Best setup of the day was once again the Exude Comida rigged wacky in the Christmas Tree color. I noticed all my bites were coming from fish laying on the bottom, so I opted to put a 1/32 oz bullet split shot on to speed the drop.

Check out the fog in the background.

I also had a chance try out a new lure. It the “Fan-Tastic” Action Lure – Squeel-R. It has some unique concepts. Check them out.. http://www.actionlurescompany.com/

We also brought the pannie gear along and found a handful of crappies and a few gills.

Everything CPR'ed as usual.

Enjoy your time on the water, and buckle down because the water temps are starting to drop!

Nice fish, sounds like fun! Ive been wanting to try may hand at "backwaters" fishing. Every time I go out I get stuck in shallow water. Are there any areas that I can get my walleye boat in? If not I guess I will wait till I get a flat bottom.

Well, I've seen bigger boats back there and I know they are launching at the Pontoon slough landing (I think its called that). There are a few areas to be cautious of, but once your out in the channels its 5-8' deep pretty consistently. I would take a 17' V bottom boat out there, but I would't put the big motor down at all. Run the electric so its just barly in the water and that will help keep weeds off as well. There's much to watch out for, so I would take it slow and be cautious.

There are areas where you can enter the backwaters from the main river channel as well, but I've never done that.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      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.
