Ha ha - You guys can all breathe again.

Nasty weather out there this weekend! Rain, Sleet, lots of wind, and now finally some snow.

Made it out yesterday and got one pike about 24 inches while my partner in crime / guide got two in the low to mid twenty inch range as well. Saw lots of perch, bluegill, and also a few really nice bass.

All in all it was a GREAT two days. Learned a few new spots and made a great freindship.

Nice fish! My lovely wife pulled out a 12 1/2 pounder (northern) on a tip-up 20 yards from my spear hole not far from you (Turtle lake) this past weekend. The next day "Big Ed" slid into my hole and I choked. Now I've got nine months to relive that sorry moment until next season! I've enjoyed reading your posts as well as B & S's.

The wife got her fish the 23rd, my last day of spearing was the 24th, and her brother is a Conservation Officer so we're very legal! (He's the one who hooked me on spearing.) Metro MDAA banquet is March 10th at the Champlin Legion if you are interested...

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
