A few buddies and I are heading up to Big Chippewa in Brandon this weekend. Just wondering if anyone had an ice/fishing report you us. My buddy who has the cabin up there does not ice fish so we are kind of running at this one blind. Any info would be appreciated.

not sure on any fish biting but my boss had his spear house out there earler this year and he went out there after and there was like 8 inches of water on top of the ice. i did drive by the access yesterday and there are a couple of houses out there again so it myte be better. i know a good spot for northerns walleyes and panfish is the point of weeds strait out from the access and to the left a lil bit fint the drop off or the point and you should get fish there. hope this helps. my boss had his house rite in this spot and seen like a 8 pound walley and lots of smaller fish of all species. you myte even be able to see were he was at you could use that for a referance poing it you can tell were he was at and if you have a 4 wheeler or snowmobille id bring it.

Your best bet may be to fish Devils Lake, located right across the road from the SW end of Big Chippewa. There's likely to be a fair number of houses out there and a plowed road. You'll catch some crappies and sunnies and may even get a walleye or two. Devils is located a mile or two north of Brandon on the west side of the highway. Go past the lake and take the first left on gravel and you'll find where they are driving on, or where they typically drive on.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
