I was just up in Elysian, Mn visiting my grandpa Tom Laska n doing some spearing and was wondering if any of you guys speared in this area and might be able to point me in the direction of a good Northern Pike Lake, I tried Madison Lake and Rays lake with no success, for northerns anyway, Madison lake on sunday produced 7 nice sunfish between my gf and I, that was about it tho. Thx for your time guys...

Ive always had decent success on tetonka. I always go right out from the beach in waterville. I think francis would be a good place to try also. I personnally have never speared it but there are alot of northerns in there, and that right in eylsian.

I would try some of the smaller lakes in the area, i.e. Fish, lily, reeds, steele, roemhilts, george, etc...

They seem to have clear water and good northern populations.

Ya he remembers ya, Ken right? Ill be up Sunday I think might do some spearing, gotta new spear from the madison lake baitshop to try out, I think I wanna either go to 1.Reeds 2.West Jefferson, 3.Fish, or 4.Francis, I want to be able to drive close to where Im going for all the gear I got so I dont know which one to go to, High northern population lakes sound good, I ike getting out just to even see the fish come in and all, take more pictures then actually spearing smile Any Ideas. Id like to stay within 8 to 10ft of water, with some weeds around.

Another lake i forgot to mention before but its a lil bit of a drive is mazaska. Every time ive speared here ive seen at least a couple. There is alot of northerns here and a some nice sized ones. The lake is right in shieldsville on 21. Something to think about especially if u go to kelly dudley because mazaska is only a few miles down the road.

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
