I was at North Point on saturday fishing with my son and we watched this guy pull this big Northern out of the ice. It was pretty cool indeed for me as well as my little boy. He will remember it for a long while. You should have seen his eyes when that fish came out of the hole. Here is the story in yesterday's Suntimes with a cool photograph.

I guess it was a bangs lake record unfortunately. :x
Can you stop please. This is the "Lake Michigan" forum and I made this post because I saw the guy catch the fish and I thought it was pretty cool. I also thought it was cool when I got home from work and seen it in the paper. This post is about North Point and the guy I met who caught the fish was named Don. The suntimes article is easy to follow and I don't understand why some are having a problem. :roll:

Thanks guys. I have been lurking for a year and thought I would share a little info. This is my first thread and I didn't like the way it was going. Thanks also to Legend025 for adding additional info to help clear things up. :)

No Problem Ice Crazy... I might hit North Point Marina sometime soon before ice-out for when those big girls come in to spawn... They gotta stack up on some meals before they spawn! :wink: You do any pike fishing out there much?

Heck, are you kidding? I would have never beleived there were Northern to be caught there and was very surprised when a Pike popped out, (I thought it was probably a Brown). :shock: If it weren't for the background in the photo, alot of other guys wouldn't believe it either, (but you can clearly see it's North Point in the photo). http://blogs.suntimes.com/bowman/2009/0 ... f_the.html

I am definitely bringing tip-ups this weekend. What should I buy for bait? Don had a 7" dead Smelt and it looked way too big?
