Went out xmas day from 2 till 7pm. Lite snow and warm.The Perch were active but small. After 5 the wallys moved in and we caught 7 and kept 4. All about 15" to 16". After dark it seams to shut down. At least were I was. Has anyone had luck after dark?

I'm new to the area and am thinking of trying this lake this afternoon. What were you using? Where would be a good spot to start? I'll post later and let you guys know how I did.

I was out there the afternoon of Christmas eve. I didn't even see any fish on the AquaVu until I got outside the pondweed edge. I would target the 12-15 foot range.

I only picked up one perch, but I had both kids with me and there was not much room in the portable. There are fish down there once you get deep enough.

good luck!

Decided to give ice fishing a try Scotty?

Ah, well. My son wanted to go out pretty bad, otherwise I would have stayed home.

Let's just say that it was more like a workout than fishing since I don't have a sled or 4-wheeler, and it's a LONG walk to where I wanted to fish. I had about 400 pounds of gear I had to pull through the 8"-10" of snow on the lake. I am still sore today. laugh.gif I don't see getting back out until I can take my truck out there.

I was out there on 12/26 and saw a full sized pick-up out there. I was just leaving, but looked like he drove from the landing to the north side of the island. He kept close to shore, so I think he was pretty safe, but I just shook my head and left. There was a good 10" of ice where I was, but as soon as you get north of that island I know it fades out. Just hope all was well. You won't see me out that early....

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
