Bob Too funny!
Those grabbers really save your hands from some toof marks!! Boga grips. I don't see them in any of your pictures on the Mn. HSOforum??
Do you guys use them, out there??

I have a less expensive Rapala I'm trying this year. Both Boga, and Rapala have scales built in them , too.
Rakes don't happen often but, this is the alternative:

I live my gripper. I always have it with me while ice fishing. It does not hurt the fish and it allows me to keep the fish in the water while I'm getting cameras ready for pictures. Here is a pic on mine with a lanyard.

I use the Berkley model. The Boga was a little out of my price range. I've had my Berkley for 3 years and have had no problems with it.I think they are around $30 or less. The Boga is $120 and up. I DO NOT like the Repala unit. It has some nasty teeth on it and it damages the fish.

Here is a video of a little pike and me using a gripper.

I was wondering about hurting the fish with the Rapala. All I lipped so far are Blues. It doesn't look to be harmed, but I never asked the fish after it swam away, either.

I promised myself I wouldn't post these pics again, just pics of new Pike I hope to catch this winter. Oh well, here they are one more time for you guys out east.

Hanson,
Nice fish. They look very healthy.

As a side note....Do you guys have any problems with Esocid Lymphosarcoma out there? We have seen some on Lake Champlain, but it seems like it was better in 2004 then it was in 2003. It does not kill that many pike, but muskie can take a real beating with it.

Erik,

First off, you have to have place to put your pictures on the internet, some sort of server like Shutterfly or something like that. Once you have that and you download your picturs onto that server, you need to highlight and copy the url address of the picture. You can find that if you right click on the picture and click on properties. Once you have the url copied than go back here and post a reply. In your reply you're going to want to place that url address (from the picture) inside  and . So you will get something like... url address that you copied. Then the picture should show up.

I hope this makes sense. If you have anymore questions then drop me an e-mail and I'll help you out.

Nice fish Joe,
Upper Red Lake and Mille Lacs come to mind for big pike.

Joe,

Yep, Mille Lacs holds a lot of big pike. Not a bad drive from where we are. South Center Lake also has a lot of big pike too, as does Minnetonka, Rush and Big Marine Lake. All have big fish potential.

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
