Never had much luck icefishing it. We found some panfish in the middle of the lake a time or two.

From what i have heard for ice fishing the water is really dirty and its hard fishing. When i have open water fished it lots of small fish.

Went out a couple of days ago just from the access, drilled a bunch of holes (25-30) w/ the hand auger from 12-28 fow, which was a chore w/ 10" of ice! I donno if that's how much was over the entire lake, but there was plenty by the access. Anyways, didn't mark a single fish and decided to call it a day early, I was tired from the other 80 or so holes I'd drilled on 2 other lakes

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
