Crappies are still snapping really good. But what's new when you are fishing in a hatchery. 30-36 feet of water. Look off points and islands...Quite a bit of ice too. I cannot wait to get up there again!

I personally have never fished Hay...I like to fish where no one else fishes, spots that no one would think about catching crappies/walleyes at. We have been fairly successful this year and avg size is better, but still alot of smaller fish. We have gotten our limit of mostly 11.5-12 inch crappies with a few smaller ones mixed in that won't go back down the hole.

Talked to my dad and he said there is alot of ice up there now...almost extension time!!

We had a great weekend. Great time and great accomodations at Muskie Bay Resort. Nice to meet up with some friends, and also take my boy along. We found the crappies suspended over 38' of water. They cooperated enough for us to bring some home for a meal, but it wasn't fast and furious. Cold and windy. Sunday morning we tried for lakers on Crow. Iced at least one, maybe more, I had one hit in the two hours I fished them and got a little excited and missed. That's the way it goes. I think the crew I was with was going to try a new crappie spot...waiting to hear how that went. Lots of ice. We drove pickups everywhere.

    • 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.
