loadmaster, i have only been on the water up there one time. the only thing i can offer would be the same thing they are telling us on here. current reports are the best bet. sounds like the dawg did well. i think i'm going up there next weekend. i have 4 days off(fri-mon)work on tuesday. i hope to make it up at least one day, maybe drag the camper up, and close the w.w. what day/days do you have off? i like the drift fishing til you locate fish. i just hope the gail force winds hold out and the weather is bearable. maybe i'll bring my pontoon, it has railings to keep me from falling out of the boat smile.gif maybe we could work together and catch all the fish? can't do any worse than my smelt trips hehehe. three trips to duluth. twice i had to get wet for nothing, and the time i didn't even get in the water i limited out!(thanks surface)
email me and i'll keep in touch with you.later--------jigglestick---------

Jiggle...Are the railings on the pontoon high enough to keep the auger in when you hit that rogue wave? What's your 1st weeknd in June looking like? Looks like Paul and I will be heading up that way then. Give me a call I feel a game plan being developed over a cold one! Talk to you soon!

Good Luck! Rip some Lips!

Looks a goer for next weekend. ST checkout my e-mail for the tele # will mail jigglestick with it also I am off Fri-Mon How about a thur late leaving time or super early fri. Whoops I lost ST Address 525-5782. Since I am not a crusher I do not have a pontoon and a camper always have the back of the truck/shell and a cot. What time does the WW close and do they have rooms or is it first booth first come. I hope keely was refering to the ice conditions for next weekend and not the participants.

The day started out cold and windy and a little rough. Oh and we closed WW thur. night so it was a little rough in more then one way. We were good so no stories that I can remember any way.
Winds died down to a nice breeeze and warmed up. I got a combination sunbrun wind chapped.
Most everyone is fishing 5' of water along the shore. Not a lot of action there so we headed to 8.5 ft off the first ditch NE of Hudec's We marked fish 6' down so we drifted with a white jig and minnow 7' below a bobber. I guess when you have boats move in on you it's a form of flattery so we didnt get to worked up about that. smile.gif We just moved to be alone and wasnt long till we were in fish again. Got off the lake at 6 pm heavy with crappies. Great trip and meet Albatros at WW,hi smile.gif.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
