Recommended Posts

I am trying to find a catch cover type spear hole cover but cannot find one. Catch cover said they do not make one. I have seen them, just not sure where to get them. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Did the same for my DIY wheel house hole covers only added pink poly insulation cut to hole size attached to the bottom of the hinged wood cover. Used velcro to hold open. Works great

@smurfy no spear holes just jig holes. Never leave it on the ice overnight so no issues with poly freeze.

Well first you need to get it on a lake before that could happen.🤣

      Crappies have been suspended in at 20 - 24 feet in 35 feet of water.  My first fish thru the ice EVER!!! on Koronis, to clarify though, this was my first day actually wetting a line
    • Huntin&Fishin
      Walleyes and or crappies?

      Thanks JB. Haven't been able to find anything about the campground at the boat launch, but did find some for Devil Fish, Chester and Esther based on your response. Much appreciated.

      I have not heard anything about slush on Trout. I was up there New Years and it wasn’t too bad but the fishing was really slow. Finally managed to ice one just before we left for the day. Hopefully I have good news to report when we get home next week.

      Good grief that's a nice speck. Your photographer took an amazing shot too!

      Roughly 4-5 miles. 28 ft water. Other resorts out in 30-32 ft, but doing about the same. This steady weather should be good hopefully. Good luck.

      Thanks for the report.   I'm headed up tomorrow morning for the weekend.  Going with a couple buddys and their wheelhouse, either Cyrus or Morris point it sounds like. I'll be happy with a bunch of 14" saugers for a dinner, I'm just along for the ride and 🥃 's this weekend 😎 How far out were you with Sportsman's?

      Im still primarily rockin’ original Rapala fillet knives but I pair the 4” and 6” together as one.   The 4” excels on panfish and detail work like getting the last of the rib line out of any fish. The 6” handles the game fish and skinning all the fishes.   I showed up in group filleting party at Devils Lake last year with my trusty pair and was laughed at for the 4” knife at first but was just about begged for it by the end of the trip.   I tune up the blades of both sharpener/hone combo after each use.  Always ready to go.

      Love my Cutco Fisherman’s Solution:  Oldie but Goodie.  Got it as a birthday present from pappy when I was a teen.--knife is now near 30 yrs old and it still has it's tip.  (I particularly love the adjustable/extendable blade.--Agree with Hookmaster about flex:  Extending blade gives more flex to it when skinning.)   (of note, I also keep a short, skinny rapala fillet knife in the tackle box to preferentially use when filleting bullheads--I use a different fillet techinique for bullies and cats…) I see no problem with that!.😁 (I've come to believe you can never have too many ever since the one time I found myself without my Cutco:  I Caught an unexpectedly nice mess of sunnies shore fishing.  Didn't have my fillet knife. (DOH!)  Filleted the lot with a stiff bladed paring knife. (only thing available.   Awful!)  The experience was such that the end result is that I now keep extra fish-fillet-blades stashed anywhere I may need them... (car, tackle box, mother-in-laws, as well as a few other spares just-in-case...)

      Just got home from LOW. Fished last 2 days out of Sportsman’s Lodge. Brother and I had a meal up there and brought home a limit, but it was all we could do to get them.  16.5 and 19 were our biggest. Mostly 14 inch saugers.  Fish were tight to the bottom and most caught on dead sticks. They would look at anything we jigged, but not much for taking it. Great trip any time I can fish. Was our first time ice fishing on LOW, looking forward to it again someday.
