Hey just thought I would pass on a tip that is proving to be very productive as of late.

Many people on LOW, Red Lake River and surrounding lakes are getting some real good action useing Rattle Raps through the ice... I have never used them in the winter but they are seeming to bring them in like crazy??? Drop it down and jig like crazy... I gave it a go today and it worked..

Another tip is that I started to test out my cat baits under the ice.. and they are working. ... not for cats though.. but Pike are chomping them up.... two nice pike today on the cat bait. I don't give out all my secrets but if you search the forums you will find my bait of choice... I did however modify it a little today.. but that might be posted if you ask real nice :-)

crank up the heaters and jig...........................

Hey Wiskers how was fishing after I left last night? Still having them jumping around in the wrong hole? Didn't see your truck this morning did you make it out at all this morning? When you going out fishing again?

Wiskers,

The rattle trap thing is an old northern hunters trick. Some guys will put down dead suckers and put a hookless rattle trap down between them and "call 'em in". It's amazing how much noise those little things make!
You find any decent eye fishing?

fishin man... I was down there yesterday all day... Only seen suckers and cats. I am going again Friday.. gonna move the houses. That Big Pike in the other hole dancing on top of the water was quite a sight.... My heart pounded for at least an hour after that one. LOL LOL ... For the rest of you, I caught a nice Pike the other day in the dam. It was about 8#.. Well I have two holes in my house about 2feet by 3 feet. Well I caught the pike in the right side hole but the pike insisted on going out the left hole and dance on top of the water twice soaking the fish house.. LOL... until he got wrapped around the camera cord.. cody spotted him wrapped up but it was too late, he shook the hook loose and was gone, giggling his little hiney off at us i bet.. As a matter of fact.. the more I think about it that may have been a Muskie??? It was very light colored and had dark markings and a real long nose.... or a cross... Hummmmmm.... Wish we could have seen it longer..

scoot.... Ya I guess your right. I guess what ever makes noise will bring in any fish for investigation... I have not gotten it to work yet but only tried once. I am going to start trying it more to see if maybe it will bring in cats too..

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
