  1. Non-refrigerated bait?

    rippin lips leakin livers work as good as stink bait with out the mess
  2. Sheephead/ drum after iceout?

    A crawler on the bottom will get you plenty in a river right after ice out. Look for warm water and baitfish. A creek inlet will have both
  3. BB & full choke

    all depends on the gun and the choke.
  4. MN River Cats...what's going on?

    I think the super high water is the main culprit. Tracking studies have shown that the fish will move a long ways downstream for winter. Flats are not a fast water fish, and probably never moved back up in the spring. After the spawn fish set up a home range wherever they happen to be till fall. Makes sense that p2 has seen an increase in fish the past two years.
  5. jet drive outboard --experiences??

    I run a 2007 1960 roughneck flat bottom with a 115/80. No need to remove the center keel. You shouldn't need a jack plate if you raise the transom up 7". Try to get the biggest motor you legally can. My boat is rated for up to a 105 hp (150/105) and wish I would have went with that set up instead of 115/80.

  8. How long will my bullheads last??

    Mine always last until they die I can keep fish all summer in my stock tank with enough oxygen and clean water.
  9. 2012 Sturgeon Excursion

    I will be up there, probably mid-week though.
  10. too big of heater??

    I have a 35k btu in my 16' house and love it. I use less gas than most guys I know with heaters half that size and my house is always warm
  11. jason mitchell reels

    I got 3 JM reels for free last season and none of them made it through the winter. handle broke on one, and the drag quit on the other two. Very surprised to see the JM name on such junky reels.
  12. Speed Trolling yet?

    I was running 3.5-4 mph on monday. anything slower and I couldn't buy a bite
  13. Trying a new idea/rig...
