I was up at Hillman's today and went out with Shorty on the lake. We drove a minivan out 5.4 miles, no problem. There is 12-14" inches in the road, and nearby. But,any rough ice may have as little as 3"inches,so all is not well yet.BE CAREFUL!Two nights ago they had two guys go out about 4 miles and get 22 crappies.There were some guys out there today that had gotten a couple nice crappies and a nice northern during the day today. So things are starting to get going.We need a few more cold nights.

Hey Matt those new hooks I got from you didn't work that good. I sat there for an hour without a bite. But maybe tomorrow I'll move the house out on the lake and try them in water. grin.gif
Really your Glo Spoon is one of my favorite hooks, I love it and I think your Glow Tubes will a winner also.

Fished out of Rogers about a mile and a half out and caught 0 crappies. We did catch many many walleyes though. Most are close to 20 inches too. We never went more than a half hour without a walleye. Wish we could have caught a crappie though. Did catch one 7lb northern and lost something huge on another tipup, assuming it was a northern, we never actually saw it. Overall it was very fun. Can't wait for the walleyes to be legal up there!! On another note, we didn't catch many perch. Last year we would catch hundreds of perch all day long. Yesterday we only caught maybe 10 perch max. Kind of strange.

The fishing picked up a little over the weekend, a few reports of 20 or so crappies by a couple groups. Bill T. was out on Saturday and caught 5 crappies between 5 and 6PM and before that he caught around 40 walleyes or so with the biggest being around six pounds. It looks like the future is getting a little brighter. 3 reports of 40+ inch northerns caught on Sunday. it looks like the fishing is picking up and with a little cold weather we should be driving all trucks by the weekend.

Yes, I am the Phelps with the lures. We are the creators of the Phelps Floater and the first Stand Up Jig,along with many other new products. Chris whom? I will have many leeches in the spring. Clue me in. All I need is a clue. Although, I will only have Supers.

Happy Holidays To All!

Those stand up jigs of yours are great. I caught some nice bass on them this summer tossing them in the weed pockets tipped with shiners. Great weedless lures!!

Are you clueless in your last post? (sorry - I couldn't resist)

All kidding aside, the Phelps are a class act!! If you haven't tried their tackle, pick some up. And when buying leeches in the Bemidji area ask if they are Phelps, they have the biggest and best!! A little background on the leech story, Matt was going to get me a pound of leeches just before a big tournament. Things got busy with checking traps , delivering tackle and going to captains meeting and they were forgotten. He made arrangements with another fisherman to ensure I had bait. The Phelps will take care of you!!!

Now that I have some time I was looking at coming up in the next couple weeks. Is it a good time to come or is it a good idea to wait until later in the year. Would also love to fish the northerns I hear about. Have never been to URL. Anybody have any advice?

      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.
