Here are a couple late Feb. ice bass, fishing panfish with 2lb test, fun times. Just came across these pix and had to post, starting to get excited again. Both from same metro lake, two days apart.

Nice bass! Some nice bass swimming in the Metro Lakes. Early and late ice can be phenomenal fishing for them!

Good Fishin,

Wow, nice doggy thru the ice!!! I'm impressed with the size and number of bass caught ice fishing especially since everyone knows they don't bite under the ice!!! Do any of you target bass in the winter or mostly catch them by accident? I know of a few lakes that I can catch bass in the winter on a somewhat consistent basis but other lakes seem void of bass during the winter.

I guess I never target bass ice fishing, catch all of them by accident. There is one lake where we catch bass every single time we go panfishing, I'm not sure why that is because I fish other lakes that have good bass populations and very rarely catch bass. There's got to be something behind it. It's kinda neat watching the Vex, you know it's a bass, a thick red line comes slowly from the bottom, I would have to just hold the jig in place for a few seconds, and just lift up and many times they would be there. Sometimes they would have no interest and sink back to the bottom, you could come back a few minutes later and coax them off again. Kinda fun.

I'll target bass on occasion, especially on Cheqaumegon Bay, excellent smallie fishing. Sometimes in the winter the bass will school up and you can get some pretty fast and consistent action, this is mostly during early and late ice.

Good Fishin,

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
