Hey Gissert, Any idea on the ice thickness on S.T.? Wondering when my shack can be opened up for beer drinking. I haven't been able to break away for a weekend to check things out. Thanks in advance. wink.gif

There was about 7 inches out there last weekend, with some water on the ice. As of Friday, I had the place to myself. Saturday there was a handful of protables/wheelers out there.

I expect the perm shacks will show up soon. The road was not plowed down to the lake, so the snow was pretty deep at the bottom of the hill.

Alright thanks, with the cold weather coming in I should be able to get my house out next weekend. Snow must be waying the ice down. I am guessing thats where all the water on the ice is coming from?

Hey der Gissert. The true "Ranger" is coming up to fish for the week after Christmas. Toss me an email. I'd like my Dad to toss a few fish in the bucket along with his empties.

You should be ok now. Last weekend there was a solid foot where I was, but LOTS of slush in spots.

No vehicles yet, just wheelers and sleds.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!
    • Wanderer
      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
