What's everyone got planned for this winter. 

I'll start. These are all weekend trips except for Winnie are and Idaho.

Early ice mid to late December I'll be on Upper Red chasing walleye.

Then home waters for awhile.

Then around second week of January I'll be up around Winnibigoshish area chasing perch and crappie. 

Then home waters for a bit. 

Then late January to early to February I'll be out to Mille Lacs for walleye. 

Then home waters again for a while. 

March is off to Idaho on Cascade chasing tank perch. Then it's a stop on Lake of the Woods for big pike to cap off the season for the most part. 

At least that's the schedule as of today October 19. Things change but that's the plan. I did a similar schedule last year, with a few spur of the moment trips sprinkled in.

Talked to guy from salt lake this week that drives up to cascade every year, more people ice fish than just Minnesota and Wisconsin, 29 hour drive won’t save it

While this is true. It’s not nearly as bad as it gets In Wisconsin, Minnesota or the Dakotas. It also doesn’t have the tourist industry that some areas have for built around it. 

I agree though that eventually it will see an adverse effect of all the added pressure. Just not as fast as some places around here.

I knew that about Junkie4ice because of some old PMs. They have both names.

I am gonna spend some time in NE South Dakota. It's a lot closer for me, only 4 hours. I spent a week up there this fall fishing and had a fantastic time. Maybe Lacrosse. Fishing can be good, just love the area.

Junkie,

  You wouldn't happen to be the legend formerly known as Kvan, would you?

Jealous of that Cascade trip - hoping to get out there before the rush is over! Have any room for one more?? :) 

Hayward as soon as I get word of safe ice, got into some 14-16" crappies late season last year on a new lake, been waiting all summer to get on it early ice!

First week end of December I'm doing a weekend in Northern MN sleeping in my hub. Thinking of hitting upper red for a night and bemidji area for some crappies the second and third night.

Always get to Green Bay for whitefish around Christmas time if the ice is good enough, otherwise mid February.

Annual guys trip sounds like second weekend in February, possibly the brainerd lakes area but no set lakes yet.

March i'll be in the boundary waters for a late ice crappie trip in the hub shack. Still have a lot of planning to do for that one. 

I plan to spend a lot more time in Washburn and Sawyer county this year, Rusk county has been good to me but it's hard to compete with Sawyer county area!

I'll be spending all my time up in Vilas Co. Got a new trailer for my ATV, so I'll be moving around more.
