Don't know if you are staying right on Pimusche or nearby, but the water level is down on Pimusche making the public access pretty difficult to get out with your boat. So if you head out of the public, you need to make sure that the motor is up and there will be a couple of spots you will have to get your feet wet and do some pushing. Once out, concentrate along the shorelines (cabbage isn't out there like it normally is), bobber fishing using a jig tipped with a leech and you will find the panfish, also have had a few pike take the bait while bobber fishing the shorelines. Again, take it easy getting out on the water and at some of the humps. Good luck and let us know how you did!

Well caught alot of little northerns on little joe rigs with a minnow along the west shore and had a few big hits but nothing really to speak of. No walleyes at all and had about 15 crappies jigging just south of scenic hi way lodge on the other side of the cove with a jig and minnow. It was pretty windy which made it difficult. Look out up in the northern part of that lake. we hit a tree stump full bore and gave us a scare. The lake is down about 18 inches and we saw alot of stumps to the north. Night fishing produced only a few crappies. Drank alot of beer tho and had a good time. I will return next year. A frined of mine who goes to BSU says he has had good luck on bemidji with muskies. Has 15 on the year

Hey Trout, thanks for the report. With the water levels down we haven't been on Pimusche in about three weeks..it's pretty tough at the landing, and there are a few spots out there where you really have to watch it..but we've had good luck out there on the panfish.

      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!
