Best opener I have ever had, I almost forgot there was fish like this in the metro area.

We got 9 northerns all together, nothing less than 6lbs, biggest was 12. Bunch of bass also, nothing huge. Found them very shallow in weeds, spinnerbaits and sucker minnows both worked.

The only monsters I see there are those hula hoops hanging from your ears!!

But seriously, those are some nice slimers.

Are you sure that lake is in the Metro area?? It is hard to imangine a Metro lake having no boats in the backgroud on opening weekend...

Was about 10 boats on the lake, but not in the area we were in. Not a very popular well known lake, borderline metro area. And by the way, the hoola hoops in the ears is my friend not me!

i didnt think my head was that disproportional to my body!!! now i feel bad. fish was 40" and extremely thick. we didnt weight it because i had read that hanging a large fish by its head can permanently damage the fish's spine or kill it. it hit the first cast of the trip with a jig and minnow in 18'. it isnt a metro pike, but it was in minnesota.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
