Any eye reports from Union or Maple?

Should be excellent fishing lately if the wind dies down. Used to be good during deer hunting and before west Union froze up. I think my hands are still cold frown.giffrom years ago when it was 5 above and in the boat on west Union grin.gif

Fish, Looks like you are the only one around here that can withstand those cold temps. You sure did haul in some huge eyes. How large was the biggest you caught?

Well being I called you and filled you in on the info I won’t say much here. The biggest was 10.5 lb caught by Paul V.

I did purchase the Skiple <spelling>spear yesterday. Don’t know if I should keep it or sell it tho. Looks like brand new and he purchased it new from the brothers.

Good luck up north if you guys go.

Any of you guys been out on any of the lakes around Ersking yet? My dad has been out on Little Sarah spearing and he said the water is pretty cloudy he is hoping to hit the lakes soon for some panfish/walleye action. It sounds like the snow is really going to mess up the ice though. How bad is the flooding?

I was out and checked the ice depth on the west side, only found about 3 - 4 inches with about 5 or more inches of snow on top. It didn't flood when I cut the hole but you can be sure there will be some flooding going on.

I would imagine other areas have more ice, west side just froze over Tues. other areas have been froze for longer.

Saw 3 houses out on the west side and a little bit of flooding at the access.

I hope people play it safe for a while, first look and you would think it was Febuary out there with all the snow but with only a few inches of ice, we need COLD weather for sure now.

      I have been out the last 3 weekends without success.  Although I do know my boat and equipment are all in working order!  Water has stayed in the low to mid 50's during this period.  I have fished Balyntine, Francis, and Big Jefferson.   I have fished shallow, suspended, and deep.  Having fun and know I'll soon be in the zone!

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
