Default It's not over just might have to drive a little.

The last two weekends I have put on a few miles for my favorite sport. Ice fishing in MN in the Detroit Lakes area is always a fun times with lakes around every turn in the road. The ice is still solid 15'' inches and with the length of day light plan on fishing for 14 hours if you want the morning and evening bite. With game fish being closed gills and crappies were are target species. All gills over 9'' go back and crappies over 12'' sight fishing in 9 fow with a with white maki plastic worked well for me.

Tall gills! For me, the second pic is what ice fishing is all about.

I wondered what you've been up to from time to time, and figured you are probably still wearing your vehicles out on ice fishing road trips.

Beautiful fish!

This winter I drove 10,499 miles for ice fishing starting in Nov to mid April. Are you still living across the Sir Nick's?
