Went out lask weekend for a little while but didn't catch anything. I'll probably try it this coming week and work a little harder to try and find 'em.

I'll post a report if I do get out!

How was the ice/snow conditions? Would walking out be a tough go? How about ATV travel? Thanks for the info

angler, did you ever get back to Martin and do any good? I was thinking of hitting it in the morning...just wondering about a good place to start. thanks

Went out but didn't catch anything just a few bites, I've heard its been pretty slow this year so...

If you do end up going out though, my advice would be to get away from the crowds as usual, that's where I find the most fish.

Went out again last night, out from the bridge from 12-4 pm. Managed to catch a few small white crappies that seemed very skinny. Missed a few other bites but nothing that felt big. Probably should have stayed out later but it was extremely cold and windy. Lots of people out there though, didn't see anyone else catch any fish. Ice seemed plenty thick, about 10-12 inches, but there was some snow on top that made moving spots tough.

angler, thanks for the report. The weather has been less than optimal with the barometer and wind, etc. I never did get over there Monday. I assume that you mean the bridge by the dam in the deeper water. (Like I said, I have never been on the lake) I think we will try it Saturday and Im sure it will be busy everywhere if the weather report holds true. I'll check in if we end up there. Thanks

Went out today and it looked like there were lots of trucks and houses out by the point on the west side. Are the people out there catchin any?

I was out today in the afternoon and drilled lots of holes (ice about 17 inches thick), fished any where from 7-16 ft but only managed a few smaller crappies and one small sunny. Is any one catching any keeper crappies or any walleyes at all out there? Thanks for any help!

Havent been back to Martin for a couple of weeks. We had fished by that dam and it was the same story. Lots of little whites. Sorry...not much help.

we were over on FL and we had about 20 inches ice. We and others drove all over.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.

      Drove by Grays Bay this morning. The one and only house left has now partially fell thru. Not sure how this one is coming out.
