Can't make it on the ninth,but let me know how you do.The root is a big river with big browns,but finding them is like finding a needle in a haystack,unless your very familiar with what stretches produce and when.I found that in creeks that big fish are extremely territorial and easier to pinpoint,but in rivers they tend to roam because of a more abundance of food and fluctuating water temps.

Had pretty good success down in lanesboro today. Ended the day with 3 browns all about 11-13" 1 rainbow going about 11, and about 10 smallies ranging from about 4-13" and the one big guy that was hungry and fooled me thinking i had a nice brown ended up going about 16. All of these fish came from one little stretch in the river right outside of town.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
