tipup,

The Zumbro is a scary one to learn via ice. Knowing the current flows, and channels are nice as with that knowledge you also know where the thin ice may be.

I've only heard 2nd hand that people have ventured out of Grandpa Eds, spudding every step. I don' think they made it far, but they did fish according to my source.

The middle of the lake seems to be the place everybody wants to get to, but it's also the toughest as there is no easy way to get there, and it's a long walk from whichever angle you come from.

I have not ventured out there yet, but I've heard the ice is looking pretty good. There is some 4-wheeler travel out there and I think some of the smaller perm shacks are in their traditional areas.

Friday, Sat, and Sunday will be my maiden voyages out there.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
