YES I FINALLY GOT IN!!!! it only took 2 months of trying but the forum finally let me in. I was at the lake Sarah get together

in begaining of the month, sorry we keep to ourselfs it sounds like you guys had a great time. we ended up going to dead coon lake due to my friend called and said the bite was one, we got there fished hard till 9pm and didnt get a bite. so on the way back to Nebraska I wanted to hit lake benton for a few hours, and we got sunked again, but had a GOOD time. as for fishing here in Lincoln Ne the crappies are awsome, I have been out the past few weekends and have been limiting on them every time, smallest are 8 inches and the largest are 15 inch, the average have been 10-13 inch. it is awsome fishing. once I figure out how to send pictures I will send them. lookin foward to chatin with you guys

Good to see another HUSKER fan on here. Originally from Nebraska myself. Glad to hear you've been hammering the crappie. Is it a private lake or a bigger lake around Lincoln. Have fun and get after em, just like Pelini will do in the next couple years.

      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.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
