I have not fished it in a couple of weeks but I managed to catch a lot of sunnies the last time I was there. Last weekend I drove by and there were several cars in the parking lot. Sorry not much help.

Fished Lake Rebecca last weekend. Lots of people, but not sure why. We graphed tons of little fish. Caught tons of little fish, I do mean little, like 4-5 inch sunnies and crappies. Lots and lots of baitfish like shiners and fatheads swimming around. Oh yeah, only about 5 inches of ice as well. Will not be going back anytime soon.

If you're willing to drive south to pool 4 or 5 the bite is good and the size is better.

Has anybody thought of Crosby lake? I live in Buffalo now but crosby would get some traffic when I worked at a local bait shop.

Jigginjim - You still do any time on pool? Like to talk to you about panfish in that stretch, and that pool in general sometime. Seem to remember you from some of the bait shops as someone who knew that stretch of river.

      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.
