Roberds Report

7 posts in this topic

Was out from 3-6 today, measured 10-11 inches where we were. Didn't measure other areas but there were several cars and light trucks out. My buddy caught 1 9.5" crappie and a 16" eye. I came home empty handed. Marked quite a few fish early then tapered off fast around dark.

I was out in the new fish trap yukon, finally got set up about 4, kept 3 crappies & a 19" eye that came on a tip-up in 12' of water, with a JB-Gemneye, pink/glow. Crappies were on neon glow jigs, sweedish pimple, and a buckshot spoon with a minnow-head. Be back out early all day, come say hi, I'll have blue ice-armor in a fish trap yukon. Probly something on the grill 2 grin.gif

Just got home, shoulda brought the net 2day! Got out late & missed the morning rush, so we HAD 2 capitalize on the evening bite. Went serching 4 pannies during the mid-day, caught a few & 4sure got my exercise in! Set up WAY WAY WAY away from the main group in 9fow, & after chasing dogs that stole the "grill fair" for the day, we were set up. First bite was a tip-up on a Gemneye, and i missed it. Second was my buddy on a bobber which was an eye that he lost in the hole. Then down went my bobber, hooked it, then just like my buddies came off in the hole. Another eye. Then up went the flag again, 10ft of line & no minnow. So over all there are fish in the area, but I dont know what I have 2 do 2 get fish on the ice, frustrating day, espeacially when you know that your loosing an eater almost every time. Oh 4got 2 mention, had a BIG red bar move up on a Buckshot, and BANG! A 36" slimeball, which of course got my Buckshot in the hole mad.gifblush.gif

Sounds like you had a fun but tough to lose them at the hole like that.

Any luck out there lately, tried about a week ago, got one eye, but it was pretty slow. I think I might give it a try tomorrow.

      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!
