What lake? I'm in Moundsview so I like hearing about visibility nearby. Struggling to find clear water this year. Poor visibility on Forest, Clear, Centerville so far. WBL has good visibility. But I hate spearing on muskie lakes. Plus, WBL doesn't have big pike per surveys.
The Sheriff issued the permit yesterday - it’s on for next weekend as scheduled! 18 inches of good, consistent, clear ice over a 2 mile swath of Gull/Hole in the Day Bay.
We’ll be out for our 3rd year, our 2nd staying on the lake. Looking to make the Leader Board this year! Haha!
I’m planning on doing a little scouting this weekend for our overnight spot. I’ll report on ice conditions at least. Can’t say too much about the fish!
So I don't usually fish for pike often with tip ups and I'm just wondering if dead suckers work well? All of mine died literally after 1 day and it seems a shame just to toss them away, especially when they cost $6.50/dozen
