LOL I admit I been thinking along those lines too. I have to be carefull what I share on here if I want to have any interaction with others. I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking about drilling some holes in the ice lol.

Right with you guys! I to have to watch what I say in the summer, I have buddy's that tell me I can't talk about ice fishing until after deer season. I still haven't taken the cover off the boat this season and I'm already drawing blue prints of a new fish house I would like to build.

Agreed. I am not a heat person at all. After last winter here in southwestern minnesota I thought I was living in the banana belt not the ice belt. I always tell people that this is the furthest south i will ever live. It is long over due to see the temps back down in the 20's and below. Bring on the cold i am tired of feeling sweat in my beard and time to start feeling ice in it instead.

Yup 40 below for a week would be nice . I went out and stood the Nils up and gave her a hug just last week and funny somebody mentioned to charge the batteries . I put mine on just yesterday but poor things didn't need much . LOL . I even have a ice rod right beside my bed . Get to use it lots cause the dam dog keeps throwing his ball under the bed . Rod makes the the perfect retriever when I can't reach . LOL .

I'm going Soft Wall this Year!!! I picked up a Clam 5600 & a Clam 6800; with the Trap-Link Doors and an Adapter. My fishing Buddy of 40 years is picking up a 6800 this afternoon. One has 4-holes with a 5x6 floor, the other has 6-holes and a 6x8 floor. Too Cool!!!full-39914-35244-c.jpg

Nice and good luck to you too when you go. You will have to let us know how it goes. I am scouting little local lakes around here and talking about the this winter season. With the lows in the mid 40's coming up it is going to be hard on me knowing that the ice is still a few months out from forming

We're going to start at Winnie, and then a couple days & Red, then back to Winnie. We're going to try Cutfoot Sioux for Crappies. I could use assistance for Blue Gils and Crappies, as where to go. I think trying some small lakes may be the way to go.

I am hoping we have an early ice,...

Hey Rikkus here we are at the beginning of what is going to be another steller year on the ice 2018. And this year has me looking for a Trap-Link connector for my Clam Yukon and 5600. In your feed you stated that you and a buddy had aquired a couple a few years back. If you still have one Or an extra I am willing to pay Handsome for it...let me know...Catch Your Limit!

    • 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.    
    • Thanks guys I will look into them.
    • No but he knows how to PM me next time! 😉
