panman, can you email about where you caught the tullibees? I was out last week and only marked a couple on the flasher. I'd like to catch a few more to add to smoker. I can trade you some fish for the spot, if you're willing... thanks.

Bak --

The eyes closed so you had better focus on the crappie action.

I have caught some nice crappies a few years ago on that lake -- you might try Lida -- the guys on the site here have been talking it up, lately.

If you noticed a bunch of holes out in that area, they were probably drilled by me. How early are you talking? what's the window? That's where I've been fishing but I must not be there early enough. What kind of setup were you using? I was using a flasher/dropper rig. A small kastmaster with a size 12 geng bug dropper, 12" down, tipped with waxies. Maybe I should have ditched the flasher and used a small jig? When I saw the schools come in they were between 15-20 feet suspended.

Thanks.

      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.
