Just left the lake and did ok. Fished out of Hillmans and tried at 8 miles out, then 5 miles out and finally 3.5 miles. Caught about 25 walleyes and 2 perch. 2 northerns 1-33" 1 28 1/2" No crappies. BJ from Hillmans helped us out and put us on some bigger walleyes at 3.5 miles out. Thank you to him for the help and hospitality for checking on us. We brought our own shack and he still wanted to make sure we were doing good. Definately went out of his way to make sure we were happy. Kelly P thank you for coming to check on us immediately when we were spinning our tires trying to move the house. Everyone was great. Thanks agian for working so hard to keep everyone happy on the lake and keeping the road in great shape

I was also up Thur - Sat and tried the same spot out of Hillmans - 8 miles out. Has some luck Thur night, but caught 1 walleye on Fri. afternoon - not even a bite at night. Was going to move, but elec. auger broke. Going back up on Tues.

Wondering how other people did over the past weekend. Any reports would be great. Thanks

Doug -

I'm gonna try out of Hillmans, taking the "Crappie Hwy" to the NW. People I have talked to are doing better out that way. I guess start there and see what happens.

Just got back. 3 of us started at the end of Hillmans road off to the right about 100 yards. Set up around 3 pm. Caught about 5 last one caught on rattle reel about 9am. Marked plenty of fish but would not bite anything from buckshots to plain hook to glow demons. Tried everything in my box. So we picked up and went to "crappie highway" The first road at 5.2 miles we took. Went down it a mile or so and set up around 3pm saturdayafteroon. Fished from 3 till 10am sunday without a single bite. Marked about 3 fish all night and we fished till 4am and put rattle reels out till 10. Going back in 2 weeks, hopefully it picks up a little. Still had a blast tho. What nice weather this weekend too!!

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      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.
