I fished from late Friday evening to Saturday evening and it was nothing great. Moved the perm out of shallow water to 30'. Caught some perch and missed some walleyes out of it, but did get one mid-day. Hopped around with the portable behind the truck and the perch fishing was pretty decent. Had two or three at every spot I stopped then I'd have to move to find new fish. It was getting late at the last spot and I was getting perch so decided to just stay put for the change of light and got a 26" eye right before the sun set. What a healthy looking fish, and my biggest through the ice so far. Fished out of Agate Bay, caught most stuff on 1/8oz. kastmaster with small minnow head. Best action in 30ft. Friday night-Saturday morning didn't even mark a fish over the rocks! Not saying they're not getting fish around that depth, just not where we were. Good luck. I'll be up this coming weekend.

Shadrapla, sounds like the time spent on East Flat out of Barnacles a few days ago. We fished three days and brought only two thru the hole. I will say that I did miss several that just took to bait to the bottom and released it without a tooth mark.
Thing just have to pick soon, I hope.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Why when Frank does such a great job?

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
