I want to be out on Saturday before sunup at least. Last time we went to the east arm of the lake, don't know where we're gonna go this time. I suppose I should be researching that right now!

GOLDTIP, burntside lake is right outside of Ely. Quite a drive from the gunflint lodge. I wouldn't worry too much though, gunflint is quite the laker producer.

Sorry I've been outta the house most of the week at my house keepin job, then I drove to wasusa WI today! cry.gif horrible trip but it was the last time thank God. My hubby said no being there before sun up, but we will probably be on the east arm once again if we are able to go. Not sure yet because we will need to get a truck and mine is out of commission.

      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.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
