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!

      The mouth of the creek is quite a ways downstream from the landing, and you’ll have to cross several peoples’ docks. Entire stream is surrounded by private property. Sure, you can technically legally access the stream, but why would you want to bother with the headache of dealing with landowners that DON’T want you there? Stream is small enough to step across in most places, it’s very weedy, and lot’s of overhanging brush. Not to mention, below average at best numbers of small trout!   You want easy access? Buy a Wisconsin license! Right across the river in Pierce County alone, there’s hundreds of miles of public easements on trout streams that are ten times better than anything Minnesota has to offer!

      Pike suckers are about 3½ inches long.  Walleyes really like them in the fall and early winter.  Caught my fish in 13-15 FOW drifting slowly.  Good solid bites.

      Got up Thursday evening to rain and pretty heavy wind Friday morning had us holding off on putting the boat in the water. Fished briefly Friday evening at sunset and picked up an 18" and a couple smalls. Fishing was decent Saturday morning but no real size, everything was 12-15". I had one that looked to be 17"ish flop off as I was trying to flip it into the boat. All the fish we caught were in 17-22'. We were fishing around about a 6' top but never caught anything on top. They appeared to be relating to the structure but not actually on it. Tried again Saturday evening for a couple hours and continued to pick up small walleye just like the morning. Sunday was windy again but we decided to slug it out for awhile and caught one decent perch and one small walleye. We fished similar depths and spots as Saturday but they weren't there. Marked them out in 35'+ but didn't feel like fighting the wind out in the big water so we called it quits around noon and never went back out(the wind never really did lay down or we may have tried again). Jig/minnow way outfished bottom bouncers/crawlers. Wish bottom bouncers would have worked better because it was tough to keep a jig down as fast as we were drifting and we never found a school to spot lock on.

      I am heading up there tomorrow.  Where do you guys get minnows up in the area?  Tower or Cook or down in Virginia?  I have never heard of pike suckers?  How large are they?  Are you guys fishing the East or West side of the lake?  Let me know.  I am thinking of fishing the East side tomorrow and then headed to the west side from Thursday thru Sunday.  Any help would be appreciated?  I am a newby to the area.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
