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..

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
