Glow red is still producing well for me, the smaller sizes seem to trigger the bites during these cold snaps. I am also having good luck with the super small glow red buckshot or rattle spoons.

A Demon tipped with a minnow is all you need. Glow with a blood line or red dot always works for me.

Is everybody using crappie minnows or are the fatheads. I have been there before where the bigger the minnow the better, leave the crappie minnows in the bucket...

We didn't get any slabs, but I am pretty sure we are to shallow for them. We are sitting at about 11 feet targeting walleyes. Might move out later though to try and get some.

In 13 fow last night a buck shot worked well to rattle the fish in. It seemed when we stopped rattling the fish stopped. The buck shot didn't catch much, but it sure kept the fish comng in. Pnk and green were the colors that were working well.

rattle buck shots were working well for a group of us last weekend. It seemed that anything big on the end of your line brought the fish in and then it was a little more work to get them to bite. Chubby's, Jiggin Raps, and large jig spoons. Managed 6 slabs last saturday and know i remember why we fish red, WOW.

Red buckshots along with green or red glow jigs on a straight line also worked well for us!

Red Glow Rattling Varmints in 1/16oz. Move to 1/8oz for the eyes. Tough to beat a glow gami in a small size with a small crappie minnow as well for a stealth approach. Load it up with weight and use the biggest ice-bustr bobber they make. Speed is of the essence when trying to harass a school of URL crappies. Get them while they're under you, or you miss your window.

Tip ups seemed to be working really well for the walleye this weekend. Jigging was very weak. Large shiner or sucker minnow on a tip up 1 1/2 foot off bottom produced the most success. We fishied only in the afternoon, and the bite was very good at dusk off the South Shore.

I had my best luck on a glow/red gemini spoon and a glow red hook under a ice buster. Most came jigging but the bigger fish hit the bobber rod. Once it got cold we had to slow down and go smaller. 1st day they were pounding bigger glow pink buckshots but as it got colder we were down to glow ratfinkies and waxies.

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
