Early season crappie and trophy pike?

Recommended Posts

FISHINGURU

went up to URL with a small group for the 1st time last late ice in a rental from kelly p...we did real good on some big crappies and tons of average size walleyes. we pulled in a couple stray pike and even a few perch also. i was hoping to go out with jon p to search for some trophy pike but the weather outside was terrible...you might remember us as the group of 4 with the big pile of crappies and crown royal bottles grin.gif...we had a blast and want to come up again forsure!

anyway my questions are, is the crappie and big pike bite decent early ice? or is a guy better off waiting a little while into the season or late ice? i would love to rent another shack or two from ya kelly but hopefully this time the weather is a little better so i can bounce around and search for some big pike. good or bad you'll be seein us soon!

Ya I remember you guys...actaully I rember the trash bags jingled with bottles when I hauled them out laugh.gif. Definetly a good time had by all, in fact I was just looking at some of the pictures from last winter and came across the one with one of your group holding a fish and your buddy trying to grab another rod in the background behind the Crown bottles.

As for the pike they run strong all season, normaly we have a strong first ice bite although the muddy water slowed it down a little this year...but it is only clearing up as we speak so hang on they are getting hungry.

Nope we are going to play it safe until xmas time. Most of our clients are return customers and we want them to keep coming back...

Red lake can get spooky and we just want make sure everybody stays safe and has a good trip without disaster.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
