Just wondering if you guys were as pumped as I was to see that the DNR is uping the stocking numbers on fosters. That should make for even more drag squeling action. grin.gif

There sure are some nice fish in there. I caught 12 of them yesterday morning and had 2 21"ers and 7 between 15-18". One of the shorties i had was a colorful brookie. The average size was awesome. I went out there again this morning and it wasnt quite as fast. I had a 14", 15" and 16". But I did have a massive monster on. As i got him about 10' out from shore he started rolling and he snapped me off. I didnt know big trout rolled like that. It reminded me of a muskie. He was much bigger than the two 21" fish i had yesterday, i figured he was about 25-26". Probably the biggest trout i'll ever get a shot at around here.

there's definitely some lunkers in there. The biggest my buddy's pulled out of there pushed 28". He also caught a few 24"s. Of course, I never had the pleasure of pulling in a brute on fosters... frown.gif

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
