Well,as I type right now Im waiting for this early AM storm to pass by.Looks like a pretty good light show is heading this way.Will be looking for fish in the Bayport area this morning.I dont anticipate the weather to hurt fishing,Its not a cold front.From what I saw yesterday up in the Osceola area,we may see the Croix rise some more in the next week.Im a little suprised it hasnt gone up more already with all the rain we have had lately.Good luck this weekend to all,Ill post my findings today when I return..

Today didnt go to bad,found eyes in 18-20fow early on but could only get them to go on crankbaits.Tried rigging and jigging in the same area with no success.Headed south of the 94 bridge to try my luck down stream but drew a blank.The water down south of the 94 bridge was much clearer than up river.You can see the difference as soon as you hit the Hudson nowake.Surface temps ranged from 62 to 66 today.Silvers as usual are commiting suicide.....Good luck out there.........

I couldn't believe how much the river has risen in the last couple of weeks. Saw plenty of walleys and smallies on the camera in 12 - 15 feet but they where pretty tight lipped! Managed a couple of crappies and a bunch of rock bass before the sun went down. It was almost the perfect evening on the river!!

Made it out from 10-2, couldn't keep the crappie off the minnows. Got a couple small sauger on the deadstick trying something different - tied a clown husky jerk rigged on a 3 way 4 ft off the bottom. Ran into a guy at Boomsite launch that got an 11 lb eye north of Stillwater while checking out the fall colors with his wife. He said he got it on a stick bait as well.

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!
