How far south from camp are you? I am a couple miles south of main gates.

We don't go past 115 bridge very much, fish mostly between the bridge and the park. They have been starting to hit topwaters pretty good lately. I don't use buzz baits much, mostly pop-r's and chug baits. Today my wife was using leechs and caught a few really nice ones.

We have a red 14 Lund with a muskie sticker on the side, if you see us out there give a holler.

I tried wading from the Nokassippi access. Caught an 18 inch smallmouth 2nd cast that was about it. A bit too deep and mucky for wading look forward to coming back in my canoe. The backwaters must be a blast in the spring.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
