  1. whats the biggest fish you have caught ice fishing

    My biggest is an 8lb 6 ounce 31 inch northern on a tip up and smelt on Big Lake. My other best through the ice is a 15 inch crappie.
  2. I didnt hear any shots saturday up by the shack i hunt at up near cook, although i was only out for a couple hours due to the cold. Sunday i only heard 2-3 shots and none that were very close to me. This week ive been hunting a stand on my land near cloquet every evening and heard a couple shots on monday but none since then. Those deer are just too smart for us nowadays
  3. High School Ice Fishing Club

    Crappieman, Im a senior at Esko high school, a ways north of the cities, but we also have an ice fishing club at our high school. We started up this club last year although ours isnt as formal as yours, more of just a group of friends who fish and hunt all the time and we get our picture in the yearbook and stuff but thats pretty much it. We call it the Sportsmens team just to include hunting in there too. I could possibly get some guys to make an official ice fishing team and maybe meet up for a contest sometime. How did you guys get those sponsors? Do they actually give you guys gear and stuff? i would be interested in getting something like that started in my school
  4. Minnesota Lake Trout

    I would check out Burntside or Sag. Or how about Snowbank.
  5. Smelt??

    I use smelt on quickstrike rigs under tip ups through the ice and the pike hammer those alot. Maybe a quickstrike rig under a bobber or something would work
  6. New to walleyes

    That is a very broad question and what works best as far as depths and presentation will also vary by what lake/river you plan on fishing.
  7. Muskie Lures?

    Thanks for the input guys. At this point im just trying to find a good deal on some starter gear that i can afford.
  8. Muskie Lures?

    Im just getting started in muskie fishing and was just wondering what lures people would recommend me to get besides a double cowgirl ive heard that one enough lol? I bought a poes giant jackpot in firetiger color but thats the only lure i have so far

    Wow. I almost had to get the auger out to fish up here in carlton/southern st louis county. Didnt even get a bite today with ice still on most streams around here.

  15. State tournament playoffs

The Pioneers played as team and didn't have any real stars to speak of!!!!!!!Awesome! I agree both Warroad who recruits more than anybody and STA should move up to the main show! Its not that hard to put together a team that can beat those other teams when you get to hand pick your players. Theres no way Warroad and Roseau recruit as much as hill and those other rich private schools. Those kids just play hockey from the time they are born and eat and breathe it. Roseau and Warroad actually develop their players through their great youth programs and such they dont just go steal them from other schools when they are already developed. Its nice to see the northern schools still winning the tournament sometimes and it wouldve been nice to see Roseau win it again. Oh well maybe next year. I think they should also get Anoka and Elk River out of section 7, that should be a northern section although it wont matter anyway, between cloquet duluth east and grand rapids they should be able to keep those two out of the state tournament for awhile.
