Red Lake ice-out very close; maybe tomorrow

Ken Chipongian caught and released this 42-inch pike
Most of the big bays on Red Lake are becoming free of ice. We heard from Hugh Carlson of Viking Island Lodge that we could almost make it to town by boat today. He thought it would be possible tomorrow (Thursday).
Many of you have asked how fishing has been. We have caught lots of very big pike such as the one caught and released by Ken Chipongian in the photo above. It has been a banner week for big pike. So far, however, not one walleye has been caught or lake trout. Mind you, not too much effort has been put toward those species. Pike fishing is just too spectacular. Almost all the big pike are being taken on dead bait.
