Well the boat is full of gas, the rods and reels have been checked, redtails are plentiful in the bait well and I'll be getting up in a matter of hours to get on the river, my son is having a bunch of friends over to pull a allnighter, doubt I'll get much sleep. A friend of mine is going to be at my house by 5am. Should be on the river by 5:30 for sure,plan on fishing till 10 or so! The fish should be active and bunching up with feed bags on! It's going to be a great time on the water! grin.gif

Got on the river by 5:30, had dreams of having a livewell full of tails by 10am but no dice. Did however end up with two eyes and a sauger that had eggs in it and a couple throw back eyes. (Yes turk I found eggs again) Caught a couple smallies worthy of a few photos and had a great time!

Made it out and on the water by 6:30: two cats and one sheephead-. Jig and a minnow. I think I have one or even two bad batteries, trolling motor dead by 9:30. And we were done. Maybe tommorrow.

Got to the river early but the bite was slow, the highlight of the morning a 24 1/2 eye which when back in to fight another day, 2 other small eyes and a nice smallie, just that one releaser made my day, nice time!

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Sure wish that it would freeze up before the snow in the forecast comes

      I did get out on the ice, but unfortunately it was the ice on my driveway.  Spent a lot of time spreading salt and sand!  No time for fishing this weekend.

      Speaking of towers, does anyone know what the tower is for on 24 north of the VDL?
