Quite a few people out over the weekend in portables. Going out from both accesses. Went out for a little while myself. About 4 inches of good ice. Snow is pushing some water thru the holes making slush. After drilling about 30 holes it seems fairly consistent.

Correct spots of alot of slush....last night 2 perms were set out pulled by a 4-wheeler.......this is out of the north or flat access....I never really have caught more than 1 walleye on a trip out there.....I have caught 2 on 2 outings this year (12" and 13") smile.gif but never catch much...crappies and sunnies on the other hand you can catch alot of them but they are small and finicky!! Good Luck

      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 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.
