Been out a few times in the last 2 weeks. I only fish White Bear during the week in the evenings. I have had good luck fishing docks with wacky rigs, but through the two weeks the average size around the docks has gone down. I tried deeper and found them to be very sacttered.Good luck. smile.gif

Was out last friday. Couldn't catch anything over 2 pounds. They were very scattered, but had fun. Let me know if you have any better luck.

Was out this morning. First fishing for walleye, got one 17-18" in about 26 fow, right as the sun was coming over the horizon - no bites after that. On crawler and spinner. Then brought some older folks out and dragged jigs and rigs with some OLD antique rods and reels wink.gif Ended up with one very nice smallie, one smaller smallie and a handful for small largemouth.

Main thing I am surprised at, is that we only got one snot rocket. Used to be you would get them all the time.

Seems to me that there is more crap weeds than there used to be - i.e. not as much cabbage or coontail, and more of that slimy stuff that just holds onto the hooks.

My next trip there will be senkos on the inside weed edge.

Went out on tuesday did pretty good, it was very windy. My buddy and I caught alot of 1-2 pounders. We were blessed or should I say my buddy was blessed with a nice 3 1/2 pound large mouth. Fishing senkos wacky rigged around docks and out to 10 fow.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
