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.

Tetonka is darn near reaching a fishable population.

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.

      Looks like Peltier Lake is locked up. Clear Lake was about 97% locked up. Just one little open hole in the middle. Forest Lake also looked to be at least 95% iced up. There were a couple small holes that a bunch of swans were keeping open. Someone on the north shore still has their dock out, and pontoon in the water! They better take advantage of this warm up and get to work!    Would appreciate more reports, especially in Isanti County and Hinckley area.

      I drove by the chain the other day and it looked to be locked up.  Don or anyone else have thickness updates? thanks!

      By my sons stand he sees about 15 to 20 of them scraping around for acorns. Drives him nuts thinking he has the 20 point buck coming in!  😟

      Nevermind the above post. Take a look at the webcams around the lake and there is very little open water. I had read Raven77's report and with the calm conditions and cold she iced up. If a good wind blows it may open up some but by the looks of things it will not happen again until spring. Lets hope for good safe ice conditions this winter and a nice snowpack for the snowmobiles.   Steve

      Where were all these critters back when the season was open?  Been seeing several just about every day during the gun season - none while hunting during the early bow season.  Oh well, looks like a promising spring.

      Really liking the Mountain Mikes reproduction skulls. This is the third one and so much easier than boiling!! 20 bucks at Mills. They have fancy skulls also but I really like the white.

      Good luck this winter cookie and be safe!

      So sad to hear about the fire yesterday. Appears they are considering rebuilding and I am hopeful they are better than ever in the future!

      And just like that there was ice as far as you could see? From what I have been herring walking traffic this weekend as long as this mild warm up and winds do not change everything.  tyler did go out yesterday and got 1 plus a miss. I personally will not be on the lake until blue thunder can drive out there. All though we added a small Kia to the fleet .  Yesterday the phone was crazy with fishermen calling about how much ice. I'm hereing 3 to 5 closer in.   We have been busy final prepping the house's and trucks. plus bow hunting Looks like I may be adding a grand ice castle to the fleet  plus I added California fish house last year at the end of the season.

      So whos all anxious for this season spearing? I been watching vids lately on youtube getting all pumped up for this coming season.   What is everybody's thoughts on the pike slot zones? I think its gonna be a tough one this year to try judging the sizes in the hole. Any clue if this is a forever thing or only experimental for the zones?
