Wondering if anyone has been into lake george this year yet?? We are thinking of making a run on Friday. I've never been there but my buddy has fished it once before. Just trying to catch a dang northern pike or two so i can have some for pickling for the rest of the winter. I've fished Scout lake twice this winter with only one hit on the tip ups and no fish. Never though I would have to work this hard to catch a dang Northern coming from Wisconsin.
Anyways if we head down I'll report back by Monday and I'm sure we'll stop in at Birch and Harding and at least make an ice depth check. Thanks for any reports or ideas to you guys have for catching some Northerns around North Pole.
p.s. Whats the deal with no live bait in AK? Been using minnows forever in WI and MN. Still yet to see a lake "taken over" by golden shiners. I guess the waters are too pristine. Wouldn't want to give the Pike something to eat besides the trout so we can poison lakes.
