We prefer Mich Golden with venison jerky right on the bottom.

We're going after the big Pike. We'll be speed trolling with Barbi and Ken dolls dressed with 0000 trebles!!

I know this forum is supposed to be fun.....but its also supposed to be informative.

P.s. too much mich golden and venison, and I'd recommend staying away from my bottom.

I had really good luck this past weekend using an all gold demon tipped with a shiner. I only bought one at the bait shop on the way out, big mistake. It was getting slammed right away. Caught four quick eyes then had one snap my line right at the top of the hole. Jig gone. Nothing produced as well after that.

the purple demon is also a good 1 to use under a bobber.

Hey, Ive never been on the lake. Heading up first thing in the morning. Im just throwing out some ideas here. Seriously, I have been doing my homework and will be trying all of the above if necessary.

I do have one question and its a bit off topic but....being a LOW greenhorn, I am assuming that the auger extension is mandatory at this point in the game??

It's a hateful thing not to have enough auger. Bring the extension!

Read about a week ago that there was about 38 inches of ice. That would be an extension

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share

      I found some ice!!! Not exactly much, and there are swans in the picture indecating open water too. But it's a start.
