18 posts in this topic

Me and some buddies heading up the weekend of the 25th, just wondering if anyone has been having any luck with perch, 'eyes, or even eelpout. Any info will help. Thanks

We will be out of Dickies this weekend. With the cold front, not expecting a lot of action. Had to buy more schnapps to keep warm.

Why oh why does this happen every year?

I am going up too for my first trip to the big pond this weekend and looks like we will have to deal with a nasty cold front. Oh well, if I cant catch fish at least I can catch a buzz!

Same thing happened last year, on my only trip to Mille Lacs there was a huge front that shut off the fish. GRRRRRR!

I'll be there with the quicksand guy afforementioned. What's up man! They finally gave me a login! 5 times now and it's magic all the sudden.

Anyway, any Dickies people are welcome to wander to our shack and party. I mean, how good could the fishing be with a forecast of -13? I will be the guy with the strobe light on his head.

Last year out of Dickies we got 4 between 22 and 27 inches. What a blast. Amazing we caught them all out of the same hole in the fish house. It was cold last year too when we went out. Most were biting after 8:00. We saw a lot of fish on the camera but they were very finicky(sp?). We threw the kitchen sink at them, waxies, fatheads, shiners, had the best luck on a colored hook and a full shiner. Good luck.

Joey, stop in for a cocktail. We will be up there from Friday through Sunday.

Are the 8 hold houses out of dickies kept up nice and what not or what is the condition of the houses? The pictures from the website only show the bigger houses and i think those are old pictures also.

There old but they work. Don't expect them to be jumping out of the hole this weekend but you never know. I would try a smaller jigging spoon with about 5-10 grubs on it. This has worked for me in the past when thing have been slow and the fish are picky

We were in 12 ft of water, jigging minnows and grubs on hooks and all sorts of buckshots and whatever we had in our tackleboxes, 12 holes total in two four person houses. 5 fish caught, the largest caught was my 15 inch walleye. just two keeper walleyes. Light jigging motion about 6 inches from the bottom seemed to be the key to draw the fish to the lure, but most times they only looked at it and took off. I didn't see any jumbo at all all weekend on the camera. A couple dinky perch, and a couple eater walleyes, thats all. My friends went out to 30ft of water, and saw some fish but still they wern't biting. Oh well, i still had a good fridged time!

Joey, you did better than we did. Only a couple of small perch for the whole weekend. Things were real slow, with the weather we did not expect much. Drank most of our schnapps the first day. We had 6 guys in a 12 bunker. Fished hard at times. A lot a small perch on the camera. We did not bring portables do to the weather, just fished out of the shack the whole tim.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know 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.
