How have folks been doing on Calhoun? Are they shallow or deep? Saw two guys out on the south end last night driving home. Would have liked to been out with the front approaching. May try and get out Sunday if it is not too windy. Tip-ups for daylight and then move deeper for eyes at dusk.

Abuddy and I have hit Calhoun the last two nites in a row, haven't got anything to show for it. But that is how it usually goes in the winter out there for me at least. Tues. nite we fished the south end by Thomas Beach. I missed something nice on my tip-up, most likely a wally judging by the teeth marks. I did connect with a 'ski on my crappie jiggin' stick though. It was only about 25in.,but with 4lb. line on that little whip it was a good battle. Funny thing was I actually pulled it out of a different hole than I was fishing. There where 3 holes punched pretty close to eachother, I was fishing through one and when it came up first it tried to come up the one that was frozen over. After a minute of finagling I freed it from there, well then it tried to come up another hole next to the one I was fishing. that hole was still unfrozen so I just let it do it's thing and it swam right up the hole, it's head was far enough out that I was able to grab him by the gill no problem.

Anyways, last nite we hit the west side by 36th St. and we got zero. We only tried for a couple hours and didn't have any fancy electronics with so I can't say we gave it 100%. There where quite a few people out there, maybe they did better, who knows.

Just bought my first Vex last nite too, I can't wait until this cold snap is over so I can go play with it. Maybe in the bathtub?....

Thanks for the post GG. I hope to get out Sunday night, unless it is below zero. Man it's cold out.

I was fishing out from thomas beach on wensday I believe(before the chill) and had little luck. Was fishing on the side of the point, where it drops from about 10 to 30 ft in about as many feet. Was getting no action out of any depths for any fish until I moved a little more off the point and then all I could manage where perch until sundown, although they were decent in around 16 ft. Once dark hit it was dead. Good luck

Well, I will finally get out on Calhoun tonight. Feels fishy on the weather situation. Plan on setting up in deeper water for eyes (25-30FOW). Any last minute advice? I'll probably be on the north-east end with my portable. Will post tomorrow with results.

Beautiful night on Calhoun. Unfortunately, very slow. I set up from 6:45-10pm. 31 FOW. Using fatheads. Picked up one small eye on a tip up in 25 FOW. No lookers, no bites, no anything in the portable. Even tried shallower for a bit and had nothing. Maybe I'm too deep? I fished the northeast end, near the boat launch. Couple more folks on the east side, closer to 36th street. Too far away to check on success rate. I think they were on the large underwater point that sticks out from there. May try to go back on Sunday in another area.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
