Have done several camping /fishing trips on ice, it can be a blast if you are prepared! planning is crucial to to a happy outcome, having the right gear makes all the diffence! cots are a must to keep off the ice, plenty of water for cooking etc. 20lb tanks full plan on more then you think, good slp.bags, pre cooked main meals go a long way when you just warm up versus cook although we have grilled ribs. also depends on if you drive on ice. If you can then not having to haul out gear makes it a lot easier. try and find a lake where you get a day and nite bite to fish. I guess with out being more specific, It is a blast if done right!!!

thanks oil painter, that's some good input. Being obsessed with fishing like i am, summer time i especially like to find rivers, lakes, and ponds to camp next to where i can fish near a comfy camp site and sleep with my pole in the water!

We just set up camp up on LOW before New Years. 2 8x8 tent style portables, 3 4 wheelers, and 2 f/t Yukons. Burned 100 lbs of propane in 2.5 days. Great time. Have done the same thing on Red and (Contact Us Please) also.

Should have mentioned in first post used clam 5600 butted up to a 6800 clamped together. used 5600 to cook and fish out of and two of us slept in 6800. it works well if you are on different schedules, guys I go with are nite owls so they sleep in. I was able to fish out of 56oo while buddy slept. It is great to be snappin fish while they sleep.

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
