    Back again...

    -Profile is updated
    -Avatar is updated (20lb Red River of the North Channel Cat)

    ...and ice fishing channels was very slow this weekend. Usually we pound them but ice fishing in general has been very weird this winter. Yes its warm and the ice is half as thick as it should be right now.

    Nice to meet another MN Catfisherman. They seem to be a little scarce in this neck of the woods.

    It is great to hear from another Minnesotan, we are fairly rare here. I have never catfished through the ice, but I would love to give it a shot if I had a chance of success!

    There are other Minnesota based fishing forums that I frequent regularly but I thought it would be fun to get more catfish perspective from across the US.

    I've got this idea in the back of my mind that I need to take a trip to Santee-Cooper or the James River to get a taste of what we don't have here.

    Anyway, I've never been skunked ice fishing channel cats but I came close last Sunday, only 3. My best day on the ice, my partner and I landed 40 in under 3 hours with the biggest a tad over 10 pounds.

    Do you MN guys fish channels or flatties primarily?

    Hanson,

    I primarily go after flatheads, the bigger the better. I do catch the occasional channel though. I am going to have to try some channel ice fishing soon, as it sounds like a good time.

    I do most of my catfishing in the Minnesota and St. Croix rivers in and around the Twin Cities, and also make a few trips a year just outside the Mankato area, that's where I have caught my biggest over the last couple years.

    I always fish for flatties, although I catch a few channels here and there. I do most of my fishing near the St Peter area, but am starting to fish up near the cities more.

    I'm a flathead fan myself, I don't mind the channels though.
    Only been fishing the Minnesota river, curious to try the Mississippi and St. Croix, this spring and summer.
    When or whats the earliest time in the season that you guys start going after Flatheads???
