We caught some nicer fish but yes, it was a tough bite. Seems the euro larvae was the ticket to catching a few more. Tried the jigs with minnow heads but it was a tough bite.

From what i've heard its been a really slow year on mille lacs. Any reason? Bad year classes? too much pressure?

Anybody have any luck with gulp in place of the real thing. Harvey when you say euro larva do you mean just maggots and are you using the colored larva??

Tony Roach was using red maggots/euro-larva for the big perch. He also liked the new smaller red gulp waxies. It was a tough bite but if you moved around you caught them. Lee Harvey and I were out of Appledoorn's.

I was using 6 inch chubs, and also like larger willow cats.

Those 2 lb perch ate those right up.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      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.
