Hey just wondering if anyone has been out to the pits yet this year, I was out last tuesday and all I could catch were small crappies, literally one after another at almost every spot I tried....My real question is....why does it seem like there is nothing with any size in there anymore... when I first started fishing there back in the early to mid nineties(best friend lives on the lake) it was fairly common to get some 10plus inch crappies and large sunfish..I don't know if it's the fishing pressure or not, anyways let me know what you think........thanks and good fishing

It's kind of a mystery why the fish are not very big any more. I don't think it's fishing pressure only because not alot of people fish it during the winter.

Although I kind of wonder whether the construction has had any or little effect on the fishing. They dug the crap out of that south pit.

I plan on giving it a try tomorrow. I'll be sure to post the results.

Any idea how thick the ice is out there?

Excellent question. I've seen some people park west end of the clinic lot. There's an entrance right there and they park just outside of the fence on the shoulder.

I also remember some people saying they park in the golf dome lot and walk across the street. Certainly not ideal if your hauling a bunch of gear out there.

good luck!

went to fish the south pit yesterday. Noticed there is a fence that runs from the parking lot all the way to the S.W. corner of the pit. Didn't feel like hoofing it down there by myself.

If anyone knows a another way of getting out there besides being flown in by helicopter let me know. Thanks

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
