Hey -- you guys get out yet? Have not heard much out of you fellers (been listening to Larry the Cable Guy too much).

What is the scoop?

Haven't been out yet....some of us have to work grin.gif

I have taken all of next week off so I will have 11 days off starting tonight at about 5:00 wooooohoooooo.

Hope to get out and hit the ice, might go down and check out the ice/slush situation tomorrow morning. And may try and hit either Leif or Little D next week with the youngens to try and get them on some fast and furious gills. Incidentally, has anybody been on Leif yet? How is the ice??

See you out there Hitman, bring some beer... grin.gif

I talked to a guy last weekend that said he was driving out on Leif. He said there was 12 inches of ice out there and that was last week. He was driving a heavy duty Ford so if you have something smaller than that I would think you should be fine.

Thanks for the info huntnfish, I'd probably take the wheeler anyway. Guess I'm getting chicken in my old age.

I know I still wouldn't drive out there with all the snow and inconsistent ice. The water is way too cold to be going for a swim this time of year.

Lida has about 12 inches of ice... people have been driving on it for about two weeks.

      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!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
