Lots and lots of rough fish

And crappies/if you can find them,the best time to hit them is after ice out

There are a few northerns in it. Not as many as there used to be. Also some crappies,gills and perch but most are small. Get's hit pretty hard too.

Ive never fished the lake, but I have been driving by there the last couple of days, and during mid-day, mid-week, there was on average at least 10 people fishing out there.

Little Stanchfeild is really nothing more than a back water of the Rum river,so migration is a issue too. Certain times of the year will be better than other times.If it swims in the Rum there is a good chance it'll be swimming in Little Stanchfield lake too..

      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.
