Hey Jim,

Did you have anybody stop in for minnows this weekend and head out ice fishing??? I was just wondering how this ice is holding up?? I went to Gander this weekend and blew about $400 on a new Lowrance H20C GPS unit with the Lakemaster chip for Minnesota. I will have to drop by and let you check it out...It will be quite the gadget for hunting lakers on Burntside next year! smile.gif Anyhow, let me know how the ice is holding up...I just might go after some crappies this week if the weather holds out.

Later,

Justin

Justin,

The ice seems to be holding out, but no one is fishing. Not that I can blame them with the wind and cold weather. A person may be able to squeak out some crappie fishing on the ice for another week. I'll be at the shop from 8-1 the next few days, cleaning the tank and charcoal, preparing for a new season. We should have fresh bait in and be operating within 10 days, and continue, for the most part, until the end of the month. Will take off April 26-30th to go to the lake home and cabin show at the Mpls. Convention Center. After that, shop open and doing construction projects. Stop in whenever the truck or car is there. smile.gif

      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.

      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.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      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.
