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.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
