Hmmmm.. Like I told you on the phone I did see a couple of knuckleheads driving on Muskeg when I was fishing on Wednesday. Reckon they came out of the estates or town as I spoke with Jim this morning and they're not letting folks drive on at the access off the island yet, he said another 2-3 days and 'maybe'.

Spoke with Michelle at Morris Point and they're not looking at opening their road to vehicles for awhile yet. Lake just is'nt making much for ice with all the snow even with these frigid temps.

Going out now can't be any more risky and dangerous than our last trip on the ice via truck last year though eh!!!

Fished Zipple all weekend. Used the four wheeler Friday

(-20!) so we were happy when they decided to open the road to trucks under 1 ton on Saturday. No problem getting around with the Tundra or the wheeler. Hardly anyone out there. Fishing was great, 14-15 inches at our spot in 24 feet.

I know, we talked about it, just lazy I guess. We have another wheel house we are pulling up in 2 weeks, that one will go in shallow. Didn't know if they would let us drive the truck out, and its a bit tongue heavy for the wheeler.

        Sorry for the sideways pics - I don't have time to edit.

      By far our most common is 1/4 oz.  Go as light as you can and still contact the bottom and feel it with a sensitive rod.  3/8 would be for over 20 ft if drifting or in current.  If I can't  get it done with 3/8 then I'm drifting too fast or in so much current there aren't many fish there anyway.  They'll be in a slack area where a 3/8 works better.

      Camping in Bear head state park this weekend, what can I expect for fishing?? looks decent, also bringing the tube for the kids, 10mph limit in the park so are there any decent public beaches in the area that we could run to for an afternoon of recreational boating, any info would be great, thanks guys!!

      You can say that again.    I've only heard you can't stay in the same place for more than 2 weeks.  I've seen people camping on some way back forest service roads.  They didn't look like designated camp sites to me.   How long/how often do you plan to go?  Tent or camper?

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.
