**Ice Update and Spearing Report** With temps dipping below zero, conditions were ideal for ice development. We had a number of groups reporting 8 inches of ice in the southwest corner on the river channel where the Mississippi comes in to Winnie. Clarity was excellent at 6'. With the Winnie dam being wide open clarity on Bowens Flats wasn't as good. A nice number of northerns were brought in with several groups having their limits. We received about 7" of snow on Saturday. Current conditions on the main lake out in front of us are 4 inches of clear ice, some slush with the snow on top. Use caution when out on early ice. Feel free to call the lodge at 800-365-2560 for up to date ice information.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
