If you are spearing let us know what the conditions are like. I have talked to a few people who have been out - they all say the water clarity is really bad. Looking for a lake that has clear water.

Cool, hopefully you'll get rid of some of those snakes in there! That lake has become over-run with small northerns......IMO it needs a slot limit.

The first day out is in the books.There is 8inches of solid ice under a foot of snow. I punched three holes in 15 feet with minimal flooding. Also punched a hole in 9 feet for the spear house with moderate flooding. Will have to let that area refreeze then set the house.Kept one slimer 3-5 lb and 6 sunnies for the first meal. Threw back 4 snakes and 4 small crappies.Nobody on Lizzie or Franklin. One perm on Crystal far east side.My plan is to use portables for now and not be in a big hurry to get the big house out yet.We did not need this snow this early so give Mother Nature some time and things will come around.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
