If your talkin about green in Isanti, there has been some houses right out from the access, shallow, and dark houses. I heard a friend say there were alot more out there, but that is a long walk in the snow. I haven't been there yet, but going to Chisago tonight. Will post, and if you hit green, let us know would ya? Much appriciated, good luck.

fished blue 12/13 in the afternoon.

Caught sunnies in 12 ft of water, lot of small ones, but you can sort for decent size fish. Also caught a nice norther on 3lb line panfish rod and reel. Took a long time to land the fish, but a ton of fun

Good luck

sunday at blue lake i saw lots of houses by the point in the middle of the lake and was wondering if anybody was catching anything cuz i was closer to shore off the flat access and was hardly getting a bite but the guys next to me were pulling fish left and right so i just guess it was an off day for me

finesse fishing....use small baits is the trick that gets me fish out there.......I use plastics with a euro and go small......it's annoying sending down a small bait but if it gets you fish..........

Tried Blue lake twice last week. Stay away from the croud and think small. The smaller the better. I put some fish on the ice, but it was definatly a finesse bite. tongue.gif

any size to the fish?.....I have always caught them but I just don't see the size to take out the knife and get a quality fillet!!! It is definatly possible but I try to keep 10 inchers (crappie) and catch 1 maybe every 15 fish so I don't get meals from there......just wondering congrats on the fish!!! smile.gif

Oz,

I agree, I crappie fish Blue a lot in the summer and can catch 7-8" fish all day long, but rarely anything 10+

I got into a school of 10"+ fish a couple summers ago in about 15' off a weedline, man that was fun. Boated a 28" eye and a limit of slabs in a two hour span.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test    Tried to take a pic and flash wouldn't work on phone      Cret
