Mostly depends on how precise you are with boat controll. 1/4 to 3/8 should do you just fine. 1/4 oz if you are drifting and 3/8 oz if you are anchored.

Good Luck

Like Mike said grin.gif 1/4 oz works best on MN side but I found a 5/16 to be better on the WI side. Current seam was just a hair faster. Best color jighead for me was green and chartreuse. You don't need to be exactly vertical as the fish are just smacking baits right now. Not subtle at all.

Me and a buddy were down sat. and sun. Sat. we caught over 80 saugers and wallys even with the snow and all the boats. nothing big as wallys go but did get a 30.1lb flat head. Sun not as good fish were alot shallower most fish came from less then 10 FOW . Charchruse was our best with a motor oil and charchruse tail ring worm. But took 2/3 the worm off for the lite biters.

God Bless

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
