Muskybug-

I hear you. I was on Potato on Saturday and got cold enough to feel like vomiting.

Just wanted give you an FYI on the muskie rule change, check out the post in the muskie forum. An attachment to that approval is a change allowing anglers to harvest trout in Blue Lake during the winter season which starts mid January.

You should be on holiday break pretty soon, eh?

NOt good. Two pike and blew two other fish. That's it. One of the fish I lost was a big one, but I presume another pike. We contemplated taking the boat over to Leech on Saturday for some muskies, but I think we're going to hit the ice instead.

thanks for the update on blue. I was wondering when the rule change would finally go through. I'll ask Doug about it on Monday when I call him.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      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.
