The only time slot I have not really pursued this year is from 9:00 p.m. - 5:00 a.m. Have I been missing odd night bites all year in SE Mn?

Im gonna close out the year on Tetonka this weekend.

Wish I had more info on your spot but I will manage to find a corner some where to set up on.

If you see a blue 8x19 Lodge on the ice stop by and say Hi.

I will have CB on channel 15 and GMRS on 11.

Hope everyone has much success this last weekend for eyes.

Email me if anyone wants to hook upon the lake.

Are you telling me Tetonka doesn’t have a foot or better ice?

I haven’t been out there in over a month but I am assuming there is 16" plus.

(I will be checking before I go out, the question is more of a generalization.)

Dont think I found your spot as I was all alone but I did find simmiliar results in mud at about 17'.

Ended up being a good weekend. Some sorting on the perch but landed 2 limits for 4 guys and a few bonus eyes for a nice fry.

Gills where on the camera but would never bite.

The ice and snow looked very threatening but we decided to hang tough. Sunday morning we chipped 1/4" of ice off of the side of my shack and pulled it right in with no problems. Guessing about 6" of snow on the lake and minor drifting around areas that had already been drifts or old banks.

Was a good season on the ice for eyes. Still many more opportunities for panfish.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
