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

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.
