Yes, they are keeping a spot in the lake open. There are also many on Lime Lake in Avoca.

I guess that depends on how far you are travelling and if you can get permission to hunt them in the fields.

Personally, I'd take a road trip to hunt them. I don't know the count on Talcott, but (I'm guessing here) I'd say about 500 or so honkers are roosting on Lime in Avoca.

My buddy's been down there for the last 2 days trying to get on some fields around talcot with no luck. They are all spoken for already. You would probly have better luck geting on some fields near Lime, not as much pressure.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
