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..

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
