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.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
