2 posts in this topic

Fished a bay in 18 fow and caught like 15 runt sunfish. Moved to 32-35 fow on the break of a reef for some walleyes @ 3pm and only 1 walleye on the tip up w/ set rig and a rainbow.

I hope to get out again on thursday so please let me know how you are doing in the metro.

Good Luck

Same lake same day. Fished an inside turn that has a nice break and weeds on top. Tipup set in 17FOW with bare circle hook and large shiner and caught a 13" walter.

I was in 26FOW and caught 2 more going 13 and 14" on a fathead and tear drop on a bobber 2 feet off the bottom.

They all hit around that 20 min dusk flurry. Even got a perch that hit a shiner and a ton of lil perch. All fish released

I was in Wayzata bay

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      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.
