Who is that character? smile.gif

It was a fun day Darren and you guys are right about the thin ice, this area can be open water for most of the winter unless it gets really cold. The week before, it was about 2-4" in that spot with lots of variation in thickness.

I hear ya, but I'm not sure I could even find it again if I tried grin.gif

I was sitting on a flatbead trailer facing backwards and curled up like a Husky at bedtime. When the ride was over, I had no clue where we were.

Not only that but it's a real safety issue with that ice there, I'm glad I had a good guide.

Yeah, that area is definitely not an area to underestimate or mess around in. Last year I was fishing near there and was picking up eagle feathers next to my fish house. That usually indicates open water, right? I also found a spot near the meth hole earlier this year where the ice varied from 4-12 inches within ten feet. crazy.gif

Thanks for sharing...I know you said you were using cutbait.....and deadsticking...but would you mind how you go about locating and catching cats through the ice? I live near a lake that is full of channels and no one targets them in the winter...i'd like to try with a little advice!

    • 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.
