Well, LBS, how did it go for you? Tough, tough bite. We scraped up 4 fish, but one place out of the money (5th)...

I believe there were only 29 boats in the tourney.

We caught ours trolling cranks.

We did very well Friday... Couple 4 pounds and some smaller ones. Saturday we did catch a thing. we are not set up for long distance trolling. By the sounds of it that is what it took sat. to pick anything up.

What do you mean by long distance trolling?? Can you please explain it a little further. I've been there the last three weekends and have put in about 10 hours on the water with one 15" walleye to show for it, so to hear they can be caught there at least makes me wanna go try it again.

Thanks

pull a #7 to #11 floater 225-250 feet back...

225-250 feet is "Long Distance Trolling"

It's actually called "long line trolling".

To me it is Long Distance... I like things up close and personal. That friday I was hooking walleye 10 to 20 feet from the boat, and had to fish the hooks out of their throat. After tough fishing that Saturday I will be setting up some long line trolling rigs...

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
