Anyone still fishing?

7 posts in this topic

A friend and I got out last night after the storm blew through to troll cranks for a eyes on one of the local lakes. Ended up catching a few nice eyes between 17.5"-27". Most were in the low twenty inch range. Here's me with the big eye of the night caught on our last pass before heading in to get a little sleep before work.

A few boats out there but pretty light pressure. The panfish bite is going strong as well.

Nice fish Borch, thanks for sharing.

I think I'll take the boat out one last time to run the stabil through the lines, motor so I can put it in storage.

I just got the snowblower from my father in law, so you know what is around the corner wink.gif

      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.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      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.
