Usually by the time the info gets out that there is a good bite down there it is already tailing off. I would look to any other deep holes in the river that you can access and have decent ice.

The "cut" down stream of Riverside park would be a great place to start, but I have no idea of the ice conditions and with the current in that area is may not be safe. Other places to look would be downstream of Eckstein landing, there is some nice deep holes in that area as well.

The walleye bite is far from being good, a few at minicon and also a few down by the wastewater treatment plant, Does anyone ever get any crappies on the river, I heard of some farmer from st george that gets them down by courtland backwater area but never seen one of the fish crazy

I've landed a couple crappies on the river, none through the ice though. Mine were caught in the backwaters in and around heavy vegetation/trees/stumps/etc. Biggest one was a tad over 14" and had a real green/blue tint to it - cool looking. Few and far between though for the amount of time spent fishing, I have not found them 'schooled up' by any means.

I know of some being caught through the ice, most were in the backwaters. "The cut" that goes into the backwater downstream of Minicon has held some crappies in the past.

Minicon madness has begun, the bite is hot and heavy my buddy has been getting in on a very good bite, I saw pics to prove it. 8-12 feet has been the magic number . Morning and evening hours, I wish my work schedule would alow me to go ,only a weekend warrior, frown

Fever

Six hours of prime fishing 4am to 10., no marks, no bites... using glow jigs and fat heads. I'm sure there are better places. I learned my lesson. I too will stick to the Crappies up in my neck of the woods and save the gas & time.

It sure looked hairy last Monday, I didn't check it out today when I got into town, but I wouldn't venture out alone or in the dark.

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
