Nice fish. It's interesting that the DNR released a statement yesterday encouraging anglers to release big gills, because they are the males defending the nests. Maybe that's common knowledge, but I always assumed the big ones were the females.

 we think this one is a male from the color on top pic and size of the ear flap. But not 100% sure. middle pic colors look more like female but cameras can be tricky on colors. great plan to release the bigger fish.  pass on those genetics. Caught tonnage this week and didn't put the knife to any. :)

All went back... big ones, really big ones and huge ones... all were released😉 funny thing was we really didnt catch many small ones. I think i got maybe a dozen fish under 8 inches in 9hrs of fishing

Sweet. Could you imagine getting into a school of big ones like that while ice fishing with ultralight gear?  Maybe you've actually done it - but I just have to dream.

No... whats really cool is the fact we were on true trophy size fish... and never kept one... not even the big one you got. I know plenty of folks who would have mounted that one, and you tossed it back without a moments hesitation or regret after. Good job, dude!

      The mouth of the creek is quite a ways downstream from the landing, and you’ll have to cross several peoples’ docks. Entire stream is surrounded by private property. Sure, you can technically legally access the stream, but why would you want to bother with the headache of dealing with landowners that DON’T want you there? Stream is small enough to step across in most places, it’s very weedy, and lot’s of overhanging brush. Not to mention, below average at best numbers of small trout!   You want easy access? Buy a Wisconsin license! Right across the river in Pierce County alone, there’s hundreds of miles of public easements on trout streams that are ten times better than anything Minnesota has to offer!

      Pike suckers are about 3½ inches long.  Walleyes really like them in the fall and early winter.  Caught my fish in 13-15 FOW drifting slowly.  Good solid bites.

      Got up Thursday evening to rain and pretty heavy wind Friday morning had us holding off on putting the boat in the water. Fished briefly Friday evening at sunset and picked up an 18" and a couple smalls. Fishing was decent Saturday morning but no real size, everything was 12-15". I had one that looked to be 17"ish flop off as I was trying to flip it into the boat. All the fish we caught were in 17-22'. We were fishing around about a 6' top but never caught anything on top. They appeared to be relating to the structure but not actually on it. Tried again Saturday evening for a couple hours and continued to pick up small walleye just like the morning. Sunday was windy again but we decided to slug it out for awhile and caught one decent perch and one small walleye. We fished similar depths and spots as Saturday but they weren't there. Marked them out in 35'+ but didn't feel like fighting the wind out in the big water so we called it quits around noon and never went back out(the wind never really did lay down or we may have tried again). Jig/minnow way outfished bottom bouncers/crawlers. Wish bottom bouncers would have worked better because it was tough to keep a jig down as fast as we were drifting and we never found a school to spot lock on.

      that last pic is great!!   Hazel is saying oppps!!!

      I am heading up there tomorrow.  Where do you guys get minnows up in the area?  Tower or Cook or down in Virginia?  I have never heard of pike suckers?  How large are they?  Are you guys fishing the East or West side of the lake?  Let me know.  I am thinking of fishing the East side tomorrow and then headed to the west side from Thursday thru Sunday.  Any help would be appreciated?  I am a newby to the area.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
