Well I still havent made it up there but tomorrow i am coming forsure. Ive fished all the lakes here in the benson area and fishing is horrible! Everything seems to be so small. My plan is to go to pocket tomorrow or is there anywhere else that I can go C & R a lot of fish? I need to have one good day down here in this area before I go back to Bemidji to college. Thanks everyone.

should be a good choice for numbers, juddfish...but you'll have to weed through a lot of small ones to find the slabs...they're there though..

hope it goes well...let us know!

Well it didnt go to good. I went to Pocket yesterday morning on the north end there was a ton of people fishing bluegills. So we fished gills and they were down there but just not biting! So we packed up and drove to little mary access and didnt look like to much activity so I went over to blackwell lake. Fished there for a while lots of sunfish on the vexilar but same problem as pocket they werent hungry! So we packed up and drove by mill lake and not any activity there so we went up to le homme deux found a good sharp break from 14-23ft set up there and only had 2 fish swim through on the vex. So I headed back home and on the way I swung into the Lake Ann public access (South of Reno) and there was around 4 rigs still there at 7pm So we decided to give it a try for an hour but never had a bite there either. So i dont know what to say, I cant catch anything down here this winter. Its back to bemidji next week smile.gif Goodluck everyone I know the fish are out there somewhere.

      I use the Clam Ice Armor--the ones for about $69.  Not great for dexterity but the warmest I have found.  Get a good muff like Cabelas sells with thinsulite and puta few hand warmers inside.  Work well and keep hands moderately dry. Or, get goretex/thinsulite mists and put a hand warmer in each one.  They slide off easily.   Haven't tried electric.

      Nope. Not even close.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.
