Muskie entering hole     She came back a while later and was in and out for the last hour of my last sit of the season     Pike sampling a decoy  

I got a DL Smithing spear this weekend. 

Thanks MJ - you too.   I finally got a hole cut yesterday.  No luck while exploring a new lake but at least it got the blood flowing again.   Plus I got to swim the last two Grumpy

I know I will be out someplace, just not sure where. I'm leaning more in the direction of staying close and hitting lake George just south of SF.

It's nice and close and I've never speared it before. So many lakes on the list not enough time.

Got out this morning for a couple of hours saw a dogfish and a sunfish that had been hit by a pike and was hanging with my decoy for a bit then it swam off not long after that I speared a 32 incher and a 24 incher, One for tonight's dinner and one for the pickle pail.

I got out this evening I am set up fairly close to gordie. I got there at about 12:30 and had a 30 inch on the ice about 15 mins into my day. Saw to other small ones and about 60 crappies. Had panfish in my hole all day. I have had some time off work lately and have been spearing everyday and averaging seeing 15 pike a day but today was really slow and only saw the three.

Portage, WI. I really should boycott this state because they don't allow you to spear pike.

The lake I prefer to spear on is way too dirty right now, so moved the house to a clearer lake. A city of fish houses is already springing up on the new lake. I was set-up about 2:00 and speared until 4:00. The only pike I saw was on the camera before I got set-up. Ended up catching a keeper crappie as I was pulling in my fathead at the end of the day. Hope to be out again at sunrise on Saturday.

You should have no problem getting a limit there,however they are all normally under the 30 inch mark.

I saw a large mouth bass and a monster small mouth along with 3 dogfish, two of which I speared, I also saw 4 small pike, and this was worth the wait. No windows to look out of in a spear shack so when you open the door and see this its defiantly a bonus! full-15313-40549-securedownload1(17).jpg

I was hoping to head to Isle Bay or Upper Red next week with Mollie and Joe to chase some flags if I'm not working. Sounds like there are some tough ice conditions to deal with up there. I'll probably just stick closer to home.

I'm going to haul for one customer this winter. It looks like they might keep me busy. Good part is most of it is Midwest and I'll be home most weekends. Its kind of unpredictable so I'll have to wait and see.

Rush Lake???????

If so let me know,we have been toying with the idea of cutting a spear hole and jigging spoons and rattle traps for big pike on the short ultra lights.

The guy that was with yesterday is from devils lake Nodak and guides out there and that is how they catch the pike on that body of water. He also has caught some JUMBO Perch that way out there.

I am going to head that way in March looking for a 25 plus pike for the wall.

I love going out there but its such a zoo during the Xmas break. I have caught some beauty's out there but if you're spotted the masses are like sharks to fresh blood.

      I would explore helical footings.  Why not? Below is a company I’ve worked with. Not sure if they work up north or if they know someone that does? They are knowledgeable, a phone call should do er’ and see what you can find out. Good luck!   https://goliathtechmn.com/

      ice is still looking good, have roughly 24inces give or take a little. Cats have been kinda tough to find in any real numbers. I have done a bit of scouting this week.  I think I might have an area pinned down that has activity... Will do a bit more scouting this weekend and into next week.   Will Have  The location posted by Mid week for sure.  Will also keep monitoring ice conditions.

      Well, might as well add some details to Royce's pics...lol With the longer days and warming weather pattern this week.  We have started to see more quality fish moving shallow to take advantage of the food and cover skinny water provides. Panfish start to move out from the basins during late winter to feed on the insects that become more active as the days get longer and warmer. There is also more oxygen available due to the weeds starting to grow again.     We have been finding more quality fish showing up in the 8-12 ft areas close to the greenest thickest weed available.  Insect type baits  like the p3 spug, the chigger fry and mayfly rigged on 3-4mm tungsten jigs have been working best.

      Never been there in may but early to mid June has provided lots of great memories!

      Have fished 15 hours the last yesterday and today without catching a walleye. Y store only had crappie minnows and Fuel and Food had no minnows Thursday morning when I came up so I had to fish with the crappie minnows. My fish house neighbor caught 3 walleyess yesterday morning on pike suckers so I went back into town to get some after bait was delivered. Didn't help. I have only caught four 15" tulibee and a 12" perch. Switching to lake trout the rest of the weekend. 34" of ice. Gas sugar barely made it through. McKinley Park landing has a lot of water on the plowed road as you enter the lake. The Ice Castles may have a hard time getting off the lake this weekend. Good luck if you venture out and be careful.

      I haven't got mine either.  But I don't intend to fish again until there's open water.  Carry on Bob
