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

No matter what lake my house is on I always set up on weedlines by drop offs, time of year does not make a difference even though I may spear a few feet deeper later in the season...

Two in the hole at the same time. My buddy is a rookie but I think he is hooked after watching me spear that hog!

I was out on Saturday staring down the spearhole and my wife pulls out our only fish of the day on a tip-up less than 15 yards behind me. Her biggest so far, 34 inches and 11 pounds. IMGP2536.jpg

I finally found a thread that was recent about spearing! After trolling through many decoy sites to find what kinds were out on the market I stumbled upon the Double Diamond Spear page, found a link on the testimonies to this forum. I have found many tips from you seasoned guys and hopefully many will work out for me. On a whim I bought a spear from Fleet Farm last year and have been spearing ever since. Lucky for me my wonderful wife bought me a new one from a guy in Browerville (I think) I seen his spears on craigslist last year.

Hopefully this works. This is the 33.5 inch 13 pound fatty I got last weekend, biggest of my life so far. I was so excited because it came in on a WAX WORM! After I stuck it it proceeded to tear up every weed possible below the hole. Usually my dirty faced little boy (3) is super excited when I bring home fish, but he just woke up from a nap.

      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

      Hope this wasn't directed at me. I was just joking about following raven around. I go out of my way to stay away from other fisher people! 40,000 acre lake, no need to fish on top of others.
