Since work burns all of my daylight time,we are going to hit Waukenabo tonight to see if we can do any damage.

Early on a guy can snake out some nicer fish.

I'll shoot some pics if I find anything worth shooting.

I noticed the houses that are out there are away from the island. There was open water there the day before the first big snow so I imagine that it is not too safe in that area.

We did not go.

I know there is some thin ice out there.

how are the smaller lakes doing for ice conditions CK?

I would like to try fleming the weekend before christmas if there is not too much slush, plus I need to use my wheeler to pull out the house. confused.gif

Most all lakes have the same conditions.

8" of ice and slushy spots.The snow is settling which will help.

I was on Gun this weekend. Pulling a small portable with a wheeler was difficult. Deeper drifts in area from last weeks high winds coupled with slush make it tough going.

I have a fish trap pro and a 350 Honda. I made it around but there are areas where it has become solid only to fall off into the slush.

Ice has thickend up. One spot last night there was no water but after an hour we had to move the equipment to as not to freeze in. Water kept coming up.

The lake remains a mess.

I hear ya singin CrappieTodd.

We did hit Wauk Fri. night and there planty of slush pockets.

The snow has to settle or it needs to get 30 below for a few days for it to firm up.

It sure is a chore fishing right now.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
