Sort of had a light show this morning and a little rumble but the eyes were bitting had my limit in the box by 7:30, spent the next two hours trying to upgrade one sauger, ran bottom bouncers with spinners but couldn't seem to find any bigger than 15 1/2 to replace my smallest, got a few smallies and one heck of a big sheep, all eyes came out of 12-20 fow on crawlers! Had a blast!! cool.gif

I was down there Sat. morning and did pretty well. 5 eyes, 3 sauger, a big crappie, cattie, a rockbass, several smallies......and probibly the biggest walleye of my life! I've never got one in the 30" range, but I think I had one on. It hit like a snag, like most where doing, and as I turned the boat around with the troller it took off! I didn't think it was too big at first, but after a few hard runs I was loosening my drag in respect. I got it up off the bottom and within a few feet of the boat,once, and with a flash of his tail he was GONE! The rig busted at the loop to the swivel. I was sadd... and I still am. Ohh well maybe next time. I'll be up north this weekend but I can't wait to try the river again.

I was fishin a worm harness, no spinner or float, just a bead w/ a nightcrawler. Found fish from 13-28 fow, with 16-24 fow being the best for walleye. Most fish seemed to be in concentrated areas and they would hit it hard once and hold it. The 2 walleye I kept where both hooked deeply in the throat with atleast one of my hooks, and I wasn't giving them much line.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
