eyes, i went out ftiday by the high lines. Fished crappies from 9:00 am till 1:00 pm. Finally, they put on the feed-bag. Caught and released about 30 fish. Most were small, however, 6 were in the 12" range. Will be out there early tomorrow and give it another try. Good luck

Was out on Friday all day. Caught 5 eyes in the morning, all shorts. Fished with some of the guys on here during the day and watched them pull in some nice crappies. Stayed out till dark and caught one 19 inch eye and a mud puppy.

Auggie, was wondering how you did Friday night. Me and J. got skunked just up river from you. We had one nice strike, other than that didn't mark much.

I fished the same break yesterday morning, got one dink walleye. Fished for crappie from 8am-3pm, wasn't marking much anywhere. Went through a tank of gas trying to find fish. Got two 16" sauger, a really nice Mooneye, a little smallie and a few perch throughout the day (rule seemed to be one fish for every dozen holes.) Wound up near where we fished Friday, just out a little deeper. Finally got into some crappie around 1:30, pulled out 5 that were nice and a few dinks before I had to get home.

They were biting really light, would barely even move the tip of a noodle rod...

Will be going out this weekend...this question has probably been asked a million times already, but, is the ice safe enough to drive from the MN side to WI or vice versa in the bayport area?

I'll be out tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. most likely in the same area as usual. Stop by and say hello.

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
