I was there last week end, we found lots of fish in Hammer Bay we had 10 walleyes Sat. You could graph tons of fish in 32-34 feet but they didn't want to bite. The fish we cought were heading up to the shallower water 8-12 feet. They short bit jigs and hammered the minnow on a spinner. I had a fire tiger that couhg the most between us. We also cought a few northerns fishing the same way. The fish really were on the move. It seemed each hour would bring a different size class fish or type. Rainbows and lite pike minnows did better than chubs for us, Nothing on leaches.

The warden said that the crappies were starting at the mouth of Swansons Bay I believe he said. We didn't have time to try for them.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
