I would start by checking out the local bait stores they might be able to give you water quality and stuff like that I am sure that they will not tell you where they are spearing at but they should give you a awesome start on where to begin looking for pike and clear water!!!

Get on the DNR's website and look at the lake surveys for lakes in that area. You can find the types of fish, average sizes caught, water clarity, etc. very easily. When I went to school there, people speared on One Pine, though it's not very clear water. I think Birch has some nice pike in it too.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.
