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.

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas. We also fund scout projects, playground equipment and many types of sports equipment for area teams.   For more information on the LCRA or to register for fishing, go to www.lcraonline.org

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.

      Like someone else said, some of the places with the old school $2-$5 beer and $6-$10 burger pricing have also been owned for a long time and were paid off long ago. According to the county website, the landing has 300+ feet of lakeshore (which isn't cheap), a tax bill that's 3 times what the VC pays, 10 times the dock space to maintain and given that it's was purchased relatively recently, they likely a mortgage to pay. The Crescent is also a relatively recent purchase. But the Crescent has a less expensive location, lower taxes and is more centrally located in terms of road access (important during the 4-5 months of the year when boating and snowmobiling taper off).   Overhead is going to play a role in the pricing of any business. You have your total sales minus your overhead and that's your profit. You can't sell the same thing at the same price with significantly more overhead because you're not going to make any money. Yes, you can offset low margins with a higher number of sales, but with a very short snowmobile season and a relatively short boating season that can be pretty difficult.   I'll be the first to agree that the pricing is on the high side, but the food is also a step up from some of the other options with lake accessibility. My guess is that after evaluating the various price points, the owners decided that the current business model is where they stand the best chance at turning a profit and keeping the doors open. If $2 beers and $5 burgers were a slam dunk way to make money, I'm sure that they'd be doing it because it would be a lot easier.   Whether it be lakeside bars/restaurants or marinas, there are less and less of them every year because the cost of lakeshore and the taxes (which usually increase after a recent sale) make it almost impossible to compete with places that were paid off a generation ago. When these restaurants and marinas close, townhomes and cabins usually replace them so I'm happy to pay the prices if it means another option when it comes to eating or grabbing some drinks on the lake.

      I see I should have done a more thorough search. The smitty sled looks to be the ideal solution to my issues. Thanks guys. Now I have a project.
