Anyone know if the lakes in the area have locked up? Little Boy in particular?

Thanks

I was in the area over thanksgiving weekend and most of the lakes that are smaller and shallow were locked up. How much ice? I dont really know. The bigger and deeper lakes that I saw were still open, but starting to form ice on the shorelines. I'm guessing it wont be long.

Why should it matter if Little Boy is frozen. It's not like ur gonna catch anything. Give me a call if u want to actually catch a walleye and we'll go to OT.

Any ice reports on Wabedo yet? Done fairly well there in the past. Will be up there for work from Fri-Mon. Thinking about bringing the porty with.

Bullz,

We (6-8 of us)generally get out to Widow once every January to fish walleyes. Been doing it for 4-5 years. One time we did really well. The other times it was nothing or maybe one fish. They are in there but we either don't know where to go or the population isn't real big.

I have only fished widow once for about an hour (had problems with the depth finder) and I managed to pull out one 22 incher.

Got about 10" snow. Chances are any lakes are going to be very slushy or very dangerous to access. Some of the smaller lakes had 5-6' ice, but with the snow it could be dicey.

On a very small lake just north of Widow we have 7-8" of ice, and about 7" of snow. Was safe enough for an ATV, but getting a little tough to move around with slush forming Sunday. Will be a mess unless this cold continues and firms it up..........

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
