Any tips on what depths or possible locations of some decent pike? It seems like i can find accidental bass where ever i go, but i still havn't figured out pike. Any suggestions, or tactics would be much appreciated

If you promise to cpr, try upper red lake... it doesnt get any better. For tactics, go to the upper red lake forum, and search back a year or two in the april - June months and you will find plenty of info.

They even have a gator contest (I think it's in july)...

If you're staying in town I would find some lakes that won't be to crowded.

1. Big Marine

2. Lake Elmo

If you want to fight some crowds, try South Center.

Fishing pike is easy. Troll 14 - 17 feet with a large minnow bait.

Good Luck. grin.gif

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
