you do good on baxter there Oz? I did fairly well about 3 years ago catching sunfish on first ice. Haven't been there since. I assume still the same catch going on there. Joe Guimont claims he has a crappie hole that were are going to on Sat. Will let you know where when I find out.

the lake used to have nice sunfish and crappies but it has been fished out the last 4-5 years.

didn't put much time into it last year as the bite was better on the colored lakes in the area. I know this freezes early and has had a sheet for about a week so I will go out on Sat morn and start drilling 100 holes!!...Give me a call BIFF

Stopped by the bait shop east of Princeton and was told Baxter had 2"-6" on it. The wind opened up Green and Spectacle last night. However, I drove by both at 2:30pm and Green was locked up and Spectacle still had a little open water in the middle.

the flat access on blue the ice in that area looked solid last weekend before the storm but the steep access the main lake was open a day or 2 before the snow so tread carefully there..........baxter as far as last weekend looked you could go anywhere..it has been locked for about 2 weeks now.
