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.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
