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'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?

      Crazy birds!  Seen 2 jakes that would putt and cut like hens, a little deeper sound of course, and would talk back to me and Abi.  The Tom was absolutely quiet and disinterested.   Been along time since birds were this quiet.  Tough to make moves.  Probably just better to sit tight and wait.   Good luck.
