Shakopee is still a very productive fishery.The average size of the pike is much smaller (about 2 lbs), but I did witness a solid 10+ pounder come through the ice last winter. The panfish have been been hit or miss, but lots of them in there. My last trip out I saw hundreds with my camera, but the baramoter had them so negative they didn't even show curiosity in my offerings.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
