    I was lucky enough to pick up a 40V Strikemaster a couple of weeks ago. absolutely love it. but was trying to figure out how to transport/keep warm the batteries. well after a bit of searching, here is what i found at Fleet Farm. it is an Igloo sandwich bag. it is insulated. and has a zippered pouch on the front to store extra hand warmers.

    Moved up here last February, and just got into ice fishing. Haven't caught anything brag worthy, but I have been enjoying the different types of photographs I'm able to take that you just can't get during the warmer months. Just released a bluegill in this photo and the water was disturbed by the tail kick of the fish going back in.

    It sounds as though they have bigger issues than just mail delivery. "Trespassing could result in injury" the mail person is reading this and they are thinking they don't pay me enough to do this delivery.

    Totally agree these cold fronts and up and down weather patterns aren't the best but if you plan your fishing strategies, patterns and locations success can be accomplished. I rarely let the weather dictate my outings just have to plan and prepare for it accordingly. I look at this way if you live your outdoors life around the weather your not getting out as much as you should be. Id rather be putting a few topside versus watching the fishing shows do it but to each his own.

    James, I don’t know Mille Lacs real well but I’m pretty sure most resorts can accommodate what you’re looking for. The Warf is in a good area. I’ve gone out of Hunter’s Point and Appledorns in recent years. They would be worth a call. For walleye fishing it might be a draw on what is better. You might want to focus as much or more on who’s accommodations suit you best, like the bar/ restaurant. Price packages and such also. Just shooting from the hip here cuz like I mentioned, I haven’t been on the lake a bunch. Did you try the Mille Lacs forum?

    There are so many little untapped panfish lakes up there. I know pelican has some big fish but it gets much more pressure than the little lakes. It worth the time to use the dnr lake finder to see if lakes have gills and crappies in them. I spent 5 years in that area and caught plenty of big crappies and trophy sized gills. I never once went to pelican lake or elephant. I never was skunked when ice fishing for panfish up there.

    It’s a balmy -4 here in LF. Everyone is home from work and we’re packing the house. Should be limited on crappies with a few pike on top by sundown.

    I've fished tulibee in Frazer once and we caught a bunch. Unfortunately they all had lots of nasty looking white worms and had to be tossed. We did catch one whitefish and it was worm free and good eats. Deep water mud out from Thirty Six is where we got them.

    Resorts have parking areas on the ice for their customers wheelhouses to leave from one week to the next and I’ve seen many camper fish houses left on the ice for days-weeks. I think the only way you’d have an issue is if you got froze in as deep as the rim. Tires flex a lot and will free themselves pretty easily. I suggest not putting down a board if you’re not willing to chisel it out when you’re done with it.

    once you are off the road you can move around pretty well with fish house, I had no problems this last weekend with a 16 foot house.

    I saw these reports along the side of the road.....they don't appear to be fishing related though!

    I upgraded from my Little Buddy to a Portable Buddy (not a Big Buddy which seemed like over kill for a 2-3 man portable). I figured that would work best for my needs. Turns out I was right. The heater warmed my 949i enough that I could fish with my gloves off which was nice. I definitely noticed though as soon as a tank ran out, it got chilly quick since I had a few holes open to allow some fresh air in. My dad chickened out since he would be coming from WI and it was snowing over there still the roads were slick (as they were here also). Also made sense since we didn't know how well the shack would stay warm. So I stayed close to home. I was going to head to Cedar Lake near New Prague since it appears to have a healthy pan fish population to keep me entertained, but the guy I talked to at Prior Lake Bait & Tackle said Prior was a better bet, so I took his advice. I started fishing about 10 am after finding a spot and getting setup in about 20 FOW in the basin away from the crowds. I only managed to connect on a few dink perch, one that was borderline keeper size that I threw back just before heading home about 5:30. I didn't mark a single suspended fish in my spot. I drilled some holes in various depths not far from my shack but still didn't find any marks and got cold and headed back into my warm shack. I had a fathead on a tip up in case a hungry walleye came by but had no takers. A tip I heard recently was to hook them through the butt and out the side, which makes them sort of upside down which they hate so they continue to struggle and move in the water the whole time trying to right them selves. I dropped by camera down and watched this and it seemed to work to keep it moving, although I didn't catch anything so who knows if the fish actually like it.

    @donethat Where is this access you speak of? I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”. Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.

    Carb kit may help. It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked. Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

    Hello from the NW Angle! The bite remains consistent on the Minnesota side where we are fishing between 26 and 28 feet, yielding good walleye, sauger and jumbo perch. The dead stick will provide action early and throughout the day. Shallower depths are worth fishing early and late for quality walleye, a majority of which are in the slot. Up in Canada, big crappies are filling buckets via minnows, plastics and rip’n raps as well as, very light setups in 28-32 feet. Walleye fishing is outstanding near structure, either points or reefs. jig’n raps, buck shots or spoons have been productive. See you soon! Sunset Lodge

    We got the crappies but the pike avoided us. Thinking about what to catch for the next two days. I have some ideas....

    JL, If your heat is off and no one drills holes close to your house you should be ok. I had to move my house and a friends house just before the snow because they were starting to flood! Sure glad we did that before the storm!! Good road plowed out as far as Birch as of yesterday! If you see the guys plowing be sure to stop them and thank them with a $20 (thank you) donation!!! Cliff

    Well, after getting 9" or 10" of new snow last night the easy traveling conditions on Vermilion are now over. Combine this deep snow with the very hard drifts under it from earlier and there will certainly be a lot of stuck vehicles out there! We will probably also start to see a lot of slush show up! Cliff

    Finally! Had a chance to spear in clear water today out in Shoreview. 10 feet of water and I could see all the way to the bottom just like in the videos all you guys post. Of course, there were no 3 foot pike or muskies swimming by, just a skinny little one and a couple of bass, but it was still nice to actually see out around the hole into the silent watery world...

    The so-called Bullhead bay access is not public, It is privately owned and because of the dangers of thin ice and liability it is not an access to upper gull.

    Got on a small lake in the Bemidji area to chase after some BIG panfish. Snowstorm came through and made them finicky but managed to pull couple topside for a pic. 5mm Tungsten jig tipped with a Trigger X mustache worm did the trick! Probably my favorite fish to catch in the winter!
