Yeah. Don't sweat the 40 inch mark Brian. With the slew of 40 inch plus pike I've hauled out of Cass over the years... I've found that milestone to be overated. grin.gif

What were you doing when you caught that fatty? Trolling or casting? Just tell me it wasn't caught on a bulldawg!

I was out with Brian on Sunday, doing some trolling. He got a 46"er and I got a 38".

Hey MuskyMark, how did you guys do the rest of your trip? I took a drive to the Big lake access after I got off work that day and saw your rig there. I guess I was right with the directions grin.gif!

Good deal Rob. Nice to see you guys are still pulling them in up there.

The rest of the trip was a bust musky-wise. Outside of Cass, we hit Big (thanks for the directions), Plantan., and Little Wolf. Saw fish on all lakes but Big. Even resorted to fishing with small suckers for a while. Had a couple pickups on those, but couldn't stick the fish. One was a low 30s fish. Thought I was pulling the sucker back through the weeds... then I look down and see this little guy gnawing on the sucker! As soon as he saw the boat, he bolted.

Ended up the week catching a few big bass and some pike. Guess the little streak of weather we were in was just too good. Sunny, high skies and temps in the 40 - 60 degree range? Right at turnover time? Not good! The last night we were out on the water (Saturday), the temps started coming up at dark. By the time we got off the lake and were driving in to Bemidji (9 pm), it was 77 degrees! Weird.

All in all... still a good trip... as always. Good luck the rest of this year. Keep us posted.

Mark

That pike looks bigger than that. I guess it's good photgraphy. Nice fish.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Why don't you take the free Dewalt I offered you....no more worries about not enough power...lol :-)

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
