sat the 23rd I walked out on the dock (in a litle bay on cross lake) and walked off it and it held then I sat on the dock and kicked the ice and I could not break through. little pine is that the lake Cedar Chest is on..if so that was fully froze over......on thursday I went for a drive and the bays on the chain were about to frezze fri same drive and they were locked.....ie Moolight Bay (the bay leading to the bar) was open thursday locked up Fri......I would imagine that foot travel this weekend might be possible......a friend also said that clamshell was about completely forze as of Friday also.....

Anybody fish this lake? Wondering how it is going?

Also are the ice conditons good? Did those pockets of open water show up again this year?

Finally heading up this weekend, can't WAIT!!!

Also wondering? I am not going up until late Jan-early Feb, so mainly wondering about ice. Do you think it will be safe to drive a 1/2 ton truck on Crosslake? I haven't fished it cept once in winter, and we just followed some truck tracks and stayed near shore last year.

Irish or anybody, not asking for lakes, but has fishing been good on the smaller lakes in that Crosslake/Emily area? My lake is small lake nobody goes to, not destination lake, but we have fun with crappies and small pike. Looking forward to a couple trips this winter. Going to try a few larger (but still small, Greer, etc.) lakes as well.

Thanks for any info.

there are a few houses out on little pine, i noticed a couple perms on the east shore just north of the old access.

the bite hasn't been to great lately. my honey hole has been found, and nothing doing there either.

fish have been finicky and running real small.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
