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...

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.

      And just a few days later, I got my first 10inch bluegill of the season.  Same body of water Royce got his from, but clearly a different shaped hen bluegill. As always, trophy size fish get released😁   VID_20210418_110303001~2.mp4

      First outing this spring turned out fairly successful.  Not consistent action yet but enough to stay interested.  Nothing bigger than 12 inches though.  All were released fully alive to complete the reproductive process.

      Last summer while doing a surgery recovery, i got into watch the canal harbor cams of Duluth. Not sure what is going on but at night there has been several people dropping what could be nets or a trap over the side of the wall.  Would like to know if these guys are catching smelt or bait?

      I probably won’t turkey hunt this spring - working way too much!  This morning before heading out I had multiple birds gobbling from the area I got mine last year. Probably would’ve been an easy score.

      Hey all, just moved back to MN where I grew up after living in the PNW for a long while. I became addicted to fishing rivers and streams out there and have started to check out the offerings in the NW section of the state as of yesterday’s opener. Wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me some pointers or just tell me if I’m wasting my time since that’s what I’m wondering right now since I didn’t find any signs of fish. I’m using a spinning rod with Mepp’s and Panther Martin style spinners and went through a bunch of color combos. I started yesterday morning at the Clearwater River in western Beltrami County essentially on the border with Clearwater County where the state has some land and a pretty lengthy easement. Probably a well known area. Beautiful area to walk through. Found multiple holes, but yeah no fish at all. I waded for a bit and decided to leave. I went south since I live closer to Moorhead and stopped at Felton Creek. I’ve read a DNR study about this creek having a decreasing population of fish, but it’s still considered a trout stream although not “designated”. I understand the channelization of creeks in this region ruined fish habitat over the last 100 years, but still find some DNR material as of the last 5 years that reference Felton Creek as a spot for trout. Walked the stream for a bit before I left and headed to Lawndale Creek south of Barnesville. I waded through the AMA on the Atherton WMA expecting to find some brook trout since the DNR has stocked it as of at least 2017. Nothing through the entire stretch besides frogs and minnows. Are there actually fish in these places? The Clearwater and Lawndale are designated trout streams. The Clearwater is stocked annually and Lawndale is supposed to have wild brook trout. Anyone have any experience in these spots? Should’ve just drove down MN200 & 71 to the obvious spots in Becker/Hubbard?

      Oh my!  Those brown fish will be roaming the shallows soon.
