Made it out on Little Green (Chisago)on Sunday for a little early tip up fishing. Ice was thin and just fished the shallow weedline. Had one flag that bit me off. Ice was just a little to thin to venture out to my eye spot.
I'm a returning member here, but I risked it last weekend out on a pond outside of Moorhead, mn. Well it paid off and my brother pulled in a 20" walleye and a gal pulled in a 1lb walleye last night on the same pond. Using a jigging spoon tipped with a minnow head. I can't say where (sworn to secrecy)
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
