I was out to Sunset point yesterday. Went about 300 yards or more towards Hwy 8 and punched at least a dozen holes. Average Ice was around 4 to 5 inch. Worst part is the slush under the snow makes travel with equipment hard. The fish yesterday were pretty neutral. Lots of lookers but few takers.

Talked to a co-worker that lives on South Center, "Hazelton Bay". He saw 4 wheelers on ice over weekend. I will try by Pancake Island this Saturday. I will walk out until I'm sure it is safe. Will report back.

Was out this morning. Not great action but managed a few keeper sunfish. Found 10.5" of ice where I was fishing. Did find some spots of double ice and some water on top but for the most part, the ice as pretty good.

Walligator you should be fine going anywhere on the lake with a wheeler. Last weekend me and some friends were cruising around different spots all over the lake. I might be out there on sunday. If you see a new blue honda rubicon with custom wheel thats lifted it's, me feel free to say hello. I will be out there quite a bit this year.

Was out last night an MAN has it been slow this year. Not one bite last night and I tried everything!

A buddy I was out with said last night he got 8 nice walleyes on tip ups ranging from 20-26.5 inches. I seen him catch one and it was only about 16-17 inches.

Brite side of things Ice is still pretty good.

Was out today and there was plenty of slush/water on the ice. Fishing was good until the snow stopped and the temps started to fall. Seen some really nice pike get caught!

Good Luck, ole

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
