How are conditions on Melissa or Sallie. I have a wheeler and would like to go out from the public access to tip up fish Northerns.

Thanks

I've been driving on Melissa for a week now. There are two main trails to follow that allow for easy driving. If you are heading cross country, there are scattered slush pockets. I'm not sure on Sallie, but they are similar bodies of water just not seeing a lot of fishing traffic.

Dont have an ice report for you but on Sallie on New years day " third person report", they were nailing nice sized northerns all day long. Didnt get enough info to tell you where on the lake or what they were using but they had a lot of fun.

I had 10" of clear ice on Sallie a couple of weeks ago, and areas with bad slush. It might have cleared up a bit, but I imagine there is still some slush out there. I haven't seen any vehicle traffic out on Sallie yet, other than sleds and ATVs.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
