We spent the morning and early afternoon on Sarah...caught 2 bullheads on our walleye gear!.....everyone we talked to was having similar luck. Fished Yankton until 4:30 PM...caught a fat 6" perch, bullhead and snagged a carp...resident there said fish quit when lake gets green...guess what color it is? Same guy also told us Rock Lake would be a good bet...so we went to Shetek...where the "pleasure"(lake despoiler) boats outnumbered the fishing boats by about 100 to 1...was obvious why. Only good thing was Twins beat MotorCity Kitties 11 to 1.

Went to Rock last night with my 4 year old son, didn't get to fish a lot but it didn't sound too good from the other people I talked to. Caught a couple of catfish while jigging but the water was pretty green. Nobody missed a whole lot on Rock last night.

      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

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
