I've been hearing some good reports from rebel hump directly to the northwest of us about 3 1/2 miles out.

I was at Winnie all week. Tried the north shore bite early with little success. Fished the humps Wed- Fri. did very well releasing over 30-walleyes over 17 inches in 3 days. Caught some eating sized fish also. Seemed as though the fish were not on the tops but sides of the humps. Used Lindy/leech exclusively red hook seemed to help. We have never caught so many big fish...it was a blast!

Sounds like you had a good trip. I'm heading up the weekend before the 4th and hope to have that kind of success. I actually caught a few out on the humps the first weekend in June but there were plenty of fish shallow still so I didn't spend much time out there. Did you find any over 26"? Our group has landed some 25" and 26" fish this year but it's rare to see them much bigger than that. One of these times we may actually be on the big lake at the same time. Let me know the next time you are going to be up.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
