we had a ok day on sat.weheaded to the Dam and started to pitch ikes hair jigs tipped with a minnow.we worked the rip rap along both shore lines caught a limit of fish mixed between walleye and sauger.I also tried a ikes 3/8 0z sonar and caught a couple of fish.as the water cools the bite will get better.the biggest thing we found was to have alot of time so you can work the whole area.for more info call IKE or stop at the store when you get to red wing. GOOD LUCK IKE.

Was out on Sunday and bite was kinda slow tried a hair jig by the dam with no results. Not much of a current so switched to a jig tipped with a minnow under a slip bobber, next to a downed tree and pulled a few crappie. Was a nice save cause the first half of the day we were skunked. As Ike said leave the schedule open for that day, put in your time and versatility is key.

Yeah, we did pretty well with the walleyes on saugers as well by Lock 4... Just casting Rapalas # 5 ... Plain and simple, but it worked well for us that day.

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
