Last I heard, the only Whitebass/stripers thru the ice have been on Mazaska, earlier in the year. I get them sometimes in the spring on the stretch of the Cannon River between Bylesby & the Miss. River.

Speaking of ice fishing Byllesby, I was out there form 4:30-7:45 last nite. Thinking that the front coming in would make for a good "Bite". I was wrong. at least for me. Had one bite & it had to be at one of the only times I left the shack. I was 15 ft away , getting a brew out of my truck & the rattle reel went off. By the time I reached the shack, fish was off & gone.. Bummer. I wanted to stay later, but needed to get back to the house.

Have to try again later..

GoodLuck to ya!

Thanx Tyler, Yep, It went back right after the pics.(taken 4-5 yrs. ago) It could have been a state record, I'm thinkin, Had it been later in the year.(Mn. record 18+" @ 4.4 lbs) It was around 20-22" using the can= approx 4-/34", & we guessed the weight at 3+ lbs. Seemed skinny for the length, at the time. It was pretty cold that day , so gil54p(< FMn. Member) took the pic & back down the hole it went, for someone else to try & catch. I don't put fish on the wall, & it was a fairly rare catch for Lake Mazaska. Maybe 30 sec. - 1 min. exposure to the air. We were fishing for crappies. used minnow & bare hook w/splitshot.If I remember correctly, About 20 FOW deep, fishing 18' down.

Nice Memory for me..

\:D

Go FIsh ;\)

We tried byllesby, circle, and fox- nothing.

Saturday afternoon and sunday ended up on the river by Frontinac-lots of small saugers, 4 17-18in, 2 10in and 1 15in walleye, and 2 whities. Lots of people out there even with the wind.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
