I went out to check on the ice Sunday at 11:30. I checked right off the boat landing and it was about 5 inches. Probably more by now.

Shoot, I wish I would have seen your post sooner.

I had planned to be off work all week due to gallbladder surgery last week and I was feeling better, and was getting a little stir crazy sitting around the house, so I decided to go back to work today.

The idea to go ice fishing had crossed my mind but since it was going to be so cold I figured might as well go to work. Let us know how it goes, I’d be interested in making a trip out there in the near future.

Threw all the stuff in the truck after work. I was thinking about hitting a small lake near my house but I could easily change my plans and be at Sarah around noon tomorrow. Have you been on the ice yet?

No problem. I just went over to a little puddle near my house for a few hours. Man was it cold. Not too much happening. A few small sunfish and perch. I never did find them crappies. It was good to dust the cob webs off the auger and wet a line. Thinking about making a trip out to Sarah on Sunday.

Hope you got the car fixed.

By the way there was about 8 or 9 inches of ice.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
