    Looked good again tonight. Keep it up guys!
  2. The m68 does not accept a Lake chip. Go with a x67 & H2O & lake chip for the best set up. Or buy a combo unit like the 522 or HDS 5.
  3. Whitecaps on Horseshoe today. Lots of water on the ice. We need more cold weather to refreeze things up a bit.

    A nice win tonight

    ...against a tough Anaheim team. Backstrom was unreal. Clutterbuck is going to get a pay raise next year at this rate.
  5. Yesterday I saw one graph and two ice conversion packs.
  6. I saw one today at Mills in St. Cloud. They have one left. 199.99 X-67C Head unit. 149.99 PP-15 Winter conversion kit.
  7. Look down the page about 20 threads. Click, and start reading.
  8. 6-0. Total domination. Woog does not sound too happy!
  9. I do not have an agenda here. I have been a faithfull reader and poster here at FM for almost 9 years. I was only asking a few questions and did not mean any harm whatsoever. I know all about spearing. My father speared every chance he got back in his day. I have many friends who spear. I personally have sat in my brothers spear house and observed him spear lots of pike over the years. I see lots of spear houses on the lakes every year. The pressure on these fish here in central MN is incredible. If you don't believe me, take a look at your favorite lake and count the spear houses that dot the shorelines. 20 years ago, the pike fishing and spearing was much better in my opinion. I know that many pike are harvested each year both by spear and tip-up fishing. Due to the increased pressure, I believe that selective harvest will help our fisheries recover over time. I have never eaten a large pike before. I really do enjoy catching pike both summer and winter. Once in a while I will keep a smaller pike to eat, and they are great table fare. I hope you guys continue to respect our great natural resource in not harvesting the larger pike. Thank you! Again, I did not mean any harm in my questions here. I am just merely stating my opinions!
  10. No, I can't. I'm sure some fish that are released end up dead anyway. I'm sorry to upset anyone here, I'm merely stating my opinion.
  11. Nice job on harpooning those big pike. Do they really taste good? I wonder how many years it takes to grow a 17+ pound pike?
  12. 1. Use a eight inch auger. 2. Use a tip-up with a quick strike rig, tipped with a lively shiner. Most if not all fish are released unharmed. 3. Drill two holes, one for each tip-up. 4. Northerns, bass, walleyes, or anything that eats shiners.
  13. How come you did not drop the spear?
