Try posting this in the South Central forum or the South West forum and you will have better luck. I work in Fairmont and it has some good fishing for crappies and an occasional walleye. I hear the bass fishing isnt too bad either. There are a couple other lakes with some decent fishing also. Good luck and welcome to FM!!!

Not sure where trimont or fairmont is, but if you are referring to Fox Lake in Rice County...I've fished it a couple of times.

Both times I came back with walleyes, trolling with spinners and leeches in shallow water. Somewhat close to the boat access. They were small, and almost looked like saugers. Fun though...caught a few northerns as well.

Hope this helps.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
