Well, by the sounds of it, at least you made the rounds and got to experience different lakes and locations. Too bad you couldn't hit one day, one lake, that highlighted the weekend. I just wish I could have an open weekend to get up to the cabin and fish. Cut Foot crappies will start to bite better and Bowstring crappies will always be a hit or miss option. Jumbo sunnies on my lake will pick up too. The way things are lookin', I'll finally get back up in the area the weekends of 3/10 and 3/17.

Been kinda quite on this forum....hoping someone is having fun somewhere, someplace.

I caught about 50 fish (mostly small perch) in the high banks area on winnie. I kept 2 walleyes and half a dozen nice perch...would've been able to cover more ground if it wasn't so windy out

When does the ice fishing come to an end up there? And when usually is total ice out?

Glenn, it's called Lake Paglaroni. grin.gifgrin.gif

Depending on weather, I am planning on hitting URL for crapps during the better weekend day....it's only 1 hour 15 minutes from my place. Otherwise, I'll be at my usual haunts in the area both weekends. I'll let you know for sure later...perhaps we can cross paths.

As far as ice out in the area, end-April is the average. Depends on the amount of rain and amount of wind. I still ice fish right up until I can no longer get on the ice safely from shore. Can't tell you the times I've been out fishing when it's an easy hop to get on the ice in the AM, and then find a 12' area of open water from shore in the PM.....I have found that I cannot walk on water. grin.gif

So I should be good through the month of march then? I'll be sure to bring my rubber raft.

      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.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
