Thanks insuranceguy! Yep I posted a report in the CNY Tim and Kyle thread. It was a beautifuld day on the ice with Amanda, she caught some pretty decent gills today too on the white and brown Maki's... wink.gif Usually you get pestered on that lake with small to med, sized gills but we did catch a few quality gills as well and fishingking caught a slime dart which later ate my Timanti confused.gif Here's the pics...

Amanda's first fish caught this morning...

Timmy, Amanda, and Gang - Nice report. A few of those gills look much nicer than the average outta there...

Dad and I hit a diff spot this morning and things worked out ok. Ice was iffy, two layers. About 2 inches of ice then an inch of slush then another inch and a half of ice. We didnt make it to the location we wanted but poked around and found some fish. Ended up with 15 nice crappies 10 to 12 3/4 inches, kept a few perch, Guess who got one almost 13 inches, caught a half dozen gills, a half dozen small eyes, and think we iced 9 decent smallies. Wasn't fast and furious but certainly nice...

This warm-up, rain, and refreeze will actually help most lakes...

Thought he had another smallie...

Here I am Timmie!! Gees with all the bright outfits out there it will be a tough choice between colors of lures and color of outfits! Do I match Timmie and Tank or Steve and Todd . . .I think the early and late season will be the red Artic suit so if I go through, I'll float, well supposed to float.

Dad, Meg, and I went up the neighbors pond for an hour today to check the ice and stretch some line. Didnt mark many but picked up 7-8 bass and a couple nice gills, all released. Ice was 4 inches of white ice and slick...

I've never met CNY Frank but he takes some abuse and it all seems good grin.gif That's great your neighbor has a pond with some fish in it Dark Cloud and that's a real good doggie pic to wrap it up. She looks a lot like one of our dogs that has some Collie and a few other breeds in him. grin.gif Hope to maybe meet you guys out on the ice and fish with Timmy again one Saturday this winter somewhere between there and here! I made some great venison sausage off my buck to grill up on the ice this year.

Dad and I spent the day on Long Pond. Had to keep moving and each hole was good for one to a couple of fish(we cut well over 50 holes). Mostly small/medium gills, small perch with a few nice ones, caught 3 diff year classes of crappies, and some nice largemouth. The last hour of the day you didnt have to move...

again hear say i was on the south end Wednesday for 1.5 hours fished from 28 fow to 4 fow and only marked 2 fished I measured 3.75" in every hole I drilled. It was a little spongy and there was a nice hole 50 ft out from shore in 3-4 fow where someone went through one Saturday all i gotta say is tread lightly Hopefully next weekend the lake will be safe enough for solo trips smile.gif

I finally got out on a solo mission for the first trip of the season late this afternoon and was lucky to find some good ice. I also was fortunate enough to find the motherload of slabs within the first 10 minutes grin.gif The FL-18 was lit up like a Christmas tree ooo.gif Got on the ice at 2 and was off by 4 and home by dark with a limit of some very healthy crappies. Smallest ones were 10" even up to 12"! Enjoying a few beers and some fresh crappie for dinner tonight!!!!!

Heading out with salmonspanker tomorrow afternoon to a different spot to get a few more crappies and maybe a walleye or two!

    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • 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. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
