Good Luck to everybody tonight. I've been hearing the ice is 6-7+" out on KR7 and the bite is strong. I suspect many fish will be brought to hand tonight.

How was the ice and the fishing overall at Pontoon Slough for the tournement? I've never been to one as I work weekends, but was planning on hitting that one as I had the day off but the starter went out of my truck in the morning. thus I have not made it out ice fishing yet and was wondering how the fishing was? It was good there last year, but alot of little ones.

The ice is good in pontoon with report of 7+" in most areas. Fish were easy to find and catch, but many smaller fish. Crappies came tough, but a few were caught.

The best thing you can do is send me an email to get on the UPLR email list. I send out about 1 email a week with all the details of each UPLR event. I also post general details here. You can go to any event you wish. It's 100% payback for each event. Basically all you have to do is show up at the designated UPLR event registration location. If you haven't already, please visit the UPLR website (link in my signature) for all the details.

Anybody can enter any of the UPLR events. Mike, owner of Hooked on Fishing Bait and Tackle is running the Saturday morning events, so I'm not exactly sure the boundaries for the finger lakes. You could call or stop by HOF and talk to Mike, or drop me an email and I can get you in contact with him.

**NOTE** The event on Saturday Jan 12 has been moved from Lake City to Lake Zumbro.

Sounds like we are going to have a good turnout for the Willow Creek event this next Monday evening. I've even heard it rumored that a custom ice fishing rod donated by DLF Custom Fishing Rods is available for a random giveaway.

These event are open to any and everybody. All ages welcome. Beginner, or advanced, or in-between, or knowledge seekers. There really is no signup, except for showing up at an event. If you like to be added to the UPLR email list, send me a quick email. I send out about 1 UPLR email a week with results, updates, and upcoming event information.

These are just small local events that see anywhere from 10-30 participants. Friendly $10 buy-in, and 100% payback. Even if you don't finish in the money, the information learned from these events is worth the $10. You will get the chance to see and ask what people were using for tackle, bait, etc. You'll see where the winners were fishing, and you might learn what depth was producing, etc. The next time you visit that lake you will be armed with all this information, thus increasing your chances at success.

Anybody have a current ice thickness report for Lake Zumbro near The Ponderosa campground? Cars, 4 Wheelers, or should I bring a life jacket?

Anybody have any good suggestions on where to fish for the Saturday tournament? Is there good fishing near the campground?

There were several cars, trucks, and 4 wheelers out there on Tuesday morning. The heaviest I saw as a full size Chevy extended cab.

I have not drove my 4 door Dodge Dakota out yet. The ice is around 11" think in the middle of the lake where I fished on Tuesday.

I've heard of people doing OK fishing in the bay(s) just north/west/left of the public Pondy landing. I've never tried it thou.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
