Last night

Spent 4 hours trolling the rocks on the west and southwest sides last night and couldn't get them to go for us. We tried everything... different speeds, different lures, different depths. It looked like it should have been perfect out. Anyone else have a similar experience, or if you didn't, can you tell me what I was doing wrong. Thanks.

I had pretty good luck trolling the inside weed line @ 1.2-1.6 mph.

Was on the pond Turs. night from 10:30pm to 5:30am by my lonesome self. Managed a 35" northern, 15" 19" 19" 21" 26" 27 1/2" and 28 1/2" eyes. All caught on a 4" shallow running black and gold rapala in 4' to 6' of water just outside of Cove Bay 1.4 to 1.8 mph was the ticket. Not a fast and furious bite but a night well spent considering my only other option was to stay at work. Somehow a full moon and cool weather convinced me to take 1/2 a night of vacation on short notice.

      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.
