Was on Waconia at 12:01. Tossing raps at the north side of the island found 2 14 inchers around 3:00. Tried slip bobbering with leeches and chubs with no luck too. Looking forward to hearing some success stories! So, how'd you do??

Went out to Sabre Lake and only caught bullheads all night with jigs and minnows...was fishing off of shore and a group of guys came over with waders and walked right across my line and stood right in front of me so I couldnt cast!!!They had no respect whatsoever and stayed there for about two hours...I eventually casted right over them and snagged one in the waders lol...they were really big jerks about it too...this is the bad thing about opener...people like this who have no respect for other people!

Saturday, Hook/Swan, 9 boats, 2 bullheads and 2 crappies. Several hits but no takers.

Sunday, Greenleaf/Erie, marked all kinds of fish but nothing would bite.

My crew boated about 200 Crappies this weekend, from depths of 35 feet to 3 feet of water. Fish ran up to 13".

C&R was the key.

I opened on Winnie for the 29th year. Saturday was a little slow but managed 20 walleye over a 12 hour period. The rain started at around 1 PM and didn't quit until around 8:00 PM.

Lindy rigged for a while with little success. Went to a Northland 1/8 oz. fireball in a firetiger pattern and shiner and hold on. I did speed it up and rip jig for them. This made all the difference in the world.

Sunday I had a nice limit of 15 to 16 3/4 L eyes in 4 1/2 hours with several throw backs in the 18 to 26" range. 6-9 feet along High Banks.
The total for the weekend was 62 eye's using this pattern.

Also, caught a couple dozen perch that actually measured 11 to 12+ inches. It's nice to see some large perch again.

Of course what what a weekend of fishing be like with out the pike cutting off jigs, trying to tie on another and your fingers are so numb you can't hold on to the line.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      Thank you.

      If you want to get in there by snow mobile or walking over, Wolf Lake is worth a try.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
