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.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      Thank you.

      If you want to get in there by snow mobile or walking over, Wolf Lake is worth a try.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
