Hitman, you missed out.

I went to that lake we discussed on the phone, went straight out from the public access, past the permanet house to the edge of the 15 break. Sat with on hole in 15 and the next hole in 12. I got 3 nice eyes about 15" or so. Using Haily rockers with fatheads. Also saw the inside of a Pikes mouth as he took a shot at my perch camera head. The ice was a little spotty out there, I drilled several test holes and found anywere from 3-7". Guy at Bud's said some one got a 31" eye on Saturday, says they brought him in a photo for proof.

Too bad you had to play Dad today, maybe next week.

Pauly --

It is the story of my life, day late and a dollar short.

Glad you had fun.

My scout training meeting didn't get done till almost 7 p.m. and ate supper with the family at 7:30 when i got home.

It was a bad Sunday, had to work in the morning -- Missed the Vikes game, missed sledding with the kids, missed snowmobiling and ice fishing with my buddies and had to sit through nearly five hours of Cub Scout training --ish.

What we do for our kids ... So you caught fish bigger than 10 inches eh, can I be your friend? wink.gif

      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!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
