there was open water out there the day before the first snowfall. though much of the lake was froze around the edges, there couldnt have been 4" before we got all this snow. driving past after the snow many areas of slush were showing up. now add the last batch of snow and things can only be worse.

I'd be extremely cautious this year!

I am with Da Minnow-Man --

Stay off Big C for a while -- It is WAY behind.

Anybody been out on Upper Cormorant. Never fished it and thinking of giving it a whirl. Hows the ice? Are there walleyes as the DNR report show?

Minnow-man --

That is creepy -- you might have to come to Pelican and visit me.

TEh DNR reports are fairly accurate in the walleye numbers but they are hard to catch some days on Big C, mainly due to the large amount of bait and forage in the lake. Most people here have had some good luck though, I hit big C about 1-2 doz times a year and do OK. I have never done phenomanaly (spelling?) but I have done OK. There are about 3 real hot spots on the lake usually, Most are in the water, if not it is at the Pub down the road. Good luck

PS. Not to be a smart allec about the spots but I really dont want to post exact locations, look at a map, look for islands, rocks and channels, IF you find those 3 distinct things you will find the fish on Big C.

Anyone been by bc recently? Its almost too bad we didnt get all the snow a week or two later - many of our lakes would have safer ice right now..

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
