I went out from Springsteel fishing yesterday afternoon and there was about 14 inches of clear ice where I drilled, next time I will bring a power auger too!

Hey Frisky,

According to the radio report, you are suppose to be in a hut with two heaters burning right now...???? So are there any fish left in Muskeg?

Hitting the ice tomorrow for a 5 day stretch... Looking forward to it.

Well WT that was the plan, till I went out to start the wifes car for her this morning, stucked thermostat. On top of this my bud from Swift with whom I was to meet there had 2 dead vehicles this morning as well, so even had I made it there we would'nt have made it much further. We were gonna hit Zipple by noon....Oh well.

Yes there are still plenty of fish left in Muskeg. I had the portable set up by three in 16.5 fow. Got 1 big Perch and 1 little Perch by 4.Between 4 and 445 I caught 2 small Wally's, 1 17 inch Wally and another around 21-22. After this the Pout moved in and after 5 of these in about 25 minutes I gave up! So I got to keep 1 nice Perch and 1 nice eating sized Walleye, had them for lunch today.

I'm off to the in-laws in GFKS tomorrow, then Saturday I'll be here in Roseau with my folks. Sunday moving Walleyejons Big fish house onto the pond most likely.

I talked to some folks today that have plans to hit them rocks on Sunday. You gonna beat them to it are'nt you?

Green with envy!....fiskyknut

Yep, that's the plan anyway... It's going to be a brisk morning tomorrow, but the weather sounds like it will get better through the weekend.

Have a good one.

Offline till 12/29.

WT.

      When trolling the raps on a 3 way rig how fast are you going generally if you don’t mind me asking

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀
