First pike on LOTW

6 posts in this topic

Between Christmas and New Years I whacked a 38.5" Pike in 26 FOW out from Pine Island. It was a very fat and healthy looking fish. Released right away. Never caught a pike fishing on LOTW before. My dad said he saw a blip on his Marcum when my lure was halfway down from glowing it up (tiny little jig). When the bobber stop hit the bobber it kept going and went down 10". Set the hook and oh yeah - there was a fight on 6 lb test.

How common is it to catch northerns out somewhat deeper on the big pond?

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
