Couple of pike that showed up for a photo op this morning. 

Here is a pike I got on Saturday the 20th. 39" 18.4 lbs. She tasted great out of the smoker!

Thanks. The skinny pike is my very first dark house pike. This is kind of my son's gig. He was interested so I helped him get into it. Today I got a turn with the spear I made for him a couple years a

One of your ice saws was one of my better spearing investments grin

Pike here get pretty big, there are a few lakes in the interior that are notorious for monsters, the problem up here is getting to the lakes. If the lake is road accessible, it will see alot of fishing pressure. But if you have the way$ and mean$ to get to the remote areas, you can get some real trophys.

Nice photos.

how clear is the water up there!

Depends on the lake. Some are crystal clear, others are murky. On the other hand, most of the rivers look like chocolate milk as they are ussually glacial fed and carry alot of the glacial flour.

My son and I made it out again today. He has been in the shack when I speared one and he has seen pike in the hole, but he has never seen one speared. So today I made sure he was standing next to me when I speared them. He thought it was great!

Nothing like leftover fleisch kuechle warmed up over the buddy heater on a cold day!

This pike hung up on the outside of the hole. I snapped the pic. Then moved the suckers to the right side of the hole. The fish slowly moved into the hole. This is deeper water than I am used to. I think about 11 FOW. The pike was pretty low, maybe 8 feet down. When the pike moved into the hole I stood, moved to my left as much as I could, slowly lowered my stainless steal "amish" spear into the water, lined up the shot, and hit the 26" fish behind the head.

This little tike came in dreaming of a full stomach. In the end he eyed up the sucker for a couple of minutes, but never actually tried to bite the sucker. Notice the sunny not being real worried.

I love the pics you guys take. Crystal clear water with green weeds on the bottom. Wish I could find a spot like that to spear. Best I have ever found is clear water with sand on the bottom, but nothing that gives good depth perception. I could sit and stare down those holes from now till sunset on sunday!!

Picture taken at 10:53:58 AM. I had to reach out over the hole with the camera. The muskie was directly under me!

She was hungry. After grabbing the sucker this 26.5" got the 7 tine spear behind the head.

The two toothy critters just before 11 were the only toothy critters seen during four hours of sitting.

I was able to get my Nephew Clayton out spearing on Saturday 21st for a couple of hours. He speared with me last year on one occasion where he was able to take one pike. About 15 minutes into the day, a 3 pound pike came in nice, I coached him on placing the spear head in the water and making a nice throw. Got it perfect behind the head. I told him it looked like he was ready for a big one! About a half hour later, As I had raised the decoy to about a foot below the ice, a very big fish slid in right under his feet, I noticed he was shaking instantly upon seeing it's nose. As the fish inched slowly into the hole, I coached him again, but could see he was excited, as there were ripples coming off of the spear handle at the water surface! He took the fish about 3 feet under the water surface, and never let go of the spear! fish number 2 ended up being a 38 inch pike, long and lean no belly to speak of but none the less a great fish. Third fish came in nice about 6 feet under surface, I had to chuckle at Clay's attempt to hold the spear , stopping it a foot from the pike. Great experience for him and myself as well. th_100_0434Small.jpg

What am I doing that it posts a link, and not the pic?

fisherking01 are you going to the full screen to post pictures? You can’t post pixs in the quick reply. Glad you are teaching him and he had great luck right away instead of seeing nothing and then decides this isn’t any fun.

gotta question, these photos of fish in the water, are they taken with an ordinary digital camera, or some fancy setup you guys own? confusedconfusedblushsmile

glenn57, nothing fancy for me. I did have to learn a few of the buttons and things to get the pictures to turn out predictably decent.
