No saugers for us today but, we did catch a few nice ones. The fish went like this for weight, a few smaller ones and a 5,7.5,9.5 and a 10.5 pounder. We also lost a one other pig and had a few sheephead and white bass. All on jigs and minnows.

We were fishing out of an older Lund. Just two of us. I did miss one right where the white PVC pipe comes down into the water. It looked like a nice spot. I saw alot of fish on the depth finder at that spot. 14'-16' deep.

T,O I saw those Big Eye pic the other day. It's good to see there are some big eyes in the area.

The pig sauger have been biting well the last few weeks. I have boated several in the 21-22" range. Look for deep water.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
