I fish from a kayak.  So, I pretty much have the whole lake to myself.

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.

Got back from a few hours of fishing.  I had no intention of using what was working.  I wanted to try something different.

The Z-viber 1/16 oz lure...terribl e.  I couldn't get a fish to bite it.  I may need more practice.

My stupid spinner trolling rig was hot cakes.  I've never tried it ice fishing, thought I would try it.

Today is the day to go out ice fishing!!! where?  White Bear, St. Croix, or Forest Lake!  :D

I will be packing my stuff in the truck.  Will be walking out on the ice, since I have no idea how thick ice is now.

How's biting? Ice should be at least 20" now but with the warm weather, it has melted at least 2" and now it's trying to re-freeze again. But like you said.. ice is never safe even if it's 20"+. Just becareful and watch out of water, heaves, and cracks.

Fishing is never guaranteed to catch.  O0  Sometimes, I get to a spot and being all alone, it can be crazy catching fish after fish.  Other times, it's a lonely dead sea.  It's sometimes weather related, high pressure low pressure.  Sometimes, ice fishing is all temperature... too cold and I don't feel like moving much.  Hence I sometimes don't catch much.

I went to a different spot yesterday.  Cold enough and high pressure came through.  Not much to show except for one catfish and one perch.  So I basically froze my hands and got a lot of exercise packing and unpacking gear.  Recovering today.

OMG, we went out this past weekend too and it was frigid cold...brrrrrr .. Imagine drilling holes and trying to find fishes. After 1 hour we gave up and set tents. It was too cold. My fingers and toes froze.. can barely moved them. Had to jump in the car and heat it up. It was super cold. Went to 3 different lakes. One lake, we caught sunnies only but good size (palm size) sunnies. Giant crappies comes at night but they are super smart.
