Opening weekend pike bite

6 posts in this topic

Judging by the reports of the ice just going out up on Red, is it safe to say the pike spawn is done now?

Also, with the cold water (colder than normal for opener?), wondering about the big girls being on the chew? Any predictions?

For myself, I'd be up for the hot tub and a big steak, but not necessarily in that order

Thinking about coming up, but just for Saturday. Wish I had more than one day....

Just ask the better half what she wanted after she dropped 15% of her bodyweight overnight. Guaranteed it didn't involve her chasin' around the kitchen at full speed, but more like somebody delivering an easy meal. wink.gif

I've fished red quite a bit for crappies during the winter, but never had the opportunity to fish it in open water, and i've been hearing alot about the pike bite up there. I'm looking at going the first weekend in june. Anybody willing to share any ideas on locations? I'm really stoked on getting up there

      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.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.
