Went out today on a lake in the north metro in search of some big bluegills. I found a spot in 7-9 ft of water that was just full of nice green weeds. Had to use the low power mode on my FL20. I drilled one hole, dropped my flasher down, and immediatly caught an 8.5 inch gill, so I grabbed the auger and drilled maybe 20 holes. I used a blue marmooshka tipped with either Gulp! waxies or red and white maggots. My girlfried used my last lindy pounder in glow/green tipped with red and white maggots and a slip bobber. We had to hole hop a little after a few fish out of each hole but the bite was really consistant. We fished for about an hour and a half and came home with 16 gills between 8.5 and 9.25 and realeased another 10 or so. All in all it was a great day to be out.

Today i fished the same area. When I showed up there was about 15 people right on top of where I fished yesterday. They must have been watching from a distance yesterday. I fished with my Dad for about an hour and we caught 10 that were between 8.5 and 9.25 again. We caught around three times that many that were smaller as well. Today the blue marmooska tipped with red spikes was what worked, along with a power noodle rod, for the light biters. Another good day on the ice, just not as productive as yesterday.

I got out today and went to a spot I tried during the week with a bunch of perch for my efforts. I moved 3 more times with nothing of any size to show for my efforts until the last spot. I drilled along a weedline on an inside turn that was basically creating a pocket in 8ft of water. Thats where I found the bigger bluegills. Berkley gulp! waxies in natural and a pink and white fatboy was the ticket today. The fish werent agressive as I really needed to barely quiver my rod. Things should start to heat up in the next few weeks with the warmer temps on the way.

I went out today and fished for a little over an hour. I didnt mark alot of fish but the ones I did I caught. I used a kodiak jig tipped with red spikes and fished 5-7ft of water in the weeds. I caught about 10 thick bluegills and average size was between 8.5 and 9". These warmer temps we have coming up shuld put the fish into high gear.

I still cant get a dang 10" out of that lake. I have 2 buddies that have gotten 5 fish over 10". Those bigger fish are so picky though. You need everything perfect. When the water was clear a month ago i would site fish them and with the slightest bit of line twist they were just negative. I would think that they would all start to pour into the shallows soon.

      Try to keep in mind that the person you're talking to on the other end has nothing to go on but your description. It is not always that easy to explain things so another person who is only hearing the verbal or written explanation can fully comprehend what is being described. For example neither I or a colleague have been able to understand what this screw is you're talking about and we are both familiar with inline reels. Sometimes a  photo can speak volumes.   What I'm saying is maybe you're not being clear enough for them to understand the actual problem. Another tid-bit that may be helpful. Try to keep your composure and contain your frustration. It's most likely a failure to communicate that is causing the problem.

      A group of us recently made it up to Flag Island Resort for 3 days of multispecies ice fishing on Lake of the Woods. The accommodations and folks who worked at the Resort were top notch! Bending over backwards to put you on fish and make your trip one to remember.   The Fishing - Day 1 it was decided to stay, somewhat, close to the Resort in the MN side of LOTW to target Walleye, Sauger and Perch due to 24+ hours of snow. We got into pretty good numbers of fish and some quality fished showed up as well! Below is a video of that action from Day 1.

      Yup, I walk from the Landing so about 4.5/5 mile trek. It's not too bad when there are snowmobile tracks.   I appreciate the offer CigarGuy. I may take you up on it some day. As I cruise through my 40s, I'm enjoying the walk and what it does to help keep me in a semi-recognizable shape! My other family members don't enjoyed the shorter walk much better.

      I left up there this morning. I haven't seen the snow so packed down from snowmobiles all the way back towards your place. Should be able to have a fairly easy walk.....however, supposed to get some snow tomorrow and chances over the next few days. Do you walk out from the landing?  If I was in there when u come, I'd give you a lift/tow on my sled.
