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.

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,

    • You can turn an old refrigerator into a pellet smoker....      
    • I bought a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40" last winter and ended up giving it to a friend of mine to have at his cabin. They are fine, don't get me wrong but I just wasn't happy with the ribs I made in there as opposed to a charcoal smoker. It is ironic that Leech made the comment about a vertical pellet smoker needing to be refilled often because that is one of the things I didn't like about my MES. Maybe Leech's Char Broil has a bigger wood chip hopper but the MES had to be filled about every 20 minutes to keep smoke rolling.   I'm not against electric smokers and if that is what I had started out on I would probably still be using it but I found that instead of having a minimum of 3 pieces of grilling equipment to store and maintain, I can do everything I need to do with just a pellet grill and still have the ease of set it and forget it like an electric smoker. If I needed a very large cooking space I wouldn't hesitate to pick up one of those Pit Boss verticals even if I ended up changing out the controller for something with better temp control.
    • A local company here, AEM mapping, has completed mapping the lower basin of lake winnipeg, from winnipeg beach across to the east side, and down to the mouth of the red river. The lower red river from Lockport to the mouth has also been mapped. The structure they found, and the detail is astounding and will be a game changer, especially for folks coming up and have a limited amount of time to fish.  The red is available through hummingbird right now, the AEM maps chips of the red and lake winnipeg are compatable with lowrance units only. A full list of compatable units can be found on their site.  Chips will be available mid December, pricing will be announced shortly.
    • I have had a few electric smokers but if I ever change that up I will definitely go to a pellet smoker. I have had my mind set on making one from an old refrigerator but these bigger pit boss models might just be the ticket.    
    • and lets not overlook the ever present found hound!!!!!!!!
    • Like the rolling cabinet. Looks like a nice storage area for wood chips, scrappers, tin foil and all the other gizmos needed for grilling and smoking. And gets the smoker up so you don't have to bend down to fill it. 🙂
    • My new set up. Got it mid-summer from a friend who hardly used it. So far I have done ribs, loin, crappies, and eggs. And pickles 2 times. excellent on a burger!  
    • 😩😨 i got an electric smoker FREE!!!!!!!!!! i need to get my arse to using it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Ya a couple of stinkers the last two games, one thing that was nice about last year is we finally kicked the large and extended slumps, lets hope to see that again and put some points up. 
    • I bought a Charbroil electric. Really like it. I got the stand for it and put a wheel set on to roll it around. It's got a remote too so you can sit and watch the game inside and still keep an eye on heat, internal meat temp and time and make changes if needed.  I filled the wood chip holder 2 times in the 8hrs the brisket was smoking. 🙂
