This year we are being taught a lesson that we are not experts like we thought the past two years. smile.gif
West Wind, Hillman's, Hudec's, Roger's and I believe Mort's all carry tackle. Every type of hook that is or has worked is available. I know Hillman's carrys Phelps.

We were up from monday-wednesday. Caught 11 crappies 11-13.5 inches long. Used white jigs that glowed green. I tried a white and pink in same glow color and only caught one fish on that, all the rest on the all white. Must have had at least 12 beautiful walleyes and they all bit the same white jig. Also, we had both rosy's and regular minnows and just about every fish we caught hit the regular crappie minnow. Hope this helps. Good luck and safe fishing.

was up on url wed nite and had best luck on plain hook. could see fish come up to jigs and then would have them bite on plain hook. just something to try if all else fails.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
