Re: 2019 Pike Tally

I ice fished Killarney and Hayden Lake this winter with no success. Have picked up a pair of 6 pounders and lost another at shore at Roosevelt. So off to a slow start also. Gill nets everywhere in the bays, mouth of Kettle River, Colville River, etc. They move them around every few days. Big article...

Re: Ice Auger Hayden Ice?

Anyone know if there is safe ice (3 inches) on the north end of Hayden Lake?
There was only one inch of ice for 30 feet out from shore and 3 inches thereafter on Killarney last Thursday. Very touchy. Zero pike

Re: 2019 Pike Tally

Mark, you can save a lot of wear and tear on your arms by just ice fishing for pike.
You buy a can of peas. You drill a hole in the ice. You place a ring of peas around the hole.,
When the big pike comes up to take a pea.....YOU GRAB HIM! [laugh]

Re: 2019 Pike Tally

My goodness, Rick, who needs muskies when we could have an equal self-sustaining fishery of monster pike!!!!
Canada can't produce fat pike like that.

Re: MOre Pike Propoganda??

Thanks for some clarification on releasing pike in Washington, Fish-N-Fool. The Colville tribe pays a $10 bounty on pike caught in Roosevelt if you put their head and photo in a provided freezer package. I've always wanted to take a pic of me releasing a pike, then put the pic and a 10 dollar bill i...

Re: 2018 Pike Tally

Mark,
finally got a little tutoring for posting pics with paint and attached my personal best pike mentioned last July. I have muskies up to 27lbs but can't crack the 20lb pike yet.

Re: 2018 Pike Tally

spent a week in Minnesota couple weeks ago chasing pike and muskies. Alas, the 20s to 40s temps and winds up to 26 MPH every day buried the targets into the weeds and I came up with only 11 pike--best 5lbs x 28 inches-- and zero muskies. So I have a miserly 14 on the year. :-({|=

Re: 2018 Pike Tally

Fished chain lakes last weekend. Caught just 3 pike in 3 days but did get a personal best with a nice
15 pounder. It had a deformed bent down tail making it probably 39" straightened out. Pretty slow but
the big guy made it worthwhile. I have a pic but it tells me the file is too large

Re: 2018 Pike Tally

that's a mighty fine accomplishment, Rick. it's certainly rewarding when one's diligent searching pays off. I'm heading to the chain lakes today for 3 days of
piking. They were amazed by the pics and wanted me to ask you what lake you got those?

Re: 2018 Pike Tally

My oh my, that's a beauty. Congrats. You know I've fished my favorite fish--pike--for 68 years and not one over 20 lbs yet. The good lord will not take me out
until I achieve that. I may live forever!!

Re: 2018 Pike Tally

Well, Mark, you are rolling in the pike this spring. I've pulled about 42 walleyes out of Roosevelt so
far but they are food fish; not fun fish. I hope to get to Idaho after the 4th and do some 'reel' fishing.

Fished Hayden Tuesday and got on the 2018 talley with a little 23". Tried Killarney Thurs but its flooded out and almost twice its usual size so nothing. Tried Hayden again in the pm and nothing except a couple bass. Things remain springtime tough. Forget Roosevelt in the Kettle Falls area. The Kett...

Re: 2018 Pike Tally

thanks for getting us going for 2018, Mark. I've tried pike a couple times bank fishing Roosevelt to no avail. There were 6 settings of gill nets on each the north and south shores of the inlet to the mouth of the Colville River set by.....?. So no luck there. Hopefully that will not affect that pop...

Squeezed in a boat day on chainlakes K yesterday before freezeup. Managed a couple of 20's......no, inches; not pounds, darn. Pretty slow. But did get a sharp hit coming into dock. So hard I inadvertently hit thumb bar before I set the hook. line went limp and I thought at first he bit off my steel ...

Re: 2017 Pike tally

Good for you. There are some left in the lake after all. I was going to go on the nice Friday weather day but got the stomach flu instead [sad] Looks like I am destined for ice fishing after all.
