      Does scented make a difference? How about some different ones for walleyes?

      @popriveter  Thanks man,  Glad I could get you pumped for the season. It was exciting to get out that early this year. Really sucks this warm weather came in and going set us back though. We were on track for a really nice ice season too. I was out in the Metro on 4-5" for few days last week before it got warm. Ice is still there just looks nasty now. Really bummed. You may have to drive north for some decent ice. Either way fingers crossed for cold snap soon. Be safe and goodluck this season!

      @Bucketcastle lol...Thanks Man. There was a lot of ice checking before this video was made too. Pretty much 4-5" everywhere I drilled.

      Some plastics will last thru many crappies. Some maybe one. 😁 Slug bugs. Mayflies. Wishbones. Wedgees

      Please show some pics of good crappie plastics. Good thing is one scoop of minnows will stay alive forever in the winter.

      Yep. Leave the bait home and jiggle jiggle jiggle. 🐟🐟🐟

      Looks to be super unpredictable still, I heard a few brave souls walking out of Warrod but Arnesens just posted online that they had ice but now gone with the wind. I would imagine it's a few weeks out as it's a huge body of water

      Anyone out ice fishing the bays?

      I built confidence in plastics by going without bait. Amazing what you learn to do when plastics and artificials are your only options.
