Lake Frances is pretty good for pike in the winter

Ya, but Frances has a stunted population of pike in it so finding a big gator is gonna be tough. Another lake that would be a good choice is Tetonka or Sakatah. Lots of gators in there and the water is clear enough to spear in. Elysian has a bunch of pike in it but I am not sure about the clarity of the water out there. Just a few of the many choices in the area.

There are a few guys that spear on Clear. Not sure how clear it is but Good Luck trying to spear out there!! I will also agree that German and Jefferson have some BIG GATORS it those waters and your odds are better for spearing one!! I've jabbed a few tanks out there!!

Lkae Rhomhildts can kick out some nice pike in the winter, its past German a little ways, its really small, very deep and clear and has very little pressure for the most part. Probally not alot of big fish, but some nice onces in the 3-5 lb range.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
