Hey, ladies, Any ice fishing reports?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested to hear what the other gals out there have been doing on the new ice.

I've been out quite a few times and had some pretty good luck. (Although, I must say the biggest fish so far for me has been a big old eelpout. )

I've done all of my ice fishing in Isle Bay and Twin Bay on the SE corner of Mille Lacs. Both locations have produced keeper walleye and some nice perch. My son's friend caught a nice Northern Pike last Sunday.

The best luck was this past Wednesday with Rick, (see pic on home page) we got 3 walleyes! The angel-eye jig seems to get the most action. We got our fish from 4 to 8 p.m., but there were others out there that caught up to 13 walleyes during the day.

Good fishing!

I have caught some 11-13" Crappies, evening bite! Your are right it is hard to find the right gear to go ice fishing for a girl. I have my Man drill the holes, then I take over. Fishing through the ice what a riot!

Wow, nice crappies! How deep were you fishing? Were you in a bay or on the big lake?

I agree, Ice fishing is a blast! I enjoy watching the fish swim by in shallow water. Especially when the baitfish head for the hills! That's when you know there's something bigger coming through!

As far as "equal opportunity" is concerned, hey, fair is fair! I'm guessing that many of you guys are much more willing to pitch in and auger a few holes than to help iron the clothes or go grocery shopping! (am I wrong??)

It's all about give and take. (Now if the lady catches more fish, well that's another story!)

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
