I might believe 22lbs if it was 40", but 34" is not likely. If so, I would have mounted it, because that would have been an absolute pig.

I have never fished mille lacs before, can anyone give me any ideas where to set up tip ups for pike. Are any certain bays better than others etc. ?

34" pike weighing 22lbs? Wow! He must be fishing with Babe Winkelman. I caught a 42" last summer, by this guys math I'm sure it weighed around 45lbs.

Try the "Gator Hole" in Wahkon Bay. West of Half Moon Island.

Approx area N 46,08.074 W 093,32.686.

A buddy of mine caught a 35 incher this morning out on shultz flat. I thought that was strange. I didn't think there were too many pike in the middle of the lake!

No you cannot spear out on the pond. I did catch a 36" jigging for walleyes in 15' of water north of Half moon island bout a mile. Also saw a huge one down the hole right by half moon island when the big shack was there. Would not hit on a jig or a shinner. Just layed on the bottom of the hole for about five minutes.

They're out there. Not as numerous as close to shore but I've had a few lines cut this year so far from those toothy pike on the mud flats.

A couple of other real good Pike spots are Hawkbill Point, Hennepin, and Sunset Bay.

We have had some real nice Pike caught in these areas already this year!

Fish On!!!

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
