Go to the DNR Lakefinder and do some research.

Find a small lake that most people overlook preferably close to your home.

Also take a look at the catch rate for the species that are there.

Look for one that has been stocked in recent years. Even if it has been stocked with game fish other than northerns they use those as forage and there is a good chance there are some nice fish in there.

Look for one with some good structure and a deep hole or two.

Find the "channels" that the northerns will move from the deep water into the flats.

Set up on a weed line on one of those chanels in 8 FOW with the deep water next to you.

Then sit and wait.

Merk hit it right on the head. Make sure when you are looking at these lakes, that you look for clarity as well. Always is a big thing for spearing as im sure you know, to be able to see the bottom awesome and see the fish well.

I have been doing a lot looking through my lake book, so I think I have some good ideas for lakes. When I was on mitchell I speared next to an all black spear house. The door was wide open and there was garbage all over around the the house .. I went over and peaked in to see what was up, no one was in or around it for a couple hours and there was a big live bait decoy sucker on the line still suspended in the water? This cant be legal and all the garbage was just laying there. Has anyone else seen something like this or this house out there?

happened 2 times to me yesterday!! Do big northerns chase rats? Not sure if it was coincidence or not, but the second one came up the hole the same time a big ol pig came in.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
