Snow conditions, heading up 8-9-10

Deciding wheeler vs. sleds. How much snow is on the ice? I am not sure how much snow will make the wheeler a big pain but its easier that bring 6 sleds when you can just hoo kthe trailer to the bacl of the wheeler. I know getting over some roads might be tough but would be nice to be able to pile on a trailer.

We were just up this weekend and I would say sleds, but depending on how far you're going a wheeler might work. It's all crusted snow, no loose snow so cooling and slide lube may be a problem for your sleds if you're gonna run far. There are some drifts too that are hard so you may have trouble with a wheeler. Its a toss up at best.

I was out from Rogers this weekend with a wheeler and we had no problem getting to spots as far as 2 miles away on wheelers. We didn't get stuck at all, like previously stated watch for the drifts. The only problem we had was our rope tied to the fishhouse kept breaking. This of course will all change if they get snow this week.

Hey Big Jeff,

Do you fish with a dude named Officer Mike? The guy going around impersonating a cop, but is really a male nurse? If so this is Joe D's brother.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
