Hiya -

Mother-in-law got the itch and reserved us some accomodations at the usual place for the 2nd week of July and let 'em know we'd be needing a guide...not just any guide...but Sir Oveson. He really should be knighted, y'know. grin.gif

Maybe this year you can shake some time loose for that drink by the campfire!

Man, I'm looking forward to it!

A1, good to hear from you, can't believe you are going to get away from those catfish long enough to get up here. I will make sure I can get away for a little while, wife and I hope to stay down there occassionally. Lots of changes there since your last trip up. I hope Sir Oveson can accomodate you, he says he is not going to guide much this year, so feel privledged. He will be a youthful 92 this year. guts

Hmmm maybe Mother-in-law can coax him out with some homemade lefsa!?! If I'm willing to rice up the taters, she's willing to make some!

I'm looking forward to it! "Up North" is like stepping out of the skin I wear every working day and letting the sun, wind and water soak the soul!

Say, I was wondering if deep trolling with dipsies & such would be a worthwhile tactic for big pike? What's yer take on deep trolling action in the summer up there?

Ron, the water temps and baitfish locations will be the indicators for big pike. I've known big sucker minnows to do the job when nothing else works. Using dipsies and or deep divers could work well, as might using leadline and a diver combo.

I've caught many a nice fish, using a 1oz or heavier slip sinker and a #18 floating rap rather than live bait.

I should mention that some of the nicer pike that are consistently caught throughout the summer, are simply caught using a large bobber and big suckers, lots of these are taken near the area of Gold Portage and in Hacksaw Pass, both locations near the resort.

I'll probably have more ideas and locations as the time approaches, and the facts come in. guts

      not snagged   https://www.inforum.com/sports/outdoors/1009136-McFeely-Lincoln-angler-breaks-N.D.-state-walleye-record-but-doesnt-think-itll-last-long

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
