Anybody know where the BIG pike hang out on this lake? To me it seems like a huge bowl.

Big Pike are indeed in this lake. If I were to start looking for trophy size Pike, I would begin looking at a lake map of the body of water you want to fish. Free lake maps at Minnesota DNR website. I will set my tip ups when fishing these toothy predators, you can cover more area this way, increasing your chance for that trophy fish. I look in bays, inside corners of main lake areas. I usually set up anywhere between 6’-15’ feet of water set halfway to two thirds down the water column. If you can find weeds this time of the year, fish the outside edge or inside pockets within. Use a larger sucker minnow (bigger the better) on a quick strike rig. I will trim the tail on the sucker, this helps to slow him down, otherwise it might trigger your flag. Like myself I love to target big pike. My best day on the ice was on a local lake where I released two fish with in 20 minutes, one was 42” and the other 44”. Good Luck and many Flags to you.

Had one go for my underwater camera today. Looked like a scene from "Jaws" on my little 3.5 inch monitor. Wished I'd had a recorder hooked up to it.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
