Gervais hasn't been a topic for awhile. Others have been out there once or twice though.

G-man, glad to see you are still out there and hit the forum. We still need to hit some open water together before the hard water season is upon us.

I would like to hit our ice fishing lake for some open water pannies, pike, and bass one of these nice fall days.

With fall upon us many of the anglers start getting in hunting mode and fall bite can be fantastic.

Hey Mr Pike. I've been to one of the ice fishing lakes last weekend for the first time out in several weeks and did very well on numbers...only a few decent size. Give me a shout sometime soon!

Mykal, glad to hear from you !!!!!! I can not believe the summer is almost over and we have spent limited time on the water together.

I hope you have all your spots marked on Mille acs to get old man pike on the lake for some fall pigs pulling the cranks.

Hey Andy is getting married. The wedding is next weekend. He and his wife to be bought a nice place just outside of St. Cloud. He now has all the space he needs for all his fishin and hunting toys. One really neat feature at there new place is a gazebo that is built into the deck. It is fully wired for watching a game or playing poker.

I have been fishing a lot more local this year then in years past with a few trips to the cabin and few weekends on mississippi chasing smallies.

Andy also has discovered this great little walleye lake for ice fishing a little North of St. Cloud for ice fishing. There is one piece of sturture in the middle of the lake and the eyes come up at dusk and attack.

Anyway we need to hook up my friend and catch up. I assume you have been hitting Mille acs quite a bit and getting close to guide status on the mud and sand smile.gif

I hit the lake the other night from 330-930 targeting muskies most the night and never even saw a fish. Before calling it I took a couple trolling passes and picked up a little walleye.

I'm still around. My wife is almost ready to pop. Any time now.

I got out this weekend with my father. He came up and visited for the weekend and brought his boat. We hit Minnewashta twice. Did alright, mainly around the rockpile. Caught a nice variety. Nothing huge.

I'd second the 'we still need to get out together'.

Mykal- I still got checking out your boat on Mille for fall walleyes in the mind. I just hope I can make it work.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
