Good for you. Make sure you where some ice pics and a life jacket. At least that's what I would do this early. No fish is worth your life so have fun and be careful. Let us know how you do.

Give us the GPS coordinates of where you're going so we know where to find the spot where you fall through. Just kidding, I'm jealous.

went to my local bait shop today and they said a few guys were going ice fishing today over here. Some back bays of a big resevoir are frozen enough to walk on. NUTS in my opinion. maybe next weekend i will go

I am not ready to put the boat away yet, but it looks like I better get the ice fishing stuff ready. It may be more useful than the boat in another week.

We got plenty of ice on a few lakes/sloughs SW of Fargo. I'll be hitting the ice early tommorow morning. Found there to be 4-5 inches (judging by the crack). Hopefully will set up some tipups for pike, and slay some slab bluegills.

Well, I was the first onto a little slough in south central MN. Marked a few fish, but didn't get any takers. Sure was good to be using the flasher, auger, stubby rods, and the whole 9 yards! Next time the fish will bite and I'll have the whole system down.

Easily 3 inches, probably even more than that in spots and they'll be more by tomorrow.

I went back out yesturday and today, and I had lots of lookers but no takers I thinks crappie minnows are the ticket for the perch and not the waxies. Also going to try some tipups for northerns

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though.
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
