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.

Do spearers prefer bigger fish? I know alot of people Pickle Northern, Never had any and it sounds gross, what else are they good for when this big besides for a trophy?

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.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.

      That makes sense, isn't this about  "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports - Hunting"

      All right man I'll make sure to tell you how I do, I have also been looking at the sunrise river. The sunrise Looks like one of those rivers that all the local kids fished in the 80's, But then it got polluted and over fished. I'll Try the sunrise one of these days, I don't know what i'll catch,  Maybe it's like in the Simpsons with those Three eyed fish.    As for the rum river, I can't wait to fish that. I'll wait for a nice cold front when all those small mouth start to eat everything in site, They need the fat for winter. I'll make sure to tell you how it goes.
