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..

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
