Fishing this past weekend out that way was quite good both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was fast and furious and the entire group got mass numbers. Sunday a tad tougher but still darn good #'s of fishes.

I'd bet you'll slay 'em! We were about 75 yards from one of Arnesons huts and if they put you in that one you are gonna be busy all day!

I was at Arnesens 3/8 - 3/10.

We fished in the same house all 3 days and it was due west off of Gull Rock in 29 ft.

Best LOW trip I have ever had by far.

We brought home limits of walleye, almost limits of sauger, 10 perch; and had a meal one night up there.

There were 5 of us(2 adults and 3 boys that were all 11 years old).

Only 2 over 20 inches, one of which my son got that was 25.5 inches. His biggest walleye to date.

Thursday we got roughly 50 fish, and kept 24 total. Size was small(saugs were 12-13 and wallys were 13+). Nothing over 14 inches except the 25.5.

Friday was a tad slower on numbers, but size went up nicely. We caught 40 to 45 fish and kept 26. Saugs were 14+ on the keepers, and the wallys averaged close to 15 inches. Got one sauger at 17.5 inches.

Saturday we fished 8am to noon. Very slow except for the first 30 minutes basically. We got wallys to fill limits for home, and came up 2 shy on limits for sauger for home. We iced about 15 fish total.

Best colors were glow red, and even glow pink.

Secondary choice on color is tough. Friday we caught fish on the entire spectrum of colors. If we didnt have any bites for a period of time, just one person had to change to something completely different, and on several occasions it would catch fish within minutes of hitting the bottom.

Red, pink, gold, silver, green, chartreuse, black, blue....

Change often. If you think you are changing too often, increase the frequency of changing even more. Seriously, it worked.

      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!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
