CHARLIE they do get big but they are far and few between, i caught a 43" out there last year but that was WAY unexpected. they are fun to catch through the ice no matter what have fun and yes there is a slot of 30" for pike out there which i believe is done after this year.

Horseshoe would be my bet I know of 4 caught all over 36 and all four are still swimming. But I've caught a good amount of 20-28 inchers there. havn,t been there in a couple weeks so I don't know how the bite is right now.

Madison Lake is always a great option for nice pike. Inside turns near transitions from gravel to weed growth would be worth a look.

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?

      Time to give it another go!   Anyone else out? Good luck.
