Ralph nice cat,I now have seen the extra large northern at Games Henchun creek several times and so have many others.

Aguy and his special gal made our day when without much coxing she would put on her waders and walk on side of creek down to Henchun and back through streama nd give us a glimpse of many northern walleye carp etc.

In return we kept throwing nice suunies from pier into their bucket.

Saturday stopped by and many buckets were filled with good eater sunnies.

Crappies were starting to come in.

Sparcebag,

We had 12 keepers and THREW BACK anything over 20 and a couple small ones. I have your number now and I'll try to get you out there with me. I've been pretty busy that it's even kept me from being out since. We were using a lindy rig and a leech.

Forget the walleyes...we've been fishing cats on the mississippi--actually just got done a little bit ago--nailing the 5 to 10lbers, especially between 10:30p and 12:00a using chicken livers. Nothing like a beautiful night, a campfire (we cooked trout in tinfoil--mmmmmmmm!) and a tight line every few minutes. What a blast. Oh and the beers weren't bad either smile.gif

I might get out for walleyes again in a couple weeks but we'll have to see.

good luck to all fishermen this weekend...I'm going to bed now and sleeping until we have to be at the field tomorrow for our 1:30pm game!

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Eyeguy with the new auger you got it will buzz through some ice easy as pie no worries

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
