5 - 12" of ice scattered throughout the lake.

Yes, the 'eyes are biting on tip-ups or Buckshot spoons.

was out there this saturday. i found aboout 12 inches all over but I did talk to some people who hit a few slush spots and they noted about 8 inches in those. there are some good sized perms out there and I saw one fool drive all the way across the lake from beaver dam to the island. I think were a good couple of cold days from driving myself but others have done it. fishing was slow managed a couple northerns one about 4 pounds one the pannie rod boy was that a battle and one one a tipup that went about 6 or 7 both are still swimming. marked a lot of fish from 12 to 20 fow but couldn't get them convinced to eat. fished from beaver dam all the way to the island. wasn't able to fish the primetime but I did talk to a friend who tried the deep water 30 fow and said the same. lots of fish on the screen but nothing cooperating. I tried about every bait imaginable and the fish would come up amd look at it then leave. little early in my opinion. good luck if you go

      Leech, my experience exactly, I hated the thing! I'm a Mister Twister Piranha guy, it's a little heavier duty than the green ones but never had trouble with the green ones either over the many years I've used them. I can use a filet knife on those rare occasions we do a shore lunch somewhere.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.
