I don't know about anybody else but I'm getting fired up for ice fishing. Something good has to come from this cold.

I'm with you guys! I am sick of soft water!

By the way, if I don't see any of you either out there or in the room, I hope you and your families have a Happy Turkey Day. See you on the ice!

I love ice fishing but I'm holding out for at least one more soft water trip over the Thanksgiving weekend if the weather holds. After that let it freeze fast and clear!

What are some lakes that have produced in the past during early ice around the st. cloud area??

Last year was good on Pleasant Lake in Annandale. The same breakline provided pretty consistent action for crappies, sunfish, bass and northern. Lots of small sunfish to sort through if the bait of choice was not a minnow. Crappies, bass and northerns were all gobbling up the minnows though without the nuisance of sunfish. Sunfish were great to keep the kids (and impatient adults) busy while waiting for something bigger to take the minnows!

I also did pretty good on Pleasant, but I focused on the walleye. I'll be there again asap.

The only thing good with the first cold snap is a running nose, sore throat, and a bad cough grin.gif

I'm over with the above and ready for another year of ice!

I have the itch too! I find myself frequenting the local outdoor shops and spending a ton of time looking at hardwater gear. Thank goodness ( for the wallet sake) I have been resisting my impulses.

However, for now the rivers have been keeping me entertained grin.gif

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?

      Grindstone is stocked in the spring, I think also in the fall. Many trout survive a 2nd and 3rd year.

      I caught a bunch years ago and they were just fine. Fried hem up back then.  They have a dandy flavor.  I have a bunch more that I froze and will throw some in the peanut oil soon.
