Re: 2019 Pike Tally

Went out Pike fishing 2 nites ago. Ended up going by myself and had a ruff nite with all kinds of problems. The only thing that did go right was the fish were biting. In the first 10 mins. I hooked into a really good fish. There was a bunch of people camped near where I was fishing and I didn't want...

Pike in Lake Washington? Pike in the Clearwater river in Idaho?

According to this website below there are Pike in Lake Washington and Banks lake in Wash. state, and Pike in the Clearwater river in Idaho? Which is news to me and if so why is the game dept's not up in arms about it as they are in the P.O. and Columbia rivers. I think they have their facts wrong bu...

Re: 2019 Pike Tally

Sad to say I have not been able to get out and do any pike fishing in the last couple weeks. This weather has all my normal winter Pike waters froze solid!!! Even the P.O. river below Newport is froze from shore to shore and that I have NEVER seen before in my 25 years of fishing it. It is also froz...

Re: Priest Lake Idaho / Flathead Lake Montana guides / camping recommendations

Are you looking for info to ice fish this time of year or for next spring? Priest has good lake trout if that's what your after and there is a nice campground at Indian Creek State park on the east side of the lake. It has a good boat launch and some good mack spots within a mile or the launch.

You buy a can of peas. You drill a hole in the ice. You place a ring of peas around the hole.,

"An invasive species may not be possessed, imported, purchased, sold, propagated, transported, or released into state waters except as provided in RCW 77.15.253." It does say 'released'.

Re: MOre Pike Propoganda??

From CDA press; Designating pike a prohibited species requires that anglers kill pike as soon as they are caught, and it makes transporting live pike illegal. This is more out and out lies that F&G dish out. Nowhere does it say in the laws that you have to kill pike that are legally caught and rele...
