You may beat yourself over the head looking for weeds with color, so I would opt for the rocks or sand. With that being said, if you look in areas that traditionally hold weeds well into the season, start there and work from there. There should be a good rock bite taking shape any time, if not already, too.

Go slow. This is probably too late but good luck and post your results.

Missed your post. We went out of Terry's. It was tuff out there on the NW side. We called it at 11pm as the winds would not allow us to head to the rocks. Wind and subfreezing temps are a dangerous combination. Glad you guys made it back safe.

We fished this weekend last year up on the NW side and had great luck! I know we never trolled over 1mph, and we used HJ14s. A friend from California caught a 27 inch pig as his first ever walleye. I think I ruined him for life.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
