That is a great video, Feathers. I was just thinking of that one when I was reading this thread.

I have successfully targeted smallmouth through the ice on two different lakes (not Mille Lacs) in the last couple of years, and hope to do more this year. They are very finicky and seem to be very particular on their locations. On the two lakes that I've had success on, they were on deep rocks. I too would love to get into them on ML, but I have never heard of a single instance of someone catching one there through the ice, which is odd.

D-Rock Ice Center in New Brighton (NE MPLS) can fix the pitch for you. I took a lazer there once and they had a jig that has the perfect pitch. The unit that I brought in was not that far off from the common eye, but that pitch is critical. It's harder than you think. They fixed it in 15 minutes while I waited. If you're in the cities, I'd try them.

Since your location says you're up on the range, you could maybe try the Red Rock Wilderness Store in Ely. I have no idea if they do blade pitch corrections, but they sharpen all other blades (except for Nils) so they may do it. May be worth a call.

Yes, you are allowed to fish lakes inside the reservation, just Leech Lake reservation. Red Lake is the only closed reservation in MN.

Its not as dark and pretty as yours, and I could have added some more chips, but I don't care for overly smokey flavor and it turned out very tastey.

I knew it smelled good, looked good, and have confirmed that it tastes even better!

I preheated my electric smoker to 225 and when I checked it at about 3 hours the internal temp in the two loins were 168 and 170. They look good, smell good, and are now resting in the fridge, waiting to be sliced tomorrow. Very tempting to try some, but I'll have to wait. Thanks for your site Reinhard. I've used your instructions on ribs and pulled pork as well.

I've got a couple of pork loins in the brine and going to smoke them this weekend. Approximately how long does it take to smoke them to 150 degrees (using electric smoker), per the instructions on your webpage, Reinhard?

Nice looking rig. I'm not interested in buying it (already have an ATV) but I am interested in how you fabricated the rack you have for the shelter? Any chance you could take some up-close pictures of that, please?

I picked up a variety pack of piggy-back type connectors at Fleet Farm in the auto section for a couple of bucks. Included in there were the ones that Orandausa posted, and a couple other that have two male ends and one female end, which work well.

Yes, Bassmasters release all of their fish, and they're very successful. I can't find the total numbers from Mille Lacs last year, but just a month ago the college championship was on Lake Bemidji and in the 3 days of fishing 455 bass were brought in, and 451 were released alive. Back in 2013 at the Bassmaster Classic in Oklahoma, every single fish that was weighed in was released alive, but water temps were between 39-45 degrees.
