Atta boy! You maybe could post your pic over in the panfish forum under the weather related post from earlier today.It might give the folks the idea that cold weather conditions are not a lost cause situation, for catching the fish.I usually don't visit here too often,but the reason I was in this forum was I was looking for anything recent on Big Stone Lake.

TOO COLD?!?!? I ended up with 3 eyes and 2 cats just before dark. Catfish are a hoot to catch through the ice, gotta love those whiskers!

These must have come from a SD lake because our limit of crappies in MN is 10. Nice batch of fish. What's the length of the largest crappie?

Perchpounder is the master of pannies down here. He has so many spots people think he is a leopard. Chris, I figured with the cold and the swap meet in SF you would have stayed home this weekend. guess I was wrong. nice catch.

Nice fish Perchpounder!!!

Too cold?? No way. I just got back from URL. It was a bit chilly, but never too cold.

By the way Chris, I have your sign and bait puck. Next time we hook up on the ice I'll return them.

When did the limit drop to 10? jk. Yeah they were caught in IA but the IGL maybe not? those are just the ones I kept we had 43 total the biggest one kept was 13.5. It bit so high in the column it hit the ice when I set the hook. Who said the fish move deeper in the middle of winter? those were caught in less than 6' of water and no live bait was needed. Im not too worried BG I know where it's at I forgot about it until friday when I was getting my stuff ready. It was a little slower today we only ended up with around 30 in about 3 hours I think, but man did they get picky. Sorry no camera today maybe next week.

BG I could have used you there saturday that crappie would have made another nice avatar no? Oh well maybe next time.

Perchpounder, you're a confusing guy. Your location shows SD and MN and you go to IA to catch your fish. Evidentally, you know what you're doing.

Mike, he REALLY knows what he is doing! The guy is a panfish's worst nightmare. How is that new camera going so far?

Yeah, perchpounder can catch some pannies. He's the master.

Trust me im no master but I can get it done on occaision. the guys I fish with down there will make me look silly about 70% of the time. I really like the new camera I just wish I would have had more gas in my auger so I could have stayed ahead of the fish I could see on it.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Hey eyes one thing nice is you have reveres to help clean out your holes

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
