Went out today with a friend. Still not enough ice for me to drive on. Fish were being real finicky. Managed to keep 12 fish between the two of us. Real slight jigging and hole hopping seemed to be the best action. Glad to see most of the snow is gone. With the cold weather that is on its way there should be some nice ice coming.

Almost bit the dust a couple times today. I might have to dig out the cleats just to be safe. I saw vehicles all over the ice myself, but I was still finding a foot or less in most places.

Fishing has seem to slowed for me on South Center ever since we had that big melt. Has this been the case for anyone else? Just curious what depths have been producing for crappies and an occasional walleye? I have been out every other day or so anywhere from 6-20 FOW and found the action to be hit or miss. Just wondering if there is pattern that is consistently producing. Thank you for any input and by the way I live on the lake so I take care of it.

      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!
