I have used white bear taxidermy. They do a good job and are close to you. I usually only do replicas now from artistic angler and the fish continue to swim. Nice slab

I have been using ripping raps and slab tabs when hole hopping during the day off the structure to trigger reaction bites during prime time.. vmc tingler spoon minnow head and plain hook with a sucker minnow on my tip down...I like to keep my bait more in one area and let it just wiggle so I put two large split shots only six inches above the hook....It's been pretty solid combo this year

That's to bad hopefully he was having a bad day but I guess if it was me I would be spending my hard earned money elsewhere.

I have had both great units. Stuck with the K drill. Why? I can get a extension for it the Nils has the round disk on it. Prevents from going through deeper ice. However both are great? Just my 2 thoughts. I thought the K drill was a little faster.


Just buy a strikemaster extension half the price.

They seem to be around just about every flat or at least the ones I have been fishing....You can tell right away when a nice mark comes in chase fast and high and just stop and then you have 2 or three marks. I haven't caught as many as I have seen but I have been using some pretty big baits....But they will stay around on your graph as long as you keep entertaining down there.

Maybe they feed strong in the morning or later at night. Most lakes the sun down is what it's all about but I know a couple of lakes that people struggle getting g eyes and I have been out in middle of night and they are putting feed bag on....Like others have said down size or do the opposite and get a ripping rap or other aggressive baits and try and trigger a reaction strike instead of a feeding strike.

Nice job Oldstar The guy just caught a few nice Perch and kept them in compliance with state regs. I get so tired of Holier than Thou people on here that feel like they have to save our fishing in the state. Here is a thought. Oldstar will keep a legal limit of fish to eat, you release all of yours and then it will be like he only kept half a limit. Would that help?

I wasn't trying to be holier than the next guy. Reading my statement back I can understand where you thought that. I guess my point was that back in the day when the slot was a hundred and people were catching their "limit" it did not help the perch population on mille lacs and any other lake for that matter. Seems like the perch population is down amongst a lot of so called great perch lakes. 100 just seemed ridiculous to me for any species. I agree with oldstar that the way the lake has been managed it will be hard for the perch to rebound with all the big predator fish in the lake. But their is a sediment I think that alot of people feel like they always need to take a limit. I am not saying oldstar is one of them. I have friends that are that way when I tell them I went fishing and they ask me if I limited out. It seems to a lot of people that is their main focus or concern when going fishing. Once again not saying this is true for oldstar. They are usually my friends that keep big sunfish and crappies because they can brag about how they kept these big fish. I meant that maybe we a "fisherman" can do are part once and while because if we leave it all up to the DNR we will be in big trouble.

Now back to original thread now that I hijacked it. Nice fish. Those crazy bees sure do seem more abundant this winter as each time out I have caught some or seen some on the graph and don't recall doing this the last several winters. Don't recall that many floaters from this past summer either. Tight lines boys.
