Haven't been out there myself but heard of poeple going out and catching fish. I was going to go out last night but decided on Fannie by Cambridge. I had 4 to 6 in. of ice and you can probably expect similar conditions on Pokegama. Be very wary as to thin ice most of the larger lakes around here didn't lock up until just before the snow. Some places we had only an inch of ice. Three in. of slush in spots made for difficult travel. Finding hard sled tracks made pulling a lot easier. Five small Crappies, very finnicky. Good luck and give us a report.

sorry i totally forgot about reporting back. we went out on the west side by muffies bar and went to the bottom of that sharp break in 18 FOW and we marked fish the whole time but couldnt get them to commit. we only stayed for about two hours and called it quits going home with a skunkage. by the way at frirst we tryed to get out from the south access pulling a snowmobile trailor behing the wheeler with all the gear on it and that definately didnt work. we ended up unhooking the trailor after about 100 yards and taking the wheeler trip after trip with the gear. A crack did open up behind us as we went towards muffies bar which was kinda scary as the water was just gushing out of that crack. wont be going back there for quite some time now.

yea i saw tons of snowmobiles going up and down the lake but the wheelers dont balance out the weight as well... By next weekend it should be locked up pretty tight but nobody was catching any fish so i will go to a different lake this weekend most likely..

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol

      My experiences would suggest, R&D  resort on Straight Lake and Eagles landing on 5th crow wing.
