If you had to pick one lake.........

18 posts in this topic

if you had to pick one lake for great population for pike, what lake would that be. Also, what lake would have the best population, that is a clear lake.

Any information would be great. Thanks again

Dude, as you know ice is never safe... I am not aware of any springs... However, because of the lake and the number of points and such, it does at times have ice ridges... but then agian, what lake doesnt?

Someone already said big marine (which was going to be my choice). White bear is clear and has lot's of pike. My very first fish through the ice was a pike out of there grin.gif Many years ago of course.

Bass I know your looking for a lake to spear-- If I were spearingg around Annandale, My choices would be Clearwater, Scott and Betsy. Clearwater, people are always getting nice pike out there spearing. Scott and Betsy are known for a 20lb every year. Not big known lakes, but they hold some nice fish

For big Pike I would go to the creek that runs out of the dam on Peltier at Centerville. Park your care in the lot next to the boat landing and walk down to the creek. Throw a sucker in and fish with a slip bobber. Good size Pike up to the dam in the creek. Also big crappies and bass. Tight Lines!

Uncle, we did that once on Christmas Eve day. Open water fishing and caught a couple pike. You could see them cruise by every once in while, and it was pretty fun smile.gif Have bro-in-law that lives right near there, and we all had a blast.

Bald Eagle. All the way. I little bit of everything. sunnies and crappies off the dock for the little one and the better half, and bass and 'skis out in the boat for me. When the little ones want to go with out on the lake, I can run to the north end of the lake and get a pontoon and not worry about someone going over.

Definitely tonka. Nowhere else in the metro I can consistently catch 10lb + pike

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report
