Johhny P Monster Pike Tactics Work!

Recommended Posts

UGUIDE

JP, thanks for the tips on how to setup you pike rigs. I got 1 42" Jackfish on a tip up and that is my all-time personal best. We fished URL for two days and managed to get a couple monstor slabs too. One keeper walleye and my wife missed another pike on a tipup. We're off to LOW tomorrow. JP, thanks again for the setup tactics on rigging for big Northern Pike.

Here are some pictures of our fish and setup.

Those URL must like the taste of human flesh. Kinda of reminds me of Hanson's hand last winter after helping me with a chucky 38' pike.

Congrats on the nice pike!

I think we're even now man. I'll step up to the plate next time however.

Note to self... keep hands and fingers out of toothy critter's mouths & gills. grin.gif

BTW UGUIDE... big Congrats on the Personal Best! I've been fishing URL fairly consistantly for plenty of years now and all my big pike stories ended up with a quick snip or snap. \:\(

Well suit up with some heavy gear and fish for them bad boys for a little while during the midday blahs. You can crappie fish with one pole and still watch a tip up all in one spot. Thats one of the great things about Red.

Congrats on the nice pike. We were in one of jonny and kelly's shack about 100 yards south from you and saw the you guys pull him in. he wouldnt have had a couple red hooks in his mouth??? My twin boys were very impressed. We had another great trip this last time even without a a Monster Pike. Im going again at the end of the month to try it again.

Nice lookin' pike. The battle wound says it all. The set-up is pretty "pimp" too. Love the track system!

JP, thanks for tip #2. I had to go in with the hand to try and save the fish, he had swallowed the hook. It was hilarious to try and have my little 5'0 wife try to hold it's jaws open. She did good and did a great job on keeping the line on the tipup spooled. We were seconds a away from losing the fish a couple times but she managed to keep it all together. It was a total team effort and we just tired him out. I almost could not get him up the hole but he finally nosed up. A couple pics and he was flopping his tail to get back in the pond. The wife also suggested putting a leader on the 8# monofilement which was a good idea.

We were taking turns on who got to handle the tip up and she got the next one the next day but the fish got off after about 5 secs.

For what it is worth, both bites came in the last hour of light

With the current light condition under the ice this year the pike are taking full advantage of having better eyesight then the chow at the dawn/dusk hours.

      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.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
