5 posts in this topic

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 for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
