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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
