I know everyone is sick the extension question...but I'm coming up next Wednesday and I'm gonna pick up an extension for my Strikemaster tonight. Just curious if the 12" will be enough or should I just get the 18" right away? Will maybe be fishing around/near some heaves and rough ice.. any opinions?? thanks!! I cant wait to get back up there!

Well... I have a 12" Extension on my Strikemaster and I have yet to bottom out on URL or LOW in my last 10 years of ice fishing. The first half of those years was a Jiffy Model 30 with a 12" Extension.

I have come close w/ an extension but that is over 4' of ice! blush.gif

Go to the store sales forum and you can find the post there.

It was at the Strikemaster store in Big Lake.

Few years back fishing the heaves this time of year and we had the 12 and 18 on. Bring it all. I've never once thought to myself "I wish I hadn't brought those extensions along"

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      None that I am aware of...Maybe in 10-14 days....
