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

mrklean Id mount that fish! Look at the coloration on that! Not a big fish but that color is awesome! I have the same spear and since I fixed the barbs its back to having no problems.

haha yeah more like having to be a cabelas size mount. Like the fish mounts in the scenes they have. Whats crazy is Im sure under the ice pike in the 23lb range would love taken a chunk out of a 14lb fish for territory. How wide is the head on your 23lber? Its gotta be close to 6" or bigger gringrincool

I found the policy for the forum and I

quote:

"We're looking for fish pictures in good taste that encourage selective harvest principles so the dead fish rule is as follows: Fish pictures must be in the natural environment where the fish is caught that do not look frozen, stiff, bloodied or look like they were just poured out of a bucket, no alcohol beverage containers or cigarettes and no stringer or fish in a bucket pics. Fish Mount, inside a fish house and live release tournament pictures are ok as well.

End Quote

So in other words pike on the ice away from blood is fine-its on the lake. As far as on cardboard it doesnt look pretty and thats all I can say on that, idk. I believe that a guy holding a speared fish shouldnt have blood or anything dripping off of the fish etc. If I were some people I would simply take your fish outside even at home put it on a patch of snow and submit your picture its that easy just dont say you did so... aslong as the fish doesnt look frozen... If its frozen obviously by the rules its a no go...

Probably not exactly what a morderator would say but I think you guys get the jist of it. hope this helps clarify some things.

      Anyone heading to the WFC for the opener this weekend?  I am planning on heading up on Friday morning and hope to find some Crappie on Friday before trying to some Walleye on Saturday.  Last time on the water the temps were only low to mid 40's.  Anyone have any updates on the water temps?  I will be fishing in a Red G3 boat with a Black Talon and Yamaha kicker.  Stop and say hi if you see me, I might be fishing solo this weekend.  I will publish something about my trip Sunday or Monday.  Good Luck Everyone!  Stay safe and Tight Lines!

      Tripp   Always good to see this tread bumped and revived for the spring. Maybe, I run in to you this year on the lake......

      I've seen over 40 boats parked on a small flat on Mille Lacs before.  You can whisper to the boat fishing next to you as long as you aren't running an old loud 2-stroke motor.  Pool 4 in the spring can also be bumper boats and that's even more interesting because there's current.   I'm sure others can comment about how close people come when ice fishing.  The only written law I'm aware of is that you cannot legally fish within 10 feet of another fish house.  If someone is within casting distance of me, that is too close.  That includes recreational boats too.

      Mother Nature gave Minnesotans extra ice-free days this spring on many of the state’s water bodies, but relatively cool weather since then—including overnight lows in the 30s—means the water temperature may be lower than people expect. As anglers prepare to hit the water for Saturday’s fishing opener, it’s vital they keep this in mind and put their safety first. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I realize this is the longest of long shots, but has anyone seen some coolers (one larger blue soft-sided, another smaller gray/blue) floating around Smart's Bay or Northern Hinsdale Saturday morning or perhaps at Timbuktu Marina?   We either left them at Timbuktu Marine, or they flew out of the boat going there in Smarts Bay or Northern Hinsdale.   Thanks
