I have to give a shout to BigMusk411(Matt). He was kind enough to offer an open seat for today. We caught Walleyes 16-22" and some Smallies thrown in. Nice guy, and good with the fishing pole. Thanks again for the trip. Mike.

Looks like you had a good walleye day Matt.

I took my son down to pool 2 by the St. Paul airport and we didn't catch a thing. It is a completely different kind of river fishing down there (our first time on that stretch) and it will take a few times to figure it out.

We should fish our favorite upper river stretch together some time, since I always run into you there!

Kevin, I was still in pain. I Got rearended(MY TRUCK)and totalled Thursday night. The shiner was from my airbag, and to top it off Matt got the biggest fish of the day. Where's the sympathy. All kidding aside, anybody know where I can get a good used truck!!!!!

Randy, we should give it a shot some time. It would be nice to compare notes. If the weather cooperates I'll be back out this Sunday. Hopefully I can get a few more eyes before I have to put the boat away for the season blush.gif

      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!
