    On Ice
  1. Ice was getting pretty soft yesterday and the wind is blowing today. There was around 12-15 inches where I was yesterday and the top half of that wasn't very solid. I would guess a couple of weeks would be a reasonable time for ice out based on what I saw yesterday.
  2. Snowmobile Trailer

    Should've bought a Triton.
  3. I haven't been down to the IGL for a few weeks but I would say we aren't too far behind normal. At this point I wouldn't expect to ice fishing into April but I wouldn't say it would totally open by then either.
  4. i drove out yesterday but the days of doing that are coming to an end most are using quads or walking. the ice was pretty soft but still plenty of it. should have fishable ice for another 10 days pretty easy unless we get more consistent warm weather and wind.
  5. Bog or Muck rubber boots

    there is a thread about muck boots going in the ice fishing forum u might want to take a look there for opinions about the arctic pros there.
  6. Rubber/Muck boots for ice fishing

    I bought a pair of arctic pros late in the season last year and so far i'm pretty happy with them. I'm used to wearing heavier rubber boots and they seem lighter than the Cabela's rubber boots I've have been wearing. I'm getting them broke in better every trip and liking them even more.
  7. I managed to keep 15 crappies and 10 gills on west last Saturday but only had 4 crappies until 4pm and it really picked up after that. I only fished until I couldn't see the fish anymore but they were still biting when I packed up around 5:30.
  8. truck tires

    I put a set of Hankook Dynapro ATMs on my '00 Silverado in November of 2012 and have no complaints so far. Its not a daily driver but I put close to 10k miles on last year and they seem to wear quite well.
  9. Aqua Vu Micro "Minnesota Rig"

    that's a fishing rod? might as well tie it to a 2x4. but yes basically the same idea.
  10. Ice Report Needed

    there is very limited fishable ice. at this point at least to me its not worth the trip. I was down there yesterday and its very slow at best. The ice will need to be some snow cover or at least thicker ice for me to go back. The water and ice is too clear and the fish are extremely spooky right now.
  11. Ice 5 inches thick in SWMN I heard

    I checked Okabena, Fulda, and East Graham Sunday. all had 3 plus inches. Okabena had close to five then and i'm sure there's more now.
  12. Thinkin... Well hoping!

    I'm planning on hitting a couple lakes tomorrow should be enough to walk on as long as the wind doesn't blow too hard it should be a good day.
  13. K-Drill Ice Auger

    Almost any higher end big name 18v or higher drill would work as long as you put it in low gear.
  14. Old berkley ice rods?

    after sorting through my rod rack it looks like i only have one 18" UL left. it has sentimental value but doesn't see any action anymore. What's it worth?
  15. Old berkley ice rods?

    I know I have a few yet
