My go to knife for hand filleting has always been the Wustof fillet knife. Scalpel sharp, great precision and, believe it or not, I've never had to sharpen it. Never lost its edge. I bought it for my dad for Christmas probably 15 or 20 years ago. I really only use it for filleting northern pike Y bones. Works great. I've tried a lot of other blades and keep going back to the Wustof. Not cheap but well worth it.

Well, after talking with Reed's and Marine General, we got the Resort for under $400 at Joe's. And that was with the LED lighting. WAY too good of a deal to pass up. Joe's should be commended for their willingness to bargain and their customer service. Like I posted earlier, another very successful ice show. Looking forward to trying out our new equipment.

We picked up a new Otter XTH Resort with LED lighting and a pair of Ultimate Backpacks from Joes Sporting Goods and a Striker Ice fleece for my wife. Freebies were Otter Outdoors sweatshirts, long sleeve t-shirts, neck gaiters and a couple lures. Might even have the wife talked into a permanent ice house for next year. Another very successful ice show.

I learned this trick from my father years ago. Once you hook up all the wiring with the lights, take the time to put a ground wire from each light to the trailer frame, another one from the tongue to the frame if it is a tilt bed and then attach the ground to the tongue from the wiring harness. Unless there is something seriously wrong with the wiring or lights themselves, they should work.

Possible fish kill in Spring Lake

Just heard a rumor today from one of my colleagues that supposedly, there has been a major fish kill in Spring Lake that has resulted in tons of the crappies being killed due to the extreme warm weather followed by the cold front and rain. Does anyone know if this is true or not? Was planning on trying Spring this weekend but if that rumor is true, that's not happening.

Just looking for more info.

None that I know of. I checked with nine different bait shops this past weekend and everyone is out except for fatheads and crappie minnows. Prior Lake Bait and Tackle had gotten a shipment in last Friday and they were sold out in two hours. They also informed me that they are supplied by Ken's Bait Service and he is done for the season on sucker minnows and shiners.

My buddy and I stopped at four different bait shops in the south metro on Sat. Everyone was out of shiners, med. suckers and large suckers. Had to settle for fatheads. Still got one week to go to catch game fish and no bait. I would agree with the hot dogs comment. Good luck to everyone.

Well, another spearing season for me has come and gone. Unlike last year, the sturgeon eluded both my buddy and I. We were set up in 14 FOW and could barely see bottom. We did manage to see two sturgeon on the camera that was on the bottom. As Mother Nature would have it, the water clarity on Sat. and Sun. went from bad to worse. At one point we could barely see down 8 feet. Probably the reason why everyone around us was moving into shallower water. Most of the sturgeon speared were down by Oshkosh at the mouth of the Wolf River and on Lake Poygan. Apparently, you could see bottom in 9 FOW. Less than 250 fish speared lake wide. It was a slow opener to say the least. The season will definitely run for the entire 16 days if the clarity stays that bad. Oh well. Looking forward to some ice fishing now.
