I live in Fridley and have never heard of anyone fishing Pike Lake. It is not all that deep and is quite a small lake. I would not be surprized to see fish in it but I would think the Lake would be more aptly named "PUNY LITTLE PANFISH LAKE".

Of you are talking about the Golden Lake up hear Lexingon/Lino Lakes area it is part of the Rice Creek Chain of lakes that starts up near Peltier. It was stocked with Catfish a few years back and has panfish as well. There have been reports over the years of the occaisional Northern but I suspect those were probably just moving through Rice Creek. Golden is more of a Catfish lake now like the man says.

That's too bad about Pike lake, it seems there is always fish in these type of lakes...the ones nobody really cares about. Oh well.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
