Can you feel it? Does this cold front get you excited, I've been getting pumped up! This is just what is needed to fire up the bite, seems I can't think of much else besides gettin down to the river for some great fishing and some relaxation! I got plenty of redtails in the tank that are more than willing to sacifice their life to make my fishing trip more enjoyable! Fishing anyone! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I am hoping to get a kitchen pass to go out for at least a couple hours Saturday am...I can sense a feeding frenzy with it dropping to 30's and then jumping to low 50's....

I'm really trying my best to get down to the river tomorrow morning and give it a shot! For sure I'll be on the river early saturday morning, should be on the water around 4ish, just love being on the river early, it doesn't get much better. I've been watching this artic blast and it should be all moved on by friday and weather should be stable for the weekend I'm sure the bite is going to be unreal!

I'll probably see ya out there Sat. early, gonna try some of my fall spots and see what happens. If you see a guy or two in an Aulmacraft tiller w/ a Suzuki pulling leadcore, give a holler! Might jig for a bit too if I can locate some active ones.

Hey Walli, have you ever concidered taking someone out with you? I've been dying to get on the river this year and lost my boat to a hole I found from the last owner. Thought it would hurt to ask.

Sorry to hear about your boat, I broke the spline and bent the struts in mine last year, got it welded up and its been leak proof till about a month ago and now its leaking again, if its not able to be fixed I'll take the insurance money and put the money towards another one, got a line on a proV and the wife seems to be okay with it. I don't have a problem taking people fishing, I've taken alot of people down on the river over the years, where do you live? I'm fishing by myself 65% of the time, I could fit you in! grin.gif

That would be great Walli!! I live in St. Paul. I can meet you wherever. I've been off for a couple of weeks and have about a week and a half more off from work, so I'm open to any times. You can email me at s_e_hendricks@comcast.net and I'll give ya my cell number or you can just let me know a place to meet ya. I'll chip in for gass/bait. I'm having an adjuster look at my boat. There's the holes that are around a grand and then the transom is loose so that's another grand. I'm thinkin' I'll take the insurance money and use the trailer and motor on a new boat.

      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!
