panman, can you email about where you caught the tullibees? I was out last week and only marked a couple on the flasher. I'd like to catch a few more to add to smoker. I can trade you some fish for the spot, if you're willing... thanks.

Bak --

The eyes closed so you had better focus on the crappie action.

I have caught some nice crappies a few years ago on that lake -- you might try Lida -- the guys on the site here have been talking it up, lately.

If you noticed a bunch of holes out in that area, they were probably drilled by me. How early are you talking? what's the window? That's where I've been fishing but I must not be there early enough. What kind of setup were you using? I was using a flasher/dropper rig. A small kastmaster with a size 12 geng bug dropper, 12" down, tipped with waxies. Maybe I should have ditched the flasher and used a small jig? When I saw the schools come in they were between 15-20 feet suspended.

Thanks.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
