"Pike on theSt.Louis" (pics)

Recommended Posts

First day of the fishing season is here!...and not that bad!...I headed to the "Forbes Dam" on the St.Louis River to see what was biting....usually the redhorse and black suckers are in full swing along with some northerns and a few walleyes....the northerns were stacked up like cord wood this morning!...simply couldn't keep em off your hook!... grin...I know I caught and released probably 12 or so and the guy next to me probably caught and released 20!...other years I certainly get some northern action but this year simply unreal!...fun for sure!....nothing really big size wise maybe up to 5 lbs. or so but they really "slammed" the red and white dare devils!...and of course the suckers were hitting in between....even caught a sucker on a daredevil!...caught all these fish in about 2 1/2 hours...back in Hibbing by noon! grin

the northerns are really in there "thick"...if a guy likes northern fillets....this is your chance!.....oh!.....no walleys!....zip!...simply not in there yet!....apparently just to early and conditions aren't right for walleyes in any numbers...usually someone gets a few nice ones at the dam but not one was caught....but then again I was only there 2 1/2 hours....Warden was checking licenses....after he checked me he looked over my shoulder and started running (yes running!) up the bank after a "potential" not sure what happened there! grin

Great morning! Nothing more fun than a pike or two to keep you occupied!

Ooh, you got some slimers. I detest touching the snotty toothy critters. However, they can be a blast to catch. Thanks for sharing your action. I'm a bit of a fair weather fisherman, so my time has not yet come.

Looks like a fun day Jonny! I'm really looking forward to some nice summer days and a boat on the water. Glad to see you had some luck.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
