Fished oak hard the last three years open and hard water can be tough for eyes of any good size in winter. Use large minnows or the little perch will suck ya dry.

Do you think the ice is ok for wheelers?? I have fished lakes north of duluth and they are ok. Are there any springs in that lake?

8 northerns smallest was 3 pds. largest was 37" close to 12 pounds i'd guess. The rest were in the five pd range. Sure had a blast with those gators. 2 small walleyes 1 crappie, and a ton of small perch. Great day on a new lake!! I'll be going back.............. wink.gif

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      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.
