Well I went out for a little while the other day and the action was slow but I speared one about 2 lbs. I threw it outside like I aways do and continued spearing. Well apparently someone else was watching because when I was packing up to leave I noticed something had been eating my dinner. I had heard some noise but I figured it was just the pike flopping around. I believe it was an eagle because I had seen one cruising the lake before. I just can't believe it came that close to the house while I was in it and my car was right there to.

that is crazy.

This is why i bring a gunny sake with and place the fish in that. That will allow me to lay it on the floor in my house, and never have to worry about it getting froze solid, and having all the slim like they do when they warm back up. To bad you didnt get a close up of the eagle. Thats a weird story.

My father threw a fish carcass out for the farm cat just last week...and just as he walked into the house...a bald eagle swooped down and took it.

I never put my speared fish outside the house. Why do I want other people to know when I am having luck? Not only is the fish there...but the blood on the ice too.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
