  1. The only open water I have seen on Poinsett is under the bridges. Maybe a total of a football field area of open water and thats it.
  2. Fished Sinai on Friday night with a buddy and his GF. Set up on the drop off to the left of the boat ramp in anywhere from 18 to 24FOW. The ice was still perfect, and boy was it a pain drilling 12 holes through ~30" of ice with a hand auger. We ended up with 7 eyes and missed 2 or 3 more. All fish came on tipups set up on the deeper side. The trick seemed to be to put 2 minnows on the same hook.
  3. The stocked trout pond south of Hyvee has been doing pretty darn well for me. Trout are biting at just about any depth with crappies being taken in the deeper water on the west side of the fishing dock. I have no other personal reports but have heard good things about 81 and thompson right now.
  4. I would also suggest fishing the state park side on thompson. get into some nice pike and walleye as well.

    hard side or soft side tackle box?

    I've been fishing the cabelas backpack tacklebox for years and I absolutly love it. 4 trays go in the bottom and you can get another 1 or 2 in the top if you need to.

    AIS sticker location

    When I pick mine up, it will go on the lid of my dry storage.
  7. A couple buddies and I were out at Thompson last night in the state park and we left a few rods behind. I know they were picked up because they were not there when we drove back and looked for them. One was an abu garcia with the tip broken off and the top guide was missing the eyelette. This one had a thill lighted bobber on it with an orange hook. The other rod had a pinnicale reel on it I believe with black fireline and it was not rigged. Please let me know if you picked these up or if you know who did. I'm pretty sure they are students at SDSU.
  8. I have a feeling im done with hard water for the year. This rain today is going to chew up a lot of ice very fast.
  9. If you want to hit it this weekend,send me a PM and I'll show you where we were fishing.
  10. I was also out on Sinai tonight. We fished off to the left of the boat launch. We only had 9" of ice...down from about 14" last week. However the fishing was fantastic.

    New flasher/camera battery prices?

    I know that my flasher (marcum vx1) came with the 9ah battery and I replaced it this season with the 7ah...they have the same length and with dimensions, not sure about the height.
  12. Rundrave, if you head out, let me know and I'm sure I have a few guys that wouldnt mind heading up that way and meeting up with you if you dont mind a bit of company.
  13. Hopefull this spring I will be able to get out for my first waterfowl hunt ever. The CA on my dorm floor says they fly though here like crazy...
