How thick is your ice on Pulaski. I have only found about 10". But I may have a short ruler. How far are you from the public access?

I was finding 12-13" of ice off the landing to the north as of yesterday. Drilled holes anywhere from 14' to 45'.

Bass_Bully What north access are you talking about? The only public access is on the so8uth side of Pulaski.

Jim, I think he was going out of the south access and drilled his holes to the north of it. At least thats what I took him to mean.

K Dawg, you fishing with the small croup of houses to the northwest? This year is the most houses I have seen on Pulaski in the 5years I have lived in Buffalo.

No. I don't think being in with the crowd helps your chances. I found my own spot. Its crazy how many houses are out there this year. I'll be out this aft.

Fished little pulaski the other nite, not a single bite, marked very little. Lots of houses have left the bay.

little pulaski seems to be a very good early ice spot. then it dies down fast.

Jim that was about the same thought I had when I drove by the access the other day. I'm trying to decide if thats because the ice formed real nice out there or if there's a lot of new people to Pulaski this year.

Most of the guys are fishing 35-45ft of water. Sound like not being caught from what I have seen.

The lake is fine to drive on. Stay on the roads and you'll be OK. I drove around the entire shoreling with no problems. One spot, west side, just south of West Pulaski Park, there's a spring there. Stay away from shore in that area.

I was out last Sunday night and did horrible, I was out by that sunken Island about a quarter mile north of the landing. I went all around it anywhere from 12-24' but found nothing. I am having [PoorWordUsage] luck this year on the ice!!!! Everywhere!!

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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!
