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

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
