We're going after the big Pike. We'll be speed trolling with Barbi and Ken dolls dressed with 0000 trebles!!

I know this forum is supposed to be fun.....but its also supposed to be informative.

P.s. too much mich golden and venison, and I'd recommend staying away from my bottom.

I had really good luck this past weekend using an all gold demon tipped with a shiner. I only bought one at the bait shop on the way out, big mistake. It was getting slammed right away. Caught four quick eyes then had one snap my line right at the top of the hole. Jig gone. Nothing produced as well after that.

the purple demon is also a good 1 to use under a bobber.

Hey, Ive never been on the lake. Heading up first thing in the morning. Im just throwing out some ideas here. Seriously, I have been doing my homework and will be trying all of the above if necessary.

I do have one question and its a bit off topic but....being a LOW greenhorn, I am assuming that the auger extension is mandatory at this point in the game??

It's a hateful thing not to have enough auger. Bring the extension!

Read about a week ago that there was about 38 inches of ice. That would be an extension

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
