12/15 fishing report

The Bite

Off of Jr's Access follow the road out to 7-10 feet of water. The morning bite is from 7:30 to 9:00 while the evening bite is 4:00 to 6:00. The bite continues day and nite in the usual waves. The bite has been moderate to good. Walleye are most pelentiful followed by pike. So far the Crappie bite has been nonexsistant. The crappie bite is very typical for this time of year. They should begin to show up in 12-14 feet of water as soon as the lake sees some more pressure.

The Ice

We have a very different ice situation from last year. Areas with little or no snow have up to 14 inches. Areas with heavy snow cover have as little as 8 inches. Most folks will be fine in a small truck or car if they stay on the marked road. Most houses were pulled off of the access on Thursday morning to prevent drifting in the prime walleye areas. The goal of pulling the houses was to maintan a good sheet of Ice.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      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!
