Yup....

Good Luck!

Ken

p.s. when all the above fail, throw out a crappie jig on a bobber... those Red Lake pike love 1/16th oz. jigs and fatheads....

You could try one, but I bet the DNR wouldn't like to see your tackle box?

All I was stating was the above mentioned pike tatics all work on Red, some better at certain times, some worse at certain times... but the venerable crappie jig always seems to bring in the pike! grin.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
