" Crappies on Fleming?

Its been a while since there have been any 13 inch crappies on Fleming. I'll be up this thurs eve. I'll be checking out the indian names and can any body give me directions to round lake. The small round lake with the church camp on it. I was there a few years ago and my memory is a little foggy accept that if a could drive the old train track bed I could get there.

Thanks, I was never to sure that I could drive on the grade. I thought it was just for atv use. I will certainly take it if that is ok. It will be a lot quicker to get to Palisade to.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
