I don't believe that there are alot of pike swimming in south Washington but after being with the DNR one day last summer checking populations of the different species, there are some very nice pike in the lake for sure. One just needs to find them.

I think there was a picture of it in Westwood. It was a really nice fish if that was the pic!

low population density, large average size. There's always a few spear houses around for the big girls...

I saw the pic in Outdoor News. It was 43 inches long, and had a nice heavy body. Very nice fish. It just said it was "taken" from Lake Washington so that doesn't really clear up whether or not it speared or caught.

I think that there are more out there than a person thinks. There was a 38" muskie that was in the seiner's net a few weeks ago and some large northerns. I guess it like TO said weird rigs or thinking outside the box more. I going to fish more where people ussully don't go and see what happens.

The water has been dirty on washington the last few years so its been hard to see the fish in a little deeper water. This year its been much clearer.

      These are definitely for laying back, not sitting up. I can honestly sit in these for hours ... but thanks for looking!  
    • Mike89
      love the chairs but for me I like a chair that sits up more!!  other wise I might have gotten 2!!!  nice work!!!!👍

      Ash river ice went out yesterday, the lake is about 10 days after, so ice out should be before May 1st.

      If you are interested in a new Adirondack Chair, or set of chairs, and would like some built just for you now is a great time. These generally take less than a week to build, depending on quantity and the finish you choose.   These are hand-built using premium cedar lumber that will last for many years. You can choose to have it stained or leave unfinished. If unfinished it will have virtually no maintenance and will weather to a pleasing gray color. These are Xtra-Large heavy duty chairs using mostly 2 x 4, 2 x 6 and 2 x 8 lumber for frame pieces and 1 x 2 and 1 x 4 slats. They feature a double contour for maximum comfort - you can literally sit in these for hours and feel great. Perfect for the cabin, lakeshore, around the fire-pit or on your home deck.   Single chair - Unstained: $225 Siingle chair - Stained - $250 Two chairs - Unstained: $425 Two chairs - Stained: $450   Higher quantities are negotiable. PM me with questions or requests.   These are hand built and available for pick up in Grand Rapids, MN.

      Here is a link to the latest on The Wright County AIS program.  http://www.co.wright.mn.us/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1057 It is dead for now. They may try to spin this in the future, so watch for other clever ways they will try to privatize the lakes.  See the full board discussion in the video replay, the boat inspection topic starts at 1:49:50

      I think we'll be safe for open water on the opener.  I'm hoping for open water the weekend before.  That will be a close call. Forecast looks good.
