Cant say I know the best colors, but I have been out a few times this year, no hook ups yet but have seen 3 ski's. Each one on a different color. One on a black bucktail, one on a white spinner and one nice sized ski actually tried to eat a big green with black spot (bobby bait style) lure. That fish chased it in the figure 8 a couple times but never did catch up. I dont know if any one catches many skis on the lake, I have only caught 3, and Im on my 4th season of trying, but there are some truely giant pike in there to keep you comming back.

I am not sure on what color produces the best but last Thursday I waded the river with a buddy and he almost stepped on a ski in the weeds. blush.gif I have never seen my buddy jump as high as he did. It was hilarious. grin.gif

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
