Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye.

again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.

 

we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom

Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds.

Fun and a good bite also!

My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish

No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12

Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year!

If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

Went out yesterday and pounded the gills. Was about for about 2-3 hours and caught 100-150 gills. Biggest was almost 9 inches. Fun time!

First off very nice pics everyone, makes me think I have to spend more time chasing pannies and less time on the eyeballs. 

Rick, do you mind explaining how you go about sight fishing? Are you old school about it and lay around the ice all day peering down the hole? Or maybe a little higher tech with just hole in a flip over/hub of some sort? Or are you going all out with underwater cameras in a shack? What I've done in the past is drill a big ol' hole and sit in my flip over. Which is a lot of work without an ice saw, especially if the hole isn't producing like I think it should be. Just thinking their might be some easier ways going about it.  Thanks

      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!

      That's what happened to mine too.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.

      north metro lake had consistent 2-2.5" yesterday around noon. Headed back tonight to check a couple  more lakes.  It would be nice to hit 4-5" before warm weather sets in  later this week

      Me and my wife are looking for a skid house to buy that is already on  or by Mille Lacs and we  will move it to the resort of our choosing. Looking for a 10x20 open to smaller and open to bigger. If have any leads on any or have one you'd like to get rid of let me know. Thanks
