Didn't have my scale with me but I would guess its around 8 lbs. I went to set the hook and sliced my finger so I knew there was some weight there! Going back friday and sat to same lake and will have a follow up report! Fish was released.

Great looking fish, Would you believe I know where you are. Don't worry I go to Devils Lake for the Toothy slime. Great looking fish.

Yeah - people are starting to discover what a great fishery this lake is. I have been one of very few people out there for the last 3 years and now there is more pressure this year. There is even a spearhouse out there. I hope he doesn't kill too many of these beauties!

Jason looks like you have all the hot spots. I have been trying to hunt down the pike all year with no luck but a few under 5lbs. I pretty much stay around Waseca as alot of my fishing is done by myself, but i could venture away from here if you are willing to give me a couple of ideas. I will however keep you posted if I do find a good spot or two. Anything for an old friend. By the way nice talking to you again!!

      Good luck. Guys!

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
