Taking my kids out friday. Looking for anything close to hutch. Perch are fine. Everyone I have talked to has said everything has been slow. Anyone have any good ideas.

Thanks Russ

dont know how far you want to travel,but if 45-50 miles is not to much,washington south of ST.PETER is doing pretty good with some slow days but you still get some fish.You will see were everybody is fishing,so I would go to the outside edge and try.most fish Ive been getting are close to the bottom with some crappies suspended.Ive had my best luck with a small jig and crappie minnow for the crappies and waxies for the sunfish.you have to throw a fair amount back but you will also hit some very nice fish.time of day seems not to matter as I have caught fish A.M. and P.M. good luck

Washington south of Darwin. or Erie, just north of Bell lake, you wont have to go out far unless you want to. I havent heard if they are hitting them out there, that you'll have to find out for yourself. I'll be out there Saturday to find out for myself.

Hey Russ, This is Ben S. I would go out to belle lake or even green leaf. Ask my dad at work for my work number and give me a call. Caught some fish on both of those lakes. call me for more details.

Well took the kids out got the house set up. Start drilling got about half way down the hole and my auger broke down and I could not get it started. The line running from the gas tank to the carb broke at the bottom of the tank. Thanks for all the help.

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!

      nills 8 inch is 8 I think.  would be great for pike. less torque required.

      wow! talk about service. called marine general in duluth yesterday and its on my step this morning!  drill trigger is at chest level so should be dandy.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch reels often so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps
