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 gotta give ya a pat on the back for letting those fish go. It looks like ya got a great spot and a great lake, and it's gonna stay that way if you keep letting those big gals grow. Sometimes it's just as fun to watch 'em!

The radio station in Fargo has a catch of the week picture contest and I think the prizes are gift cards from the Sportsman's Warehouse. Either send your pixs to [email protected] or go to the Joel Heitkamp page on kfgo.com and find the link. They are picking a winner for this week and so far no pictures as of yet. There are a few fish pictures that could win.

the story on the monster is

my buddy told me he had seen a few fish on lake washington and i hadnt seen anything in the spot i was at so i moved over there new years day in the afternoon and speared for about an hour, didnt see any pike. got out the next day about 8 30. saw a few bass and sunnies right away before i had my hole cleaned out (thats a sign of a good day to me) about 9 15 that monster slid his nose into the hole looked at my sucker minnow, wasnt to intirested, moved on to my wood decoy and thats the end of the story for the fish. i couldnt have made a better shot, split the spine with two tines and pinched him with two tines. now i knew he was big but i was thinking more like 18 or 19 pounds, so i let him sit on the bottom with the spear in him for a fue miniutes untill there wasnt much movement. of corse my decoy line was tangled in my spear, but what else would you expect.

i pulled him upto the serface of the water, pushed him out the door, and kicked him off, not thinking to do it gentally so i wouldnt tear the skin up. so now i have this fish on the ice with 2 big holes in him thrashing around. i measured him 43 inches, called my dad, and said (i think i just speared my wall mounter) he replied (ya right) and i said (its 43 inches)but then i thought to myself maybe i read the tape wrong, maybe its 33 inches so i double checked, yep 43 inches and i think thats the point i s*** myself jk. i called my buddy that speared a 18 pounder the year before and asked him how big mine was. he said 20 plus.

now what do you do with a 43 inch pike that you think you might want to mount, where do you put it..............shotgun in the pickup of course.

got to dads, took pictures, went to the bait shop to weigh him a ounces shy of 23, now what taxadirmist do i go to, i have never had a fish mounted, halled it to the taxadirist, went back home

so thats the end of the story

then what do you do quit spearing because you might never get a trophy like that again..............NO i went back out that afternoon, and whenever i have a chance since.

sorry i dont know how to post pictures otherwise i would put some with this post. just look back on elwood's earlier post.

Dang carp! I was able to bend the tine back into position. Stuck the carp with the center three tines, and the one tine flexed out with the body of the carp.

Thanks for the pix and the vid. You should make the hole bigger so when the big grin one comes in you can get it out of the wink hole. When will you have the next pixs and vid ready to post?

Ya I think i may get another chistel cuz the one i have is kinda angled so its hard to hit the sides right. And i think ill make the hole bigger to like u said Fish Toys. I made a 4 by 2 today and prolly could put a 6 by 2 hole in there. otherwise it was a fun first spearing trip lol cant wait to go out there again!! hopefully tommorow and monday!

      Curious how the depth is in river from Wolf lake to Andrusia and Cass. Is it navigateable.  Was  up there last September and went through there. Kind of scenic and nice slow ride on the mighty Mississippi.  Did get a few fish as well.  Hopefully going there again this year.  Staying at my brother's cabin with his son and my dad near Becida. With dad in his early 80s hoping to keep this 3 year tradition going for a while.

      Thanks for the heads up.  I have a call into my neighbor to check on the property.  Haven’t heard back probably due to the power being out.  He may be up at his island cabin.   One of the other neighbors further down Bay Road East reported a good bit of tree damage.   Hopefully the U.S. will get their act together and reciprocate on the Aug 9 opening date.  Common sense and clear thinking is needed by all.     I am still losing sleep over that screen shot you took on Jul 9.  Sweet!!!

      Morning Smalljaw. This is good news for you and your family and any other US citizens wanting to come north. Hopefully the US government will soon allow travel the other way. We had a very strong storm on Friday, come through north side of reef point, Hopkins bay road and windy point areas. Possible tornado. Lots of trees down. Power has just been restored Sunday afternoon. Hope you will not have much clean up to do at your place. Safe travels and will be looking for you out north of the causeway ripping lips and chasing those brown fish.
