Myself and the Waskish Minnow Station team are pumped for ice season! Some pics from last year to get revvevvevved up for making holes in the ice. Early season pike trips are just a few cold nights away and then onto crappie chasing/walleye hunting and the big bang at the end in March with crappies every where and dandy perch. I can't stand it, it needs to freeze!

Am I ready? Yup. Finished off charging the deep cycles (amazing how much bright the lights are on a full battery). All the goodies are inside except malt beverages and ready to microwave Mexican food.

I had planned earlier to pull the house back over on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but given the price of gas I'll just wait until first ice.

I agree, follow Hanson!! Then my house wont have shacks set-up 10-Feet from the front door. Kelly, I think you guys should start painting layers on your houses everyother day...just like in the old movies when the bank robbers would peel of the paint from the getaway car. grin.gif

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
    • eyeguy 54
      I did till about 2 then just had to go for a bit. LOL 
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
