Fished Lime Lake in Avoca and iced the biggest perch I've ever pulled out of a lake. It was really cool to see that lake producing perch again. We didn't pull out record numbers of perch, but the ones we got were HUGE!!!

We also pulled 6 nice northerns out. Missed a bunch more.

Boilerguy, I was going to come over to lime on Saturday but went to Corabelle and Sara and got skunked at both. On Sunday tryed Shetek at the pubic landing on the southwest side and nothing there . Not a good week-end for me.

Catfish, ya should have been there. I know, if I had a nickel for everytime I've heard that one. Mine was the only permanent house on the lake. There were a few other fellas out there with tip-ups and they iced a couple of northerns also.

I'm going to be in the metro area fishing with my older brother. I'm thinking I'll be back sometime Saturday morning. I don't know about you fellas, but I'm going back to Lime Lake.

If you go to the county park, drive off the laning and head straight for the big point. Look west when you get there and you will see a smaller point sticking out. Set up anywhere between those 2 points.

Be ready, there are a lot of northerns in there. If you only want perch you'll be bummed out cuz the northerns will pester ya all day.

I'll be in a blue and white fish house with a rusty old 83 Chev 3/4 ton pickup next to it. If you come out stop by for a brewski.

Boilerguy, maybe we can hook up one of these days and go fishing. It looks like I have to work every weekend until ice season is over. I am open most week nights and weekends Sat. 5pm-sun. 11 am. February 11-13 I am heading to LOTW. I will post a report when I get back.

I'm going to LOTW this weekend. Then the weekend of Feb 18 I'm going to URL. Other than that, drop a line and we can hook up and fish. I work pretty much every day except the weekends so it may be interesting if you have to work all the weekends.

      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 teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      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 
    • MikeG3Boat
      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
