Thanks OTTERMAN

Checked the ice depths out from Golden Eagle North to about half way to Squaw Point on Thursday. 12 to 13 inches of ice. Drove the pickup out on Friday to put the house out there.

Fished Saturday and Sunday. About 13 to 14 inches of ice. Not a nibble during the day.

Saturday evening, about 6:30 to 7:30, we had about 15 hits. Pulled up 6, 5 of them were keepers (13 - 14 inches).

Sunday evening, about 5:15 pm, my 6 year old son and I were pulling up the lines so I could head back to the Cities for work Monday morning. As I went to grab the forth line I said, "Where is the bobber?" I let the fish take quite a bit of line, but nothing when I tried to set the hook. We put one of his lines back in. I had another chance, but again nothing. We waited another 5 minutes and his bobber went down. I told him to give it enough line and then set the hook when the line was tight. He caught a 10 inch walleye, his first walleye ever. We took a picture and put it back. A few minutes later my bobber went down, a 14 inch walleye. As I was trying to put another shiner on, his line went down again. Another 14 inch walleye. Then the lines went dead and we packed it up at 6:15.

It was fun watching him catch the fish. I think I have him hooked on this ice fishing stuff!!!!!

Good luck fishing.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
