Well, my dad and I got out for the first time this year ('bout time). didn't do too bad for this early in the year. water is still a litlle cold, 38-40 degs. for pike. should get better in the next couple of weeks. we did manage to get 5 toothy critters. most we can remember catching in a day. largest was just under 7 lbs. 30 ins. caught some on live bait, some on lures.
