i have been catching walleyes on potato in 18 to 24 feet on north end humps with crawlers on a 16th oz. jig. redtails have been working as well. don't know about little mantrap but i would assume that you could pile up bass and crappies if you wanted to put in some time. As far as muskies go this week i anticipate will be very busy on Mantrap, still worth some time in my opinion but i might try to get out there after dark. Jonah

Just spent the labor day weekend fishing potato, fish hook, and little man trap, fishing was horrible. We didnt get any walleyes, or largemouth believe it or not, we fished everything, deep, weedlines, humps, with red tails, and worms. Talked to many people and had the same reports as well. Good luck.

My father did pretty well all weekend on fish hook for walleyes with crawlers. He had at least 3 walleyes each day as well as a number of bass. He did say he really had to work for them, fish were caught in 19 fow. Jonah

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?

      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx

      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
