you do good on baxter there Oz? I did fairly well about 3 years ago catching sunfish on first ice. Haven't been there since. I assume still the same catch going on there. Joe Guimont claims he has a crappie hole that were are going to on Sat. Will let you know where when I find out.

didn't put much time into it last year as the bite was better on the colored lakes in the area. I know this freezes early and has had a sheet for about a week so I will go out on Sat morn and start drilling 100 holes!!...Give me a call BIFF

Stopped by the bait shop east of Princeton and was told Baxter had 2"-6" on it. The wind opened up Green and Spectacle last night. However, I drove by both at 2:30pm and Green was locked up and Spectacle still had a little open water in the middle.

the flat access on blue the ice in that area looked solid last weekend before the storm but the steep access the main lake was open a day or 2 before the snow so tread carefully there..........baxter as far as last weekend looked you could go anywhere..it has been locked for about 2 weeks now.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
