I got my daughter out for a couple of hours on the boat today. The best part of the day is that my outboard started on the 4th pull...cool! We used a little bit of every plastic we had at various depths...and turned up nothing. We tipped the jigs with fathead minnows as well. Only had two hits at 25' fow, and whatever it was it hit hard. It was still a hoot though, hey - on the boat literally 8 days after drilling holes through the ice - not bad!

Here's to the start of outings on the boat, instead of siting on a bucket!

I was down there enjoying the weather too. I was definatly not enjoying the bite!

It has been a long time since I had that tough of a day. We tried everything from pitching jigs to vertical jigging and even tried handlining for a while. Only a few bites for our efforts.

Yesterday was the first time I fished the river. I don't have anything to compare it to. I was reading through some of the other forums, and people are saying they think the fish have plenty of food to choose from. One guy noted all of the dead shad floating around, and he believes the fish are full. I did notice lots of dead fish floating around.

I'm gonna try and get out next weekend...maybe warmer temps will help.

There are lots of dead shad... but it is not unusual... The bite will pick up as the water temp. reaches that magical mid 40's temp... Good fishing ahead this week.

Sunday was none the better. Only one one 16" walleye C&R'd before storm chased us off. I'll be back though in anticipation of the real bite!

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
