Croixflats any luck in Afton? Where abouts does a guy access the river down that way? I fished around catfish bar from the wisconsin side last year didn't have much luck except for a couple sturgeon and a stray sauger here and there. Or are you going further south than that?

I just got back was a bust by the catfish bar. Had a few chasers and 1 14 inch crappie. Going out to the ymca flats tomorrow. I forgot did get 3 10 inch walley. Like clock work fish came around sunset but Like I said no takers.

Hit a patch of sand that previous fisherman left. dull my auger real fast. Talk to the guy next to us apparently these idiots were horsing around on the catfish with the wheelers and got stuck and brought the sand out with them and I found it. What the heck were they doing ripping up private land. mad

Average of 12 inches by catfish bar in Afton maybe thicker further north. It occurred to me there is less open water down there than previous years. Must be because of the power plant is releasing cooler water.

I'll be stuck using an old strikemaster now the nils is down till I get the new blades I ordered. Should Have ordered extra ones earlier. Oh well I'll have 2 now. Don't no when I'll have time to send the dull ones to Surface Tension.

The strikemaster is a good auger but not a nils.

If I catch them guy there gonna be picking sand off themselves for weeks. Na, just venting.

I'll have to get ya down here, fishing is slow but it is nice to have the hole lake practically to ourselves. Peaceful. Was fun watching the Trumpeter Swans other birds frolicking in the open water. Did I just say frolicking

Kept 2. A 10" and an 11" threw a couple back, caught a couple silvers. Then a guy came and set up 15' from me! So I left. Guess he wanted that spot worse than me.

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
