Hey BB,
The conditions are getting better every day, we are seeing large pods of bait all over the sonar screen these days.

I'm not much for trolling until it gets to cold to cast however, I know Tom has caught a few nice ones this week in the evening. smile.gif

Hey, Hey.

Closed up the cabin today.

Seen Terry just the other day.

Darn cold out on that Island come 3 AM but I LOVE IT!


Clients and I got a couple this week trolling a gap not far from BIG FISH Hump.


they 44" & 46", me 43" & 46".

Simple 25' lead, 10" Perch Jake and 10" WILDMAN Believer we color up by hand.

BANG, BANG, one on, one in the BAG.


Not being able to cast much left us no choice but to troll. From what we been seeing, this in not the BEST way to get on the BIGGEST fish right now.

We have seen many huge fish this weak working simple areas, nothing fancy.

But being only half of what I should be, I have been sort of helpless to do much about this. Real bummer since late August. frown.gif

2005 my NEW nick name should Be ROBO TOM


Trolling should get better & Better with water temps about 44 to 48 depending where your at, what time of day and wind speed, but right now I would stick to casting.

Remember the Big winds are your best friend this time of year.

Silver Scale

Robo Tom do you mean Roto Tom?

Messed up the back so have not been out since I last saw you and the hounds by Big Fish Island. Hope your surgery goes good and you heal real quick.

Electrified Metal Chest.....AKA Silver Scale :-)

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
