What a day!

Fish&Fowl

Went out for 2 1/2 hrs. this afternoon and had so much going on I could hardly keep track. Saw at least a dozen fish, including having one pike hit another and chase it off only to go nuts on my decoy and sucker minnow. Also had a very fat fish in the upper 30's come in and chase off a smaller one, which I somehow got lucky enough to get on video. Would have been a very easy shot but I all ready had a nice 37" on the ice! All other fish are still swimming.

Nice fish and pics. Noticed the small barbs on your spear. Do you have any trouble with fish getting off? I used one similar in the past, one lost fish and it was gone!! Have to say That's one pretty fish and looks like the perfect shot. Brent

Checked out your video, cool. I have had the fortune to spearfish some incredible waters in my life. I have seen (never got on video) some incredible chases, hits, and even kills while pike fishing. Pike are very in tune to eating their own. On one particular lake in the past it was the norm to have upwards of 5 fish in the hole at one time, many times 4-6 pound fish. When they scatter, you know there's a big one close. Imagine that with only four feet of water under you!! Keep the photos coming!!

Fisherking01,

Thanks for the comments. I couldn't imagine having that many fish in the hole at once!

I have always wondered if those smaller barbs were going to make it easier for fish to come off, but it hasn't been a problem. I actually think with the smaller barbs you get better penetration, and I would assume a smaller hole is made so maybe it evens out.

TDH,

We are in a neckdown over an underwater point with 9' in one end of the hole and 11' in the other (it's a 2'x6' hole.) Didn't get a weight on the fish, I'm guessing around 13 lbs.

She had about a 9" little eel pout in her stomach that was probably giving her that chunky look. I don't know if you saw the video I put on, but I wanna know what that thing was eating!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.
