Thanks for the pier reports. Guess I'll call it a season.

Late report but here’s a tank pike I caught a little while back. No tape on me but I think she’s close to, if not, 40. Biggest pike to date and caught right on campus! Ready to chase these gators through the ice once it’s locked up.

FYI on Spring Harbor from Madison Parks

SPRING HARBOR BOAT LAUNCH CLOSED: Due to flooding damage to the culvert and retaining wall area at the Spring Harbor Park boat launch, emergency construction repairs are immediately needed. Beginning Friday, October 26 the boat launch is closed and will remain closed until construction is completed. We anticipate the launch to reopen by January 1.

Pier in Spring Harbor is never pulled.  Iceup in the harbor is what ends that season, although I have broken it up on a few occasions.

Water down to 44 degrees, but I doubt the harbor iced yet.  I would definitely bring a bucket of sand/salt.

Hope you bag did not have any muskie lures.  people always ask why I pull all my gear from the boat when docking overnight, your situation is the answer.

Docks have been pulled at Warner, and the resurfacing is not done.

Went out to tenney park with a couple buddies to try for walleyes and I didn't get anything but one of my buddies got a short eye at about 16-17" and that was all that was caught. Also I would like to thank the a-hole that decided to steal my fishing bag with all my fishing tackle in it while I was fishing under the bridge in the locks and standing 20 feet away from my bag. All I have to say is that it takes some massive balls to do that and I hope I don't run into you out fishing anywhere.
