Fished 11 Mile on Saturday. -30 degrees at 6:30 am. Fished the North Shore area east of the store in 18 FOW. Since the DOW had recently released a bunch of stockers in the area we figured we may see some hogs cruising for an easy meal. Within a minute of putting my line in I set the hook on a monster bite only one problem, my reel was frozen the drag worked a little but my reel was locked up. I tried sticking the whole rig in the hole to losen it up, all the time I'm running out of line. I sure would have liked to have seen that fish. Tons of stockers in the area saw 6 pike in the 30-36" range caught and landed one. Quite a few good size Trout too, but The amazing thing was the Kokanee. schools and schools of Kokes in the area. By days end I had 1Koke 1Pike and 1 Rainbow. As others have reported the bite was a little slow but we sure saw a mess of hogs.

I tried to get up there to visit you around 10 AM but couldn't convince my daughter to go.

How was DeWeese?

What did you do with the pike?

Hey JL,

We never made it to DeWeese. Looks like this weekend. I went to 11 Mile with Bill, early Saturday am. He lost a giant right off the bat and then had a slow day. I got 2 nice fillets off of the pike each about an inch thick and about 18" long.

There sure were a lot of big Trout and Pike cruising the area we were in the North Shore spot you showed us last year. I went through a bunch of lures/colors/sizes trying to get the bigun's to bite. They would hang around and bump the lures but wouldn't bite. Bill and I saw at least 5 trout in the 5-8 lb range. Anyway I got what Bill refers to as the 11 Mile Slam 1 Trout 1 Pike and 1 Koke. (Just don't ask how big the trout was.

send me an email with your future Ice plans....
