i pretty much know ice fishing is toast around here, but are these places still carrying bait, like minnows or waxies around here???????? headed to bowstring area friday morning so i called 2 places that sell bait up on hwy 6. both said they have no minnows and they heard the ponds froze out so noone is getting minnows.

But like your wife, they had a better idea than yours! 🤣

 

If you could swing through Little Falls or Brainerd on your way up, Da Fishin Hole, Fleet Supply and Baxter Fleet Farm probably have what you need.

 

Um, excuse me...  what you want. 😉

We're covered. Picked up waxies at Kiess's. They also had a pile of minnows.

 

Call my pal  George at the bait shop in deer river. He got plenty minnows to.he also said there is no more 2 layers of ice and only a couple beat up accesses.

He also has good news about the ice. Said a few accesses were getting beat up but there isn't any more of the 2 layers of ice.

Bet you can leave work a little earlier to make it to Fred's if you want.🤔 Because your probably not doin anything besides thinking about going fishing anyway & no one will notice.😉🙂

      FYI:  Few hours ago an ATV went thru narrows under bridge between North n South Center.  Zero - no injury’s n ATV out of water.   Odd to see fire crew wrap Caution tape around THIN ICE signs been there long time. Fun. Ok but come on man......THINK!   Do a lil recon n homework before heading out...each time. Might save yer life. Water is Dang COLD under that ice. Relax - have fun - be safe.   keep on Rocken!   T

      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.

      I am from Iowa we are planning a trip up to Big Trout Lake, I was wondering about the ice conditions (snow, slush, and thickness) any info would be appreciated.

      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.

      On a lake near Sugar. Got on to some great sunfish they were deeper than I thought 22 feet deep suspended at 14 feet. Nonstop for 2 hours a black tungsten jig worked best I did try plastics for a bit for building up confidence but the fish showed otherwise quickly. Went back to 3 euro worms 4 was to many . Then I got a 10.5 bluegill my first one and wouldn't you know it my phone was about 2 blocks away. So I let her go not going to keep a fish out of water to get a glory picture. Oh well next time. Get out while you can the lakes were good with the warm up but who knows in a couple of weeks. That was on Friday. Drilled a few holes for an older gentleman that just wanted to fish A while I was glad to help out enjoyed chatting with him. Then went out today almost the same thing but unfortunately near a community spot and within 2 hours everyone was out there and a dog peed on my fish house was not happy threw snow on the house cleaned when i got home I left soon after very rude people unfortunately and the fishing died right away oh well.
