chris63> The resort I fish out of provides all the fathead minnows we can go through. I always stop at Log Cabin bait and pick up shiners as well. Some days the fats outfish the shiners and vice versa, I just want to have both options available to me. Good luck and hang on Bill

For me it is river shiners as our choice, however, we also bring an assortment and see what works. I did get a 28" walleye on a small crappie minnow.

I'm from South Dakota, and I'm bringing up some night crawlers next weekend. I'll let you know how that goes.

Get some of each. Fatheads, shiners, & rosies (if you can find em). You never know what they want that day.

Don't stop 5 bucks short of a good fishin' trip!

Chubs were the minnow of desire for the fish this weekend out of long point. I think this time of year towards spring they like a minnow with a little more meat an scent, i dont know, its what ever they want at the time they want to bite. Today i caught to nice eye's back to back with a chub, then grabed a shinner an nothing till I put on a chub an then bamm, Kowalleski. boar

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
