I have a buddy who goes a lot. He got there at 5AM on Saturday to find 18 trucks in the lot. I haven't gone yet but from what he says there are plenty of birds but you need an umbrella for all the shot raining down on you all day. I believe they put their boats in right under 169.

The ramp is off old 169 and there is alot of hunters but also alot of birds. Like box said, you might get rained on and you will have hunters set up very close to you. Any duck that enters the lake will not fly back out. I quite hunting there years ago but if you have a tolerance, good luck!

I will be out scouting around on the MN this afternoon. There is a lot of state park by jordan, and the ducks use it as a refuge from hunters.

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol

      My experiences would suggest, R&D  resort on Straight Lake and Eagles landing on 5th crow wing.
