I went out with HT last night and caught a lot of small smallies. Biggest was 16 or so but the rest were pocket bass. HT caught some dandies with quickest catch and release method I've ever seen.

I figured out HT's secret. Gotta have a jet and a real powerful trolling motor to handle that current. I have a 50lb trolling motor and it kinda slows me down, but I can't "hover" in one area like HT could. Great more stuff to buy!

It was a fun time HT! Thanks for the trip!

No problem, EBass. It was fun.

Trolling motor was my priority this year. You need to be able to hover in one area without anchoring.

Ok HT.....let me in on the specifics....You can save me a TON of research time. I have a 17 ft flatbottom john...doesnt have alot of drag, but currently have a bow mount that isn't up to 'par' for the big time current here. What pound thrust,make, model, 24 or 12, cable turn, etc, etc, etc is your bow mount? It would be great to know ahead of time what is needed so I dont OVER buy or worse, UNDER buy. Let me know...I would GREATLY appreciate it.....Thanks in advance.

Buy as much thrust as you can afford. I have an 82lb thrust Motorguide. I wouldn't recommend anything less than that 74lb thrust MinnKota. That way if you get hung up, you can just go upstream and get it. They are both 24v systems. I have yet to drain it on a full day of fishing.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
