Lots of good fish caught today. Key was finding live green cabbage... . 4mm gold tungsten jig with Impulse mayfly proved to be the hot bait today

From the looks of that ice behind you, it looks like someone has been eating too much Taco Bell.

Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there

Cleaned a walleye last night that had 8 2” crappies in its belly. Now I know what I should have been using for bait. Or maybe the fat head was just a after dinner snack. 

I was fishing on 7” of ice in 8 feet of water.

Had a really good day on a local lake set up around 1030am in 30fow used clam snow drop jigs ( blue banana) was the color with a 1 1/2" blue maki minnow head cought over 40 nice crappies and 3 Pike, kept 6 crappies for dinner and let the rest go. Fish were suspended 10-15 ft off the bottom just had to drop it down and  get them to come up a foot and they would hammer it the humminbird was lit up like a Christmas tree except when the pike would come in and Chase them away. What a difference a day makes yesterday couldn't get a thing to bite and today the acted like they hadn't eaten all winter.

Yeah I have been out there quite a bit this year. A lot of small stuff but always some really nice fish. A lot of 10 in gills in that lake.

Agreed. No need at all to keep them over 9 inches. Fun to catch, and more importantly keep the sunfish population healthy.

Got a late start yesterday due to life and its mishaps. Once on the lake I felt better:) Hit 4spots on three different lakes. Found between 16-20inches of ice everywhere. Fishing was extremely slow, still managed to find a few nice ones toward evening.

      Hit the ice for the first time today about 6 inches of ice and lots of slush 3-5 inches deep. The snitch handled the work load with amazing results. The busy end was the smallest pug bug with a maki mino the crappies were racing up am crushing it. The gills would come up slowly but would eat it. Had a 3 to 4 pound walleye break me off in the top of the hole.

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Well im hoping that maybe ill be able to find a little insight as to how i can feed my ice fishing addiction on the weekend. While working all week its not that I have to travel alot to find a lake. Just that i plunged into my addiction being a novice at best. Looking for some advice on what to look for when choosing lakes and how to go about pursuit on the lake.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck .
      Good luck, and please stay safe
