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!!!

      Ten Point what resort were you out of?  Thinking of going up this weekend.
    • gimruis
      I haven't seen many yet. I did see a good number of pheasants on a drive to and from Pierz the other day though.

      My point was that I don't want ANY ethanol in an engine/motor that gets used for a while and then sits there - that's why I run ethanol free premium in them.  The ethanol sits there and gums up vital engine parts.  All of my irregular use engines are modern 4-strokes that run very smoothly and use a minimal amount of fuel and I'm going to do everything I can to keep them like that.  I use normal 87 or 89 octane unleaded in my truck because I use that almost every day all year round.

      Got 5 nice 12"ers to fill my special regulation lake limit.. Morning bite was as good as evening bite has been. Released another 7 smaller 10" class fish. Fished 545-700 am. Crappie minnows were the bait of choice today. 1 rod was all I could handle with these suicidal slabs. Had one snap my 4# test flourocarbon leader on the hookset.

      The issue with that is, the DNR strongly supports "AIS Prevention" such as these inspections. So I doubt the DNR will stop funding activities on lakes that are doing something they would like to see expanded.

      This is from a major marine engine maufacturer, YAMAHA, perhaps you have heard of them... "Not long after the introduction of E10 gasoline, boats using it began experiencing problems. Almost immediately mysterious substances began clogging fuel filters that were later identified as a byproduct of mixing fuel still in the tank containing *MTBE with ethanol-blended gasoline, but that was only a harbinger of things to come. Fuel lines approved for gasoline engines on boats reacted badly with the ethanol additive and started breaking down causing clogged filters; and in cases where the problem was not identified quickly, possible fuel leaks were the result. Any sludge deposits in older fuel tanks began dissolving and were pumped into the fuel system, damaging components and making a mess of filters. And boats with fiberglass fuel tanks were subject to the added nightmare of ethanol actually eating away the resin, which required replacement of the tank and in many cases, serious damage to expensive engine components like valves, carburetors and injectors." *MTBE was used to boost octane pre-ethanol. We won't even go into my opinion of damage I've personally seen in the last 20 years. But if you would like more direct quotes from big name industry leaders let me know.   As I stated before I won't comment or advise unless I have first hand knowledge on the subject... I know NOTHING about biodiesel. Until boats are powered by it, it doesn't even exist in my world. Sorry Bob, I got up early to slay some slab crappie, not research diesel issues. Crappies don't catch themselves!🎣😉

      This is from Chevron lubricants, released in August 2018, listing the 3 main problems with ethanol blends. "Phase Separation: Gasoline oxygenated with 10 percent ethanol is capable of dissolving far more water than conventional gasoline alone. When this gasoline, ethanol and water blend is cooled, both the water and some of the ethanol become insoluble. The result is that the fuel separates into two layers or phases: an upper gasoline layer and a lower, ethanol-rich water layer. The gasoline layer will have a lower octane number and may cause knocking. The fuel also is less combustible; an engine will not run on the water-ethanol layer.   Corrosion: When water finds its way into the fuel system and combines with air, corrosion of iron and other metallic surfaces can occur, potentially affecting fuel pumps, injectors, fuel tanks, and other metallic components, causing them to degrade and decreasing their useful life. Water resulting from phase separation can also cause rust or corrosion over time.   Deposits: When gasoline components react with the oxygen in the air, the result is the formation of peroxides or gums. Soluble gums can lead to engine deposits, and insoluble gums can plug fuel filters. Deposits can also form throughout an engine’s intake system, including the fuel injectors, carburetor, intake manifold, intake ports and intake valves. The result is a noticeable decrease in engine performance, power and fuel economy, while increasing emissions and drivability."

      Just got back from LOTW fishing for us was slow. But if you put the time in and watch your electronics it can still be good. We're fishing in 32ft lot of small fish just need to keep the hook away from them several good fish still coming thru. A few slot fish up to 26 1/2 inches walleyes 15 to 17 saugers 14 to 16 lot of water under the snow in spots.
