Early spring Pike question.

Recommended Posts

Wiskers

Every year I head up to Warroad to stalk the moster Pike as they head back into the lake out of the Warroad river. This year was no diffrent.. however... we caught several large pike that had what appeared to be tape worms hanging out of the exit end of the fish...??? I have never heard of fish getting tape worms??? Any info on this???? Man that put a whole new idea on handling the fish I tell ya.. if they were tape worms, they can be gotten just form touching them if you break off a cell..... ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.......cut the line..........Maybe Im off but I have never seen this in all my years.........It kinda creaps me out, ya know.... <P>------------------<BR><A HREF="http://wiskersguidingservice.com" TARGET=_blank>Wiskers Guiding Service</A><BR>Red River, Red Lake River & Minnesota River,for Channel Cats, Flatheads & Walleyes<BR>Crookston, MN<BR> wiskers@gra.midco.net<P>218-280-0442<p>[This message has been edited by Wiskers Guiding Service (edited 05-01-2004).]

Well too bad I did'nt get to see you and that jetboat when you were up. Sunday was day 2 of Zippel tourney, went to GFKS on Monday, and Tuesday you must have cleared out by the time I got down there that afternoon. I've been wanting see one of those boats up close, I've only gotten a quick peek at one last year at the GFKS Catfish tourney as it was trailered by.<P>BUT....I have a feeling I may see your boat one day. I remember you posting that you were from up here originally and had only fished the lake a couple of times in your life. I read about your first ever outing on the Rainy this spring, and saw the pics of your first Sturgeon and some nice Walleye. Now you were up Pike fishing, hmmmm, sounds like maybe you've been bitten by the LOTW/Rainy river bug, and being Crookston is only 2-3 hours from the fishing grounds up here I wonder if I won't see you skipping across the waves on the big lake sometime this summer!<P>Lot's of water and fishing opportunities to explore and learn up here thru the different seasons of the year for sure.<P>Another thing you may find right up your alley....If you come up and the lake is just too windy and rough you could maybe give that Roseau river a whirl, I think you would like this as it is somewhat simuliar to the Redlake river in fishes availiable and what not. I think your river boat would like that river too! <P>Have a great season, hope you make it up now and then.... let us know when you do cause I'd like a peek at that rig of yours!<P>Best regards....Fisky<BR>

On the 20th of May, we will be on Oak Island, for our annual walleye fishing trip. Have two guys flying in, and also want to get in on some pike action. Any spots recommended would be appreciated.<P>Thanks!<P>------------------<BR>Teach kids to hunt and fish.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
