Yup, you all did it again. Great big CLEAN shack, put us on fish, and we all left beautiful Red Lake smiling again. I would estimate about 50 walleyes caught with lots below the slot. Also, thanks for the bonus crappies.

People, a little birdy told me they still have openings in March for the best crappie fishing in the state, better give em' a call. wink.gif

Jonny, thanks again for taking us out to scout with you.

Kelly, keep that pole at home if you are heading out to the pub. And no more dragging welders around the yard. grin.gif

Thanks again Kelly, Patsy, and Jon. We will be back to Waskish, my 2nd home. grin.gif

We had the privilege of going out scouting with Jonny P. We caught some really nice walleye and a few crappies on this adventure with him. I hope to take advantage of the openings they still have in late febuary and march. I would highly recommend Waskish Minnow Station for your icefishing trips!!! Troy Pike grin.gif

Nice rod guys. cool.gif I know you think it's a great joke but I'm going to use it, I have just the right touch for it. grin.gif Besides my "unbreakable" fishing rod will work great if one of Foster's seals, or Foster shows up. grin.gif

I know you will use it Kelly. No foster's seal has a chance with you having a piece of iron like that while you fish with it. I would love to get a pic of your first fish caught on that club. grin.gif Thanks again for a great fishing trip. Troy Pike

Sidecar, I can't wait to see the look on YOUR face when he brings it back broken. He'll get it done, could wreck a steel ball with a rubber hammer that guy. grin.gif

Pikester, Tina and I where talking and she pointed out your clothes ALWAYS match. Not sure what to think about that, the only angler always making a fashion statement. Most go for warmth or luck, not you. grin.gif

I have no say in what I wear anymore, the wife takes care of that. Tells what bait to use too! grin.gif

Did you catch any fish New Years Eve? More importantly, did you make it all night in the shack or head home?

Check out the fishing report. We started catching fish about 10:30 and it was non-stop until 2:30AM when we realized we where running out of bait and missed new years.

I went to sleep and Tina kept fishing until 5 AM.

      Stopped by the lake on Friday and asked a gentleman that was out fishing.  He said 2.5" of ice.

      Figured I would start a fishing report to keep it separate from someone trying to get ice thicknesses.  Fished three different lakes this weekend.  First lake we got to on Saturday had a side by side on it so we felt safe walking.  Hole at access had 7" and we stopped in a few holes along the way fishing and we found an average of 8".  This lake was up on the WE Reservation, long skinny and deep.  Fishing was hit and miss pike were chasing around the gills.  Caught a few big bass which was fun on the UL's and caught a few small gills.  Found a few keeper crappies and kept enough for a meal.  Average was around 11" for crappies and 7" for gills biggest being a 13" crappie.  Second lake is a very known walleye lake around DL.  we had 8" out there also.  Made the hike out to a shoreline break/point and set up with tip ups and jigging spoons.  I suck at walleye fishing and struck out.  Buddies that were 10-15' on either side of me landed 2 EACH and the one tip up 30 feet away also landed one.  Perch were THICK!  I only caught 4-6" perch. Sunday my fishing partner over slept so I went chasing bluegills and crappies on a small lake.  Drilled holes from 42' to 14'.  Fishing was SLOW until the sun came out and then the sunnies were showing up in 38' suspended and aggressive.  Hole hopped because they were all 4-6" but that's all i could find out deep.  As dark came closer my friends started appearing and we could follow the fish up shallower.  Ended up with a few meals for a buddy and his daughter who came out.  A lot of weeding through small ones for keepers.  Very spooky fish.  Aggressive jigging to attract and then they pretty much didn't want it moved.  Wax worms were key last night. Good luck fishing.

      Yikes!  I haven't fished OT County yet but been on four different lakes in Becker.  Last weekend bigger shallower lake was at 7".  This weekend skinny long deep lake was at 8" and it had a side by side on the lake. Large body of water that when it warmed up reopened had 8".  Went to my honey hole and had 10.25-10.5" on it.  Dang near drove out but figured I'd wait so I drilled about 150 holes yesterday and didn't find any thin ice spots.  My shoulder hurts from drilling holes this weekend and carrying around my big 10" auger lol.   Becker County report.  Fish were SPOOKY!!!  Tried a few lakes for panfish and didn't really get into them but they were spooky.  They prefered smaller jigs tipped with wax worms, tried soft plastics but they wanted real things this weekend was my finding.  Fished a lake Saturday night right before dark had tip ups out and jigging with spoons.  One eye came on a tip up other 4 came on spoons.  Had guys 15 feet from me on both sides both catch 2 and the tip up was another 30 feet the other way and I didn't get a bite or a mark!!!!  That's my luck though.  People catching walleyes what I'm hearing are downsized baits on dead sticks.  Buddy got a 6.5 pounder C&R on a crappie/fathead fishing for perch mid day.  I don't know if weather has them in a funk or what.  Panfish are spooky and smaller jigs worked better 4 mm and 3 mm had better results then 5 mm.  5 mm I was finding was spooking fish when they would get near.  I drilled holes from 42' to 14' and had best luck when sun came out in 38 feet but I could follow the schools shallower as the sun set ultimately ended up in 19-21' for crappies and gills.
