Who said pike won't bite during a cold front and heavy wind? wink.gif

I found this gal in deeper water using a slow and steady crankbait presentation.

Sorry the pic is bad, I was by myself,it was 38 degrees, three-four foot whitecaps as the sun was just breaking the trees and I wanted that fish back in the water as soon as possible. When I had to pull the frozen cover of the boat at 4am I figured it was going to be a tough morning.

Seriously, AWESOME fish Jon! Wished I was up there doing the same thing... 3'ers and all!

You know the next person who hooks up with that pike will be a 6 year old with a snoopy rod! grin.gif

Good Luck!

Well... there is no water in the photo so I wouldn't rule out Jonny pulling the Crestliner onto the ice with Sexy truck and watching tip-ups.

Nice fish Jon!!

Ok you jokers; I have had the same haircut since the armed forces gave me that killer do in "93"...only problem is the hair part gets smaller and smaller every year. It is not very often I am spotted without my hat.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      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.
