I have also tried the Slurpies brand, several different colors, methods, and different waters - still have yet to catch a fish with them. I primarily use Berkley Powerbaits with good success but thought i would give Slurpies a try. Like you said, they look like they would be effective - now the Slurpies are resting in the garage cabinet.

I am a big fan of the Lindy Munchies. I have caught a lot of fish on them, well over 1000 and they out-fished minnows up in Canada. I even have a 14 lbs walleye with them. With the "swim tails" you have to change the motion and keep them moving at all times, even if it is slowly on the bottom. I like the glow white with the light yellow tails on a Pink(shrimp) jig head. Chartruse colors work as always. I don't like the multi-colored grubs on the slurpies.

I never have used Slurpies yet. I figure this, some days you do not even catch a single fish on live minnows. So I would not give up on them just yet.

A close fishing buddy of mine has used them on the Miss. North and has had great success.

Good luck!

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
