i was out today cut alot of holes till we found them in 12 fow got them on a orange jig and i dont know if i can say the name of the plastic trairer or not so for now i wont but you had to pound the jig off the bottom and lift it and hold for a few sec and drop it back down and when you would lift it you would have weight on it then set the hook, we the wife got there drop there i put the under water eye down so she could watch and did she have a blast. i dont know if it was the time of day or just luck that i found them today but from about 9 to 2 we got them,

Sounds like a fun day. Were the fish still biting at 2? I'm heading there tomorrow afternoon and I was wondering if the afternoon bite is good. Can you drive most everywhere out there now? What is the ice thickness?

I fished St. James yesterday. The sunnies were a tough bite all day according to the fishermen on the lake. We tried several spots and depths and finally stopped in 9' in some weeds. the camera showed several sunnies down there but really had to coax them to bite. ended up with about 15 sunnies and kept 6. Not the bite that was out there last winter.

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
