Well our clients found one under our house. 43" released fish that had some serious girth. Once the guys get home they are going to send me the pics.

As for patterns we are seeing the pike activity increasing every day in 8-10 feet of water.

Once I get dried off, warmed up and some food in my belly I m going to type up a fishing report tonight, I will include the latest on on the pike.

dang! That's what my set up was last Friday and got the first bite then it just made a couple runs and never saw the fish and finally started to bring it up but I think I was a little too quick on it and snapped the line. That is a good set up! grin

I was with a group this weekend, and a 40 incher was caught on a tip-up with about a 5-6" shiner on a single shiner hook. We were in about 13 feet of water. The quick-strike rigs produced ZERO flags.. The single shiner hooks seem to work better. Also caught a few large walleyes on this set up as well. The largest being (2) 25 inchers.

I also agree with DankShow. Single hooks seem to produce more bites than the quickstrike with trebles. Not saying you can't get action with trebels. Shiners work for me on URL too.

We were out this weekend as well. Had a quickstrike out most of the weekend with a big sucker and nothing. The pike we got were all on our walleye gear. Had three of them, but nothing huge. The biggest was 32 inches.

Use a 11-13 inch spearing decoy on a heavy duty rod and reel. This eliminates all the small northern. When you do get one on this set up take your time let him eat the decoy.... You usually will oick up a bigger one on yis set up...

Last week, lost a pike that broke my quick strike, only to catch the same fish with the treble still in his mouth about a half hour later. Got another different one later on too. Both around 39 inches, both on suckers with quick strikes.

When I checked the houses tonight every house had caught at least one northern. One they said only about 24 inches but everybody else from 36 to 41 inches. All on walleye/crappie rigs, nothing on their tip-ups. The northern bite just seems to be getting better and better. It started 2 weeks ago as far west as we could fish and seems to be moving east fairly fast. Could the Northerns have pulled out of the dirty water from all the wind last fall and moved west across the Line? Now they are working their way back?

I was one of the "clients" that Jonny is referring to. We caught 3 northerns, 34", 38", and 43" this weekend all on small jigs with fatheads.

Man that's a beauty!!!

Will be fishing URL Sunday through Wednesday,was already excited about the walleye bite, but now have seen enough big pike posts to be REALLY fired up. What has the catch rate been like with the pike? Is it 1 or 2 a day, or more often than that?

In Kelly's house where the 43 incher was caught, the pike action took place 2 out of 3 mornings right around 9:00-10:00. The first morning, there were 2 separate pike attacks but only 1 pike made it up the hole, who knows it may have been the same fish twice but the one that came up the hole didn't have any extra hooks in its mouth. The 2nd morning produced the 43 incher and a 34 inch fish within 30 minutes of each other. The walleye bite was pretty non-existent every morning; hard to stop and eat when you're swimming for your life!

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.

      Nice article

      e-commerce applications always do wonders for any business so your idea is very good, someone here in this forum should be able to recommend you some good company that can help you develop the application, remember to ask them to review the application before launching it to the market, so that it does not come out with errors, if it has errors you will lose many users, good luck with your business!
    • FrankOcean
      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend
