Was out last night starting my pre fishing for the first night eye torny in MN.got out to the lake at about 7:30 and started my hunt got 4 eyes 17 to 19. 3 drum and a white bass. was looking like it was going to be a great night of fishing I had just got a drum and it was getting a little dark and i hadent put my light up in the back yet. so i put the light up turn it on were good to go. well i started to troll along the area i was working. i look over and my light is not on (funny it was just working) as im looking at it i pull the bulb out and poff its a milion bits of glass. night cut short due to no light. looked like the eyes were snapping in about a 30 yard area i was trolling. speed was 3 mph 2.7 to 3.3. i wish i could have stayed out for an hour or 2 more to cast to this area but luck sent me home.

hope to get out next wed and try it again. i need to find a pattern in there movements. anyone else have any luck with eyes?

I went to Tetonka last Saturday. There were to many boats with there Elec, bow mount motors in my way. So I sliped over to Frances. I found a nice weedline around 80 yards long in 11 FOW. We had a good time with bass and eyes.

Went to another lake Sunday. We sat on top of a school of small Crappies and Blue gills. WOW! the school at times was so thick it had a grayline. We took 13 slab Crappies. If we cought small crappies we would step up a size untill the slabs would hit,once we had that down we would do the same thing with another bait. Blue and sliver castmaster 3"long and small countdown Raps were the Best. THey would hit it on the fall.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
