I was out there this past weekend. I was fishing shoreline structure, and the ice was a good 4 1/2 inches, but that snow really caused some stress. I would use extreme caution if ur headed out to the middle of the lake, due to the fact that it looked like there was either open water or a big pressure ridge. I wasn't feelin balsy on a lake that I have little experience on, so I stuck close to shore.

Has the ice improved on Jewett yet? Have they been biting? I was thinking of givin' it a try this weekend. Any suggestions on how to approach getting on the ice?

Be alittle careful out there. I was out there last night, with my fourwheeler and small fishhouse. There were two pickups parked next to each other in one spot, and I was moving around punching holes looking for a spot, and in one area the auger blade barely turned and I was through the ice. Couldn't have been more than 3".

Just use alittle caution and check the ice to know what you're driving over.

Thanks for the update BBP! It sounds a little scary. I've been sticking to the river here at the head waters. The ice is good, but the fishin has been hit and miss. I've been wanting to make it out to Jewett, but I was waiting for an ice update. I think I might have to try another lo-cal. So the ice was bad, how was the fishin'?

Fishing was alittle slow as well.

I'll be heading to Otter Tail for awhile.

Good Luck Fishing!

I was out there last weekend, ice is real thick 15-18 inches, got skunked but saw 1 eye and a perch on camera, so there is fish there.

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      I can get to everything except ICE. You guys too?

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
