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

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      yesturday we were about 1/2 mile below the sartell dam and 4 jet skiis headed north to the dam area. the kind that yo stand on. looked like they all had go pros on helmets and looked like they were on a mission to have some fun. would have been nice to see what they did up there.

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
