I've caught some decent crappies and sunnies through the ice on Fannie. I do know there are some monster largemouth in there, but that darn ice makes flippin' the cattails a little tough this time a year.

Fannie and Skogman can be great panfish lakes, And both can be phenominal pike lakes!

Good point, Cory!

In all seriousness, a buddy of mine went ice fishing on Winnebago in Wisconsin a couple years ago and fished walleyes in 6 or 7 feet of water right in the cane beds. They used 3 foot rods that had the action of a pool cue, 50lb. braided line, and a drag locked down with a vise grip. He said he didn't even reel when an eye slammed the bait. He just walked backwards. That's about as close to winter flippin' as you're gonna get.

COOOL!~

I would LOVE to give that whirl! Maybe use the flippin sticks and stand 10 feet from the hole!
What a cure for cabin fever! Now! If I could only figure out how to drill a hole under a dock??? Keep my skipping fresh!

I live right by Fannie and will try to remember to check the ice tomorrow and give you guys an update.

Last year Fannie was listed as one of the top 5-8 pan fish lakes(can't remember which mag, I think it was MN Sportsman).

I'll shoot you the ice report tomorrow evening, if all goes well/ I remember. Life has been hectic.

Be safe-RR4

Fannie ice check @ 4:00 p.m. 12/11/03,

I went to the north end access off of HWY 95 and found that there was 5 1/2 inches. I put the spud bar through about 100 feet out.

The South East side access had 6 inches.

There were two- four wheelers out on the ice outside a shanty.

A snowmobiler was driving around out there also, he appeared to have no worries.

Be safe- RR4

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
