Northern Pike

Anyone know of any good areas to try tip-up fishing for big pike on Mille Lacs?

Cove bay can be good at times.

There is a deep water area just around Malone Island to the northeast of Isle Bay that is dynamite for big pike. The best way to describe where it is located is go straight out from Hunter Winfields, head east as you come out of Isle Bay and you will come to the other little bay by Johnson's Portside. Find the deep water adjacent to that bay and set tip-ups out on the drop with large suckers and shiners. You could also try above the weeds in that bay also. If you don't get pike there, you're doing something wrong.....

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Think I'll give it a try this weekend if i can get my rig through the slush pockets.

We had luck in the areas mentioned with some small decoys on the tipup.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      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?
