Well I started the day with alot of confidence in a good bite on eyes,but that faded fast.Newbie,I have to agree about the cold.I hit several spots today with only the silver bass active until this afternoon.About 1pm i checked out a spot i havent been to for a couple of years.1st fish was a nice slab crappie,after that it was one smallmouth after the other for three hours.Ended up with around 15 crappies and around 25 smallmouth biggest being very close to 4lbs,forgot all about the eyes for one day and it didnt seem so cold out either smile.gifFish were taken on jig and minnow and sonar baits

Hey croixeyes,

Just a quickie for you, how do you work your blade baits? I have hada limited success with them and have always assumed you just "ripped" them? I have tried both sonars and cicada's...do you have a preference? How about color and size? Thanks for the report as well. I'll be working my way down there this week sometime and sure hope the plastic bite kicks in soon!!!

Cbreeze.........Ive tried several brands of blade baits,the one i have most of my success with is a no name brand,I dont even know where I got it.Anyway,colors I like are similar to colors I jig fish with.Greens,chartruse,silver,are some of the main colors I use.As far as technic, I do a lift drop and hold method,fairly aggressive.A little more aggressive if Im fishing deeper and less in shallow.Most times im getting hit on the hold after the rip and drop .The zip lures work pretty well except I dont like the hooks they use,hedons dont seem to vibrate as much as some others.Just remember when using them to stay vertical at all times,youll get optimum vibration from the baits that way...Good luck out there...

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
