The bite was great yesterday. Myself and another guy pulled 12 fish. 1-15" the rest were 17" to 19". If you can handle the weather you should catch fish. We were jigging with shiners in 14 to 17 ft. We fished from 2:30 to 6:30, bite was pretty steady during day with a flurry of activity at sundown.

If you can handle the weather the fishing has been really good. We have caught nice fish in as shallow as 4ft and as deep as 20 ft. The shallow bite has mainly been a night bite.

Had another great day yesterday on Waska. Our fish were in same area again but had to slide out a little deeper. Through back a 25" and 23" fish. Kept a limit 2-15" and rest were 18.5" to 22".

Jason or Beer Bat, were either of you out last night? I was out from about 6-8. Caught a lot of 12-13in fish. When you guys did so well were you catching these too? I did manage a couple keeper fish. I'm not complaining it's nice to see the little ones just a lot of dipping your hand in 40 some deg water.

Unfortunately, I'm done for the open water season. Boats are now stored away, so I was not out last night. We did get a lot of smaller fish, but weeding through produced some eaters.

Went out on Waska this afternoon, a fair number of boats, had to watch for some ice still left. My partner and I picked up 4 walleyes. Will continue until hard ice up. Lots of divers on the lake.

I was surprised how the lake refroze last nite. Forget about the starbuck marina for 06, perhaps can get boat in by Waters Edge, we are putting in at Glenwood beach, but even today at noon it is a maybe deal.

Sunday afternoon the DNR access was frozen up so we tried the beach access, but it was too shallow for my boat with a bunk trailer. I wouldn't try getting in unless you have a small boat with a roller trailer. If we get a little wind with this warmer weather the DNR access should open back up though.

Fished Waska this afternoon great day. Me and a buddy put 9 fish in the boat, rookied up on about 7 other bites. Fish ran 16" to 23", shiners and jigs in 17 to 20 feet,we were the only boat on the lake, hopefully weather holds out this week so I can do it again this weekend.

About one more year and you will no longer have to consider yourself a rookie.Most of catch enough during the summer when their harder to catch,so we can go hunting in the fall instead of fishing.JUST KIDDING. give a call you've got my number.

      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!
