Fished just north of the kinni in 20-25 feet of water. Fishing was slow and I missed a few real good bites because my anti-reverse was intermittantly not working with the cold weather frown.gif

I managed to catch 1 keeper walleye and 1 white bass. I missed at least 2 other good bites that I should have been able to hook.

I fished from 7:30-11:00

1/4 oz fireball with stinger

fatheads

6lb test line

I saw what looked to be a local guide out there with some customers trying to catch some walleyes. They didn't get one bite. Right as they were leaving I hooked my walleye. hehe

Hey burchoid...maybe you should get some better equipment like me wink.giftongue.gif. Anyway glad to hear that you are getting into a couple of them. I will be up there again in 2 weekends and hope to be able to get out with you to pool 4 if that works. It looks like they are starting to go. Let me know what you think about that and I will catch ya later.

Burchoid, I have a couple of Pinnacle reels that do the same thing when they get cold. I have been told that getting them cleaned and having grease added can help this problem. I think I may be purchasing shimano or guide series reels from now on, as they don't have that problem as much.

Dude ... its a $200.00 Daiwa SSII (2nd gen SS)

I should call Daiwa and ask them whats up. This reel is supposed to be bullet proof.

My other shimano's never have a problem but I have 2 Daiwas now that skip on the antireverse frown.gif

All I use is Shimano and they work smooth as silk in the cold.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
