I normally look to fish LOW around the end of Dec. the ice is thick enough to drive a truck on. Earlier then that I worry about Ice pushing and not getting off the lake. 3 years ago we went out, only to have the ice push, it took the resorts 5hrs to cut through the ice wall that was 7ft tall.

Well nov has come and gone as well pretty much dec. Are deer trip to upper north east missouri on the iowa border was pretty good. I saw 8 deer but not 1 ever gave me a good broad side shot so I got skunked for deer season. My buddy got a nice 9pointer hunting over the river bottoms in the stand I wanted to hunt from.

And then there was ICE the ice gods smiled upon us and we where some of the 1st guys out on several local lake's in upper mn the ladies let us out of the house from 9dec-16dec We fished blackduck 6" ice,uppper red 8" ice, and lake of the woods 12" ice. We landed a couple big pike 4 jumbo perch and nice limits of walleye and sauger on almost every day. To many fish frys to count! You have to love early ice they say its some of the best ice fishing for a reason. Im headed back up to Illinois to go ice fishing almost every other weekend they have close to 4" of ice on almost all of the northern il and southern wi lakes. If anyone from missouri wants some tips on where to go ice fishing in IL send me a msg your only 3-4hours away from some fun on the ice there is nothing like walking on water. good luck to all.

Where do you stay when you go to LOW? I'm thinking about at least one trip up there this winter. Do you stay at a resort or motel?

Just got back from deer camp.....I was able to get a 6point buck not a monster but it will make some nice sausage. After not getting a deer last year I was pretty ancy and took the 1st one I saw. Which was a good thing because I didnt see another deer the rest of the week.

1900le....we go to Riverbend we have all our own gear... but for the LOW trip we take the lazy rout and just use their hut and have them do all the work its a lil more relaxing. Charlie the owner is a real nice guy and hes done us right every time. I know they have some of the cheapest rates thou if you wanted to bring your own gear and stay at one of their cabins. This will be are 4th year 10th trip with them.

I'll check them out. I've got all my own stuff, so that's not an issue. I just need a place to stay, cabin, motel, doesn't matter. Thanks

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.
