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

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.

jigging with red glow buckshots.and orange plain hook on deadstick.silver shiners seem to be the bait they want.

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

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
