5 posts in this topic

Either everyone is out catchin a lot and to busy to post or your not cathin anything to report about, not many updates! I was out this morning midday and caught a couple of crappies with a lot of lookers!!! Going back tonight to try my skill at hopefully catchin a walleye. Its been a feat for me so far this year out there. I just hoping to catch a least one. May need some more help and pointers here in the near future. I will just keep putting in my time and will eventually figure it out i hope

I was out yesterday morning on the WI side in about 40' and pulled up some really nice crappies suspended in 30'. The action was pretty constant all day. I was out from about 9am-3pm and caught about 5 crappies in the 12"-13" range and around 10 in the 9"-11" range. A lot of very small white crappies mixed in as well. All fish were caught on small crappie minnows and it seemed if they were just a little too big, that they would just look at the minnow and turn around.

I was out Saturday morning until 3:00 pm. Caught 1 small and 1 10" Crappie...

Then I somehow caught the Stomach Flu.

That was not a fun weekend for me. At least it was cold so I didn't miss much.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
