THERE ARE A LOT OF BIG BASS LAKES IN OUR AREA, IF I HAD TO CHOOSE ONE IT WOULD BE A DIVERSE FISHERY WITH BOTH A GOOD SHAD BASE AS WELL AS CRAWFISH AND OTHER FOOD SOURCES ONE THAT RECIEVES LITTLE ANGLING PRESSURE (AT LEAST FOR BASS)ON THAT ISN'T PRONE TO WINTERKILL AND THUS CAN SUSTAIN MANY YEAR CLASSES OF FISH.

THE CANNON RIVER/TETONKA WATERSHED HAS ALL OF THAT AND HAS BEEN KNOW TO KICK OUT SOME REAL PIGS CANNON LAKE IS VERY UNDER FISHED FOR LARGEMOUTH AND I HAVE SEEN NUMORUOS FISH OVER 6-6.5 # RANGE CAUGHT THERE HOW EVER THEY ARE FAR AND FEW BEETWEEN SO LOCATING ACTIVE FISH THERE CAN BE TOUGH. HOWEVER I HAVE SEEN ONE OVER 7 THIS YEAR AND ONE JUST UNDER @ 6.95 JUST A THOUGHT....

There were some real pigs too. Some were around 17". You could see them hitting the surface, throw your bait (Sasie shad) into the boil and WHAM. One right after the other.

Blue bird skys tomarrow. You should have been there today. grin.gif

I would find a lakes with good Bass populations that are to small for Bass turnies. Work one and move to the next.

This year I have cought Sm Mouth Bass as far up the Cannon River as Gorman Lake. More and More and More Bass Lakes every year!

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
