Fished Benton yesterday between the north campground and the rock pile. 11" ice and no fish. Drilled holes to the south of Norw. point. There is a line running north and south where it was open longer on the west side. The ice on the west was 8" on the east side it was 11" only went a couple hundred yards because there is another area that was open from the geese. Should even out with the nightly lows as they are. Only saw two other shacks on the whole lake.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
