    Default New to area and love chasing esox lucious

    Hello everyone, I have been checking out this forum for awhile now and decided to take part. I moved up here this past summer and therefore am very green on local lakes. I have been watching this forum and reading other info on pike fishing. As of now I don't really know anybody up here that shares my enthusiasm for getting after some pike. I was wondering if any one is looking for a fellow pike fisherman? I am open for any suggestions that anyone is willing to give on locations. Also what is good source for finding out when the trails are open in the Nancy lake system?

    happy fishing, flag up

    I'll look you up in October 2008 when I get to Anchorage. I love fishing northerns and can't wait to start doing it up there.

    I haven't been in there yet this winter but unless there's a major overflow problem it should be pretty easy to snowmachine into Red Shirt Lake.

    Good Luck

    You didn't say where you are but I assume that it is south central. Go to the fish and game web page, http://www.adfg.state.ak.us/ , and look up invasive pike in south central, http://www.sf.adfg.state.ak.us/regio...pikewaters.cfm Any lake that is listed probably has good pike populations. You can find lake maps at, http://www.sf.adfg.state.ak.us/State...Data/index.cfm which will give you an idea of lake size and depth.

    I like to fish period regardless of species, but I have yet to target pike this winter. I had great success in several of the nancy lake state rec area lakes this past summer. I stayed in cabin #2 on Lynx lake and found abundant pike. If you are in the Anchorage send me a PM and we can hit one of the local lakes for Pike.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    Default Pike fishing

    there are at least 3 threads going, maybe 4, concerning Pike fishing in the valley. do a little reading and you'll get location access, depths to fish, bait type and sometimes invite for fishing partners. use this link to see updates on the Nancy lake trail system.

    Default Thanks everyone

    I just wanted to say thanks to those of you who replied. Having good folks giving helpful information is sure nice and helps me figure things out here a lot quicker. I have been to game and fish and have the list of lakes with pike populations. I figure I will just start hitting the hard water and see what I can find.

    onthefrinj, That was a pig of pike you caught recently, congrats
    MNviking, no problem, look me up in October always room for a fellow pike fisherman.
