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.

Pike,the gator hole is good but try out in front left of the trailer park out in the bay.There is alot of cabbage weeds that are green and alive all winter long.You can drill holes and see where the cabbage is with your eyes(no camera or finder needed) grin.gifgrin.gifhope this helps some!c63

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!!!

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?! 
    • leech~~
      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
