Yeah I was out there on Saturday. Set up in the "village", between the points. Should have probably found our own spot though, tons of people out there and lots of wheeler and sled traffic. Only got a few crappies.

Ice was 7-8". There is a pretty good trail started out from the access.

I was out there last week. About 8" of ice. Did see a car and small suv drive out, still not thick enough for me to risk it. I'll stick with the atv for now. Crappies were biting, but size was an issue... 7 to 9 inches are about the biggest we pulled up.

I was out there all day on Saturday. We were out in the Village. We got there at daybreak and fished until 5:00 p.m. We caught tons of teenie weenie perch and a few bluegills. I have to say I was a little disappointed! Not so much with the fishing but with what was all over the ice. Garbage! My son picked up a BIG bag of other people's crap! Beer cans, plastic bottles, paper, little crappies people left on the ice. It's no small wonder that our lakes are going to you know where. Personally I think its our responsibility to one, clean up after ourselves and two tell the slob next to you to clean up. My son is 12 and he had more responsibility than alot of the people I saw out there on Saturday. What a circus! Buffalo is pretty much the same thing. If you bring it with you to the lake take it home with you and put it where it belongs!!!! Also, if your not going to keep those 6" to 8" crappies please throw them back.

Was out last week I stayed away from the crowd and fished the first point from the landing. I fished from 1-5pm and kept 10 gills that where decent size. I also had a tip up out and not one flag. I was suprised by the size of the gills i caught considering in the past nothing but dink size fish.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
