ND Big Pike

Recommended Posts

If you had to pick b/t the two lakes what would be your choice for big pike through the ice?

Sakakawea or Devils Lake?

Our dates are Dec.27th-31st OR March 16th-19th

What do you guys think?

Hard to go wrong with either, but if I were choosing between those two lakes and those two dates, I'd take Sakakawea in March. The water is up and should make for better fishing next spring in the bays.

I've fished Sakakawea once about 10 years ago and that was open water....any idea which bay(s)?

I've always fished the south side, but you could try many different bays and have luck. Beaver Bay is a good one to try and so is Renner. I caught a 45" pike in July pre-fishing for a tourney a few years ago near Beaver Bay. What a monster! I was alone in the boat and managed to net and release it by myself. No camera and the cell phone was dead so all I had for proof when I got back to camp was a 4' slime stain on the floor of my boat grin

If you want to stay close to a main highway than you could work some bays in the Garrison area on the east side of the lake where they've caught big fish in the past too.

    • 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?
