Heading out to Ripley (near Litch) tomorrow to chase pannies. Anyone been out there lately and had any luck? What part of the lake, etc...

I'm not from the area, just heading out there to take my grandpa out. Appreciate the info...

Look to where all the people are, if any. If not look out along the rushes on northside of lake, stay south of them the sunnies may start biting soon there. Sorry not much info but its a starting point. Slim

Thanks for the info. Anything to be concerned with regarding ice conditions; springs, etc. I will be going out on snowmobile with the portable in tow. Could be a mess with this weather... crazy.gif

Tried the North Central side by the reeds, fishing was terrible. Moved over to the North West side with similar luck but the weather was outstanding! Everyone had a good time but only managed one 4" perch. Next time I guess.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      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.

      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.
