Best Fish this Winter

Recommended Posts

Last weekend I caught a 2 lb. 15 in. perch. Not just my biggest this year but biggest perch ever. I almost fell off the bucket when she came through the ice.

Pike, 38 inches on a tip-up early ice on Birch Lake near Babbitt. Biggest toothy so far. Caught and released.

Prettiest fish was a 6 lb laker off Gunflint Lake last month on laker opener. Fat and healthy, with a deep bronze color I hadn't seen before. Caught but NOT released. grin.gif

Hey Ryan I suppose you get a good late ice bite up that way too. Does the river get bad ice way soon up there and what is kinda typical for a not safe to walk out date?

Always a guess, but I'm curious about the late ice opportunities up there. When does the season close?

Regards....fiskyknut

I have caught a few Walleye around 24-26 inches, I'm slackin this year bad. Perch to near 15"s. The Pike bite is yet to come.

you can fish the river right until the season closes at the last day of march..season re-opens second week in may i believe..fishing can be really hot in mid march when a little extre flow starts happing under the ice.

If by catching you mean pulling out of the hole than I "caught" a beauty 47" musky on January 3rd in Ontario. Didn't even need a rod. Signed the Musky Master

Well I have nothing up to the sizes you are talking about but managed to land my first walleye/sauger through the ice this winter thanks to some of the guys on the Forum.

Most memorable would be meeting up with a couple of new fishing buddies and sharing the bite.

Has to be Jason Van Ert's 48 inch muskie thru the ice hands down. Nothing like seeing a 4 foot long fish come out of a hole in the ice.

    • 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. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?
