Pike fest....

5 posts in this topic

I went to fannie lake in Cambridge with my brother and our kids today to see if we could catch some nice pike on tipups. We decided to have a contest to see who could catch the biggest pike. We got to the lake around noon...

Here's everyone gathering on the ice while the tipups get set up...

It didn't take long before my brother's son Ryan caught the first pike...

Soon after he caught that Ryan came through again and caught this 29" log...

While Ryan was messing around with that pike, my son Lucas gets a flag and pulls up this 27.5" pike...

The action was fast for that first hour. Here's some more pics..

Things slowed down after that first hour, but a couple hours later my daughter Genna gets a flag and pulls out the biggest pike of the day @ 29.5"!

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
