Southmetro,

Have only been out once form shore this year. Had a very good sized cat on by Lillydale, but it got hung up in fallin timber.

Going to Mpls or St paul from shore this weekend. I spent the last month on boat and getting ready to do some hardcore shore fishing. Nothing beets sitting back and a large group of buddies with our polls in line at shore. Maybe a campfire and some good food. Plus coming down from north and my gas guzzler boat motor, shore fishing is a little cheaper and less setup and take down time. Easy!

Mid July my brother-in law and his buddies set up a all day carp trip on a Sat... It is know as the "Carp Classic". I from shore in Lillydale park. Years ago, we drew a rather large crowd. In past years, the crowd has slimmed down. It sure is still fun. Early morning to late evening carp fest.

Well, I hope to have a story or two from this weekend. Will report when I do. Good luck!

      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.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
