I was out on the lake on the south west side last Saturday evening and picked up a few walleye's on the standard jigging spoon and minnow head right near dusk.

I found about 10" - 12" of good clear ice under about 6" -10" of snow. There was a few spots of very minimal slush but no problem getting around with a wheeler. There are some fairly hard small drifts to be aware of though.

It's a great time to be out on the ice with little fishing pressure or traffic!

Good Luck

Went out of Denny's resort on Wednesday. Fished all afternoon and caught a half dozen eyes. Looks like Nodak has a road plowed out a ways, and there were some vehicle traffic. There were some slushy conditions were we were, but not real bad. Ice measured up to be 14 inches where we were, but I will leave the vehicle driving to the fearless drivers.

Chuckster-

A 1/2 dozen eyes is only 3 real fish after a case of Natty!! When we going to plan a weekend to go up to Red? I might be able to get a Ice Castle house for a weekend from an account of mine but want to wait till the Craps are biting.

I haven't been down there, but Rick from Highbanks told me they had a road out quite a ways now to one of the bars.

I guess a quick phone call would be the best way to get it right from the horses mouth.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
