I saw use2be this morning down at prescott. Hope you got the battery issue figured out. What am I doing wrong. I fished in various locations from the kinni to prescott and only managed one bite. 1/4 jig one gold and one other shiny orange with fatties. I could graph fish it was another thing to get them bite

All the fish I caught today came from the same lure, never had even a bite on the other rod, the jig that worked real well today is a buckshot gold 1/4 oz. When its cold out and gloves are needed feeling the fish becomes harder, I came up with a way to fish in the cold without having to wear gloves a while back and it seems to work fine, I take a hand /body warmer the adhesive type and cover my handle of the rod it keeps the hand nice and toasty, its a hot rod!

Sparkyaber, it was good to talk Saturday. Nice boat by the way. I'm still trying to figure out the electronics issue on the good ship lollipop. Was off the river after 2 frustrating hours and only one little sauger and one dead battery to show for it. Oh well, I'm kind of a pansy when it comes to cold so it didn't bother me to get off the water Saturday morning anyway. I WILL figure the issue out before I hit the river again though.

I tried fishing out there for my only time this month on sunday. I had a difficult time getting fish to bite. Not much going for others I talked to either. What a change from the bite of last fall. I had a couple fish steal my minnow and that was it. The fog was pretty thick sunday morning well illustrated by Walli1's photos. I was happy to see that bluffs launch was not froze up. The docks are still in.

Man,That makes me feel a whole lot better about my abilities to catch fish after reading your reports and not seeing one net come out around Prescott Sunday. Missed two fish in 8 hours of fishing. I was pretty Bummed out on the way home after seeing Walleye1s' post about whoopen on em Saturday. Riverdancer, Nice Rig ! I think that was you fishing near us on Sunday.

Does any sporting goods store have the adhesive type of warmers? I don't recall ever seeing these. Sounds like a great idea for any cold weather fishing. Scouting without your shanty while ice fishing comes to mind.

      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!
