Way to go spoxick, dandy big pike. ;D
Nice going speckspotter as well.  @)

Good to hear you found some fish shawno & Jpicks.  :)
I am surprised that you guys found no burbot at Pelican Ponte'. :o
I wonder what is up with the burbot this year?

Did any one get into any decent numbers of burbot this year at LML? ???

I tried LML in the Rowan's Ravine area, a few times in March, but, only iced 1 burbot.
I seen some on the came each time out, but, not as many as in past years.
The ones I did see were on a mission of their own and barely gave my lures or baits a 2nd glance.
I did ice some decent pike and a bonus whitefish though, so all was not lost.

Full fishin' reports for my season to come in a bit. ;)

See you on MyFishFinder!

Yeah not a one WW...

We were shocked too.  Must be the timing this year with the coldsnap in Feb.  I'm guessing the spawn hasn't happened yet.  There is open water on the point, so be careful if you head out there.

Hoping to get in a Last Mountain trip before the 31st. Hopefully the Burbs show up. Any word on access at Midway?

Followed up my 41in from Thursday with this healthy 38"  and even got 3 suprise whitefish in 10 min  while pounding sand with a 3 inch spoon and a chunk of smelt for the burbs!   I've only had 2 whites before today.    The burbs still seem behind.   Got 4 today all still full of eggs and Milt.     The ice is rotten pretty much  all the way through on Lml. Comes out like broken tempered glass and cuts like butter with water most of the depth through. Some quads driving around still. Check out my page and give it a follow if you like.   Icefish'n Addiction  on Fbook or insta

I had a great day walking out at Pelican Point yesterday afternoon staying until one of our treasured sunset, which we should all try not to take for granted. Although I wasn’t gifted with catching my targeted fish, a burbot, I came across one that was unfortunately caught and left to perish on the ice. Why would anyone do this? Burbot is a delicious fish. It provides a balance to our delicate lakes. A true fisher realizes this and will hopefully do what they can to avoid these situations.

It's still not right.   But we've come a long way since I was a kid the piles of burbs and Cisco's that used to be left on the ice.

Here’s a summary of our last 4 weeks of the spring pike bite. All but the two small ones went back to swim another day.

Hi all,

Just checking to see if anyone usually keeps track of when the ice has melted on Last Mountain? I work in a lab at the UofR and I'm hoping to sample the lake as soon as it's possible to get out with a boat, guessing that will be about mid to late April?  I'm planning to use the Rowan's Ravine boat launch.

Thanks!
