  1. Past hour
  2. Yeah, but man I bet the walleyes were on fire! That weekend was crazy. First time I can recall Metro Transit pulling buses off the road. We took videos of the kids sledding down our ice covered driveway and down to the neighbors driveway.
  3. Today
  4. Absolutely, we were pretty bummed out the day before the trip when we officially pulled the plug but the morning we planned to leave we woke up to the roads in the twin cities covered in a solid layer of ice so just getting out of town would have been hard. Then we saw the amount of snow falling up north and it was obvious we made the right call. It simply wouldn't have been safe to go.

    Jiffy Propane Ice Auger Spins At Idle

    I also had a neighbor who had the same issue with a jiffy auger. It was an older model so he didnt bother to have it repaired. He eventually replaced it with a eskimo propane auger.

    If I fillet using option 2, I usually lose some belly meat. Option 1 I get all the belly meat but I take the ribs out a different way than most. Rick at Highbanks Resort showed me. I'll have to post a video because it's too difficult to explain. Now I'll have to go fishing!!
  7. Thought I'd post pictures of what I did. I used 1" PVC pipe and designed it so the bottom of the portable is about 7" above the bottom of the skis. I would guess the sled doesn't weigh more than 15 pounds and that might even be exaggerated a little.

    An example of some crappies smoked yesterday. Call me crazy but I will just eat another fish instead of the thin slice of meat

    Few years ago I started cutting the rib totally off meat and all on panfish. Gets the tiny bone out also that I don’t like to chew up. Such a small amount of meat is wasted and mostly breading any way.

    Yeah, never implied they weren't, or suggested someone should be ashamed. I did offer a solution, I thought?

    Lol. 80 seconds and full of bones. I would have two done and boneless
  12. Went out to Spring Lake on Wednesday evening. Lots of trucks out on upper prior and spring. Saw a 3/4 ton coming off prior. Probably 14” of ice on spring, left my truck in the parking lot and traveled by car from the winter access. We were targeting walleyes but no cigar. Picked up some perch along the way.
  13. Fished out by the airport around noon til dark on Jan 20 and 21, had about 10-12' of clear ice in 9-10' FOW. snow drifts can get about 18' deep, but no problem for a snowmobile. Most people walked out. Now for the bad news, lots of lookers, but only 4 bites in 9 hours of fishing. We did get a nice 42" sturgeon on a tipup with a lite pike minnow. that was all the excitement we had. Any jigging motion and the fish would bolt. Hope it improves soon, others out there had similar results. Good luck.

    Although I support a wise person who knows their limits: phobias/Nerve damage are nothing to mess with. Gimrius: Catch and release is nothing to be ashamed of! I salute you! IceHawk: I do the "back down over rib cage" way--It kinda works as a "one size fits all" method that works whether it's a sunny, wally, norty, bully or even "weird" fish I've been experimenting with eating of late like suckers/redhorse (They're surprisingly good!)

    interesting and I say the rib cage is still in the fish.....

    Good Fillet Knife.

    I personally use a Rapala electric to get the fillets off, then a regular wood-handle Rapala fillet knife to remove the rib cage and skin. But the real reason I'm chiming in is to ask if anyone has seen this video of how to fillet a perch in 10 seconds? Doesn't really seem to matter what knife you use with this technique - although I can't really tell if the rib cage was removed or not:

    I had a really bad accident with a filet knife when I was a teenager and to this day I have a phobia of filet knives. I have permanent damage to the nerves in my thumb because of it. So lately I have just been releasing all of my fish...

    Good Fillet Knife.

    One thing that's interesting being at a Seasonal resort all summer is watching how so many folks clean and fillet their fish in the cleaning shack. And all the different fillet knives folks have. You can really pick-up some good hints. I'm probably more like Wanderer in that I just spent hours in a boat catching these fish. I take my time to do the best job I can at filleting them out. I do marvel at one of my buddies pan fish filleting. Freaky-fast and clean!

    How many holes today? By the looks of the size, may be you should have stayed home?

    I use them to bone out and trim venny also. Perfect knife for it. The electric I have found works nice on ribs. I think the cutco is probably about 35 years old also. Not 30. Had it sharpened a few years back by the rep here. Cool knife she said.

    Second, but would be willing to change if I owed a skins zit. Most of my fish are cleaned with a 6" rubber handled rap. Use a 4" for walleye cheeks, and also have a larger one for big northerns. Mmmm, those gills were good tonight. I did get a Cutco, for a gift a while back, decent knife. Just comfortable with the newer Raps, prefer rubber over the wood for handles. I know I must have quite a few fillet knives, but none as old as that cutco eyeguy has.... That adjustment comes in handy for large gators on the Cutco.

    I fillet around the rib bones right away. And I have my own unique way of doing pike. Don't ask.

    I'm same as you Icehawk

    Good Fillet Knife.

    I have a Cutco and a Rapala electric that I use 99% of the time. If I use the electric, I do it the first way, but I leave it attached to the tail to take off the fillet. When I use the Cutco I usually do it the second way. I also have 2 regular rapalas. One old wood handled 5” and a rubber handled 7” that I got my son to learn to fillet with. The 5” gets used a ton in the house for all kinds of things. Used it last weekend to slice a veni roast up for making jerky. It’s a sweet little rig that can get in all the tight spots.
