Metro Pike Bite

3 posts in this topic

Haven't heard or seen too much, just wondering if the early ice PIKE bite is going and if there are any hot lakes right now to ice some good eater and pickling pike.

Hey, I don't know if this will help...but maybe someone can add to this post. This fall I had a Bass tourney on Maple Lake out past Buffalo....I could no keep the Northerns off my lure! They were all 3-8 pounders too! Have not heard about the ice out there...but if you can get on that lake, I am almost positive your tip-up flag will keep you busy.

Coon lake was always a good early ice pike lake for me. The fish werent huge but you could never seem to keep the flag down. FIshed no deeper than 12 FOW.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
