On the East end most of my fish are comming out of 19' to 30' of water this week.

Jigs/minnows or lindys/minnows.

We were just on the West end of the lake and we caught our walleyes in 25'to 35' fow, using jig and minnows.Hibbing Point is a good place to try if you are on the west end. No luck on the muskies though.

On the east end we were hammering them in a 24-28 foot hole off of an Island. We were using the (I tie my own) northland spinners (w/glow in the dark beads) that look like a fish and #6 chartruese gamakatsu hooks. 4 foot leader. 1/2 oz no snag sinker. From morning till 5pm they bit hard when trolled fast with a shiner minnow. Then at night we switched to 2 foot leaders with chartruese rattle bead and chubs in 10 feet of water.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      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.
