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

I got my PB today shattering my old record of 8 lbs. I wasn't even planning on going to day but decided to go anyways. She came in at about 10:30 to a bear creek perch decoy. I Was really lucky to because my heater just ran out of propane at the same time it came in. I would have been heading home in another 10 minutes or so. I have a video of the action to but I don't know if it would be ok to put it on here.

39" 17 lbs.

Nicely done!!!!!!!!!

I don't know if it would have helped, but I always try to pull the spear up in front of me and push the fish and spear against the wall in front. Might have bent the spear on that one, though!!!

I prefer to just grab the fish, big or small, as soon as it comes to the surface. This fish didn't thrash around or anything once I grabbed it. It stayed absolutely still until I got it outside and off the spear. If the hit was farther back I think pinning it up against the wall would be the best bet.

TDH, That is the most awesome spearing video I have ever seen! My heart was beating out of my chest when that monster was swimming around the hole with the spear, I can't imagine how you were fealing! I take some video of fish coming in with my cell phone but I wouldn't be able to get a big one on video that way. Congrats on an absolute pig and a great lifetime memory with the video.

Darkhousefisher nice fish and I was starting to wonder what happened to you way up there in Alaska. Hows it going?

Yeah I'm still around, lol. I'm working in a power plant now so I got work all year long, unfortunatelly it cuts into my spearing time. I like the money, but I kinda miss having my winters off.

As far as ice thickness goes it's about 24 inches in the lakes around here. So far we have had an awesome winter for outdoors activities. It's been staying around mid 20's during the day with lots of sunshine and getting down to single digits at night. No compaints from up here!!

      Try Duane's Marine in Virginia,MN. Great service, a Evinrude/ Johnson dealer, on the second generation.

      I posted some information on a May 5 on Rainy lake 2020 fishing .... basically no crossing the border.   Muskies HSOShow.com Family 'we have more fun' I Share On FishingMN  132 199 posts Location: Reef Point, Rainy Lake Author Posted May 5 Found this information and thought it would be good to share:   This from the CDN gov’t.  COVID-19 Notice: February 3, 2021 During the COVID-19 pandemic, unless exempted, foreign national boaters are not permitted to enter Canadian waters. Failure to comply with the current prohibition of entry for discretionary or optional reasons (leisure, pleasure fishing, sightseeing, etc.) may result in severe monetary penalties or criminal conviction and/or imprisonment. Visit Transit through Canadian waters for more information.   Opener on the Ontario side of rainy lake is May 15. Good fishing to everyone!

      That's a good thought. I'll call but they went "online" only last year so he no longer has a shop. He talked with me about how he needed to cut his fixed costs in order to compete with all of the online parts suppliers selling out of their garages.   It's a shame though. That place was amazing. Lots of great, old motors on the walls. When I went there needing a new lower unit for my 1957 motor, he pulled out a box and said "which color?" The place was a timewarp of boat motors.

      I'll be up there with a couple friends on the chain. Never have any confidence for walleyes on opener, so we'll go after whatever bites (with an emphasis on eyes). 😀

      On the south end...  On the lake, the focus is on the May 15, 2021 Fishing Opener for walleyes.  There is much optimism as fishing in the Rainy River this spring was excellent and reports of good fishing from the spring season on the lake was also good. The limit for walleyes and saugers during the open season is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  There is a slot limit in which all walleyes 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One can be kept over 28 inches.   Pike anglers are still catching fish in back bays. The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.     On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers are enjoying catch and release through 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season opens up again on 7/1/21 - 9/30/21. Good numbers of sturgeon have been running in the Rapid River near Clementson just east of Baudette this past week.  These fish are incredible to see up close, but are also very much protected and respected. Anglers looking to this weekend and the opener.  Typically, there is some good walleye fishing in the river early in the season, such as this weekend. Up at the NW Angle...  A few anglers fishing pike in back bays but most looking forward to the May 15th fishing opener.  The go to walleye spots come the opener will be shoreline and island structure and underwater points.  The technique, a jig and a minnow! With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      i will be up in the area but not sure i will hit the chain.  the history with me and opener on the chain has not been productive so this year I am finding a smaller shallow lake in the area and going to hit it for walleyes.  I have not asked my father in law what the temps were but he has hit south cross and clamshell a few times and when fish are caught they have been on the smaller side.  Good Luck to you!

      If I snagged an anchor line I am pretty sure i would not ask the anchored angler to lift so I can get my jig back, but I am sure I would warn them that there is a hook now in there anchor line!  I am that way fishing around docks...if I get caught on a dock I will always butt up to it and carefully remove my hook so they do not stick themselves or have a little kid get stuck from it.  Amazingly I have had confrontations with people in this regard!  And it is not like i am pitching bass jigs as I am usually crappie fishing around docks so i am using light line, small hook and cork bobber so I am not hurting a dock if i accidentally cast into it.  Oh well...Good luck to all you Vermillion fisherman on opener and in the rest of the season!

      No one's been out on the chain?

      Twin City Outboard in Shakopee only works on old motors.  They do great work and the pricing is reasonable.

      My 1960 Johnson Seahorse is on the fritz. I did an overhaul the over the winter rebuilding the carb, replacing dry fuel hoses, fixing two stripped bolts (helicoils) on the powerhead, etc... This spring she only wants to run on one cylinder. I am assuming that it's the coil or something similar but suck at the electrical side.    Great American Marine in Bloomington won't touch old motors anymore. Neither will Boat Motor Recyclers in Burnsville (1990 and up!).    Does anyone up near Vermilion still work on older motors? I'll take a recommendation for somewhere near the lake or in the Twin Cities. Any input is appreciated.
