Fished hard for 3 days on Big Stone Lake and the bite was very, very tough. The nice Marked a lot of fish and just couldn't get them to bite. Did manage some dandy perch and trophy gills,(released) but not a lot of numbers. Saturday late afternoon we stuck 3 gills over 10". My nephew had one that was at least 10 1/2" but released it before I could measure or get a pic. Sunday we had 2 more at or just under 10". Had to downsize to get bit. Did catch a couple on set lines with fatheads. Spoons didn't get bit often. Tungsten jigs or flies tipped with plastics or eurolarvae got most of the action.
Found fish in or near basin areas near shallower rock structures. We would drill, drill and then drill some more. Once we found fish we would make smaller moves or wait out schools cruising through the area. Travel conditions were excellent. Just had to watch out for the occassional drift or old plowed road. Here are a few pics from the weekend.
Well we wrapped up a few days up north. Tried a lake I’ve been to a few times in past but seem to always struggle at getting anything going. It took a lot of miles on the sled and be willing to go out in subzero temps and strong winds but I was able to contact a massive amount of gills. Ended up catching around 300 I figure. Biggest was about 9”- 9 1/2”. A lot of dandies over all. Kept a few meals to hold me over for a while. Next day went back and threw out a tipup with suckers I had left over from a few weeks ago. I literally could not keep the flag down! ( haha what a funny sentence!!) it was not stop flags and fish! I even had one spool me as I running up to it! So much fun. The gills were all in about 14fow but were stacked from bottom up to about 5 ft down. It’s One of the clearest lakes in the state So I was able to sight fish them and let me tell you if your able to sight fish gills its one of the most entertaining things I can think of doing. Even we’re able to put a decent amount of miles on the sleds. The trails up there were the best I’ve seen and were perfect shape for riding.
Net fishing in Asia is a traditional fishing method. I hope you enjoy.

Found this and would like to see your opinions....
The DNR is in the process of finalizing plans for the Quality Bluegill Initiative, revealed last summer in the hope of going public early this spring.
Implementation would happen in 2021. The goal was to greatly increase the number of lakes in the state with reduced limits for bluegills in hopes of growing bigger sunfish.
Big sunfish, as anybody who's dunked a worm knows, is among the rarest of fish in Minnesota. A true trophy, 10 inches or longer, might be tougher to catch than an eight-pound walleye. Decades of liberal bag limits, anglers keeping too many big fish and the belief that you could never "overfish" sunnies took their toll.
The DNR spent the past several months identifying between 200 and 250 lakes on which it can cut the current statewide 20-fish limit to 10 or five sunfish. Lakes on the list needed to meet certain criteria, including public support and the biological capability to grow big bluegills.
Jim Wolters, DNR's area fisheries manager in Fergus Falls, said there are 13 lakes in Otter Tail County and 5 in Becker County under consideration for reduced sunfish limits.
Here’s the end of my fall open-water fish. (I can't wait 'til I can start casting again; Perhaps that's blasphemy to say during the heart of hard water season...)
These were mostly perch with one or two sunnies.
I adjusted my usual recipe: Made a pulverized dry batter of 1 part peanuts, 2 parts goldfish crackers, 1 part whole wheat crackers, 2 parts flour.
Dusted the fillets well and pan-fried in corn oil. Seasoned with a sprinkle of Cavenders.
(First time I’ve tried peanuts in a fry-batter and The “critics” (wife and 2 kids) gave it definite two thumbs up!)
Doesn’t look like there’s been much talk of recipes so perhaps this will start a thread as I'd love to hear if others here have "secret ingredients" to savor up their fishies.

I’d go as high of amperage you can afford and can get in a certain bank. 15 should suit you great. I got a 2 bank 12amp last spring but really wish I would have went with the 15 for a more faster recharge time between trips.
Getting a MinnKota Precision charger for my new boat, a 1875 Pro Guide. It will have a 24 volt Ulterra on the bow and 24 volt Vantage on the stern. The batteries are group 31 AGMs. I've always had 10 amp per bank chargers in the past. I will be spending more time on the water with this boat so draining the batteries down more. Is the 15 amp per bank better, worse or no difference? I am leaning towards the 15 amp for quicker charging. Getting a 3 bank so the starting battery will be topped off also.
Stopped by the dealership yesterday. The Helis 10 or 12 will fit but only if the gimbal mount is attached directly to the folding section. Any mount will make it to tall. I guess I'll be taking the graph off, not to big a deal.
Can I cut the quick connect from the vexilar charger and then cut alligator clips off my lithium charger and switch them with no problems? I know there would be no issue with the alligators on the vex charger. Curious about the lithium with quick connect. The new 20 has the quick connect.
