Nowhere around here unless you want all the 6 inchers you can handle. I'd suggest heading a little north or about a half hr south starting with faribault lakes

St. Croix River. Stay out of the metro, it sucks. Some nice fish can be found, but you may spend the rest of your ice fishing season looking for them. Save yourself the time and head to the croix.

I was thinking of heading south this weekend. What lakes around Fairbault do you suggest? I'd be willing to go farther south if need be. Thanks.

My buddy and I limited out on crappies on Madison last night. Off the end of Church Bar in about 10-15 FOW. Crappie minnows worked great, they didn't touch waxies. I don't know if the bite will be hot this weekend but it sure was last night.

I was thinking about heading to Madison on Saturday. Nice to hear they are still biting out there. Last time they were hitting the smallest chubby darter.

Hey Pantastic, are you talking about the #3 Chubby? Can you drive everywhere on the lake? Any springs or anything like that?

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
