going out tomorrow. anything biting? Also can you still park on the road by the bridge? I have seen people doing it. My sis just bought a house a couple miles from there.

Where's bait shops? North branch?

Thanks in advance.

The closest bait shop would probably be the one at Harris. It's just off 35W at the Co Road #10 exit. Good luck! 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

hehe, one tiny perch. Nobody was hitting anything where we were. Just off the main lake by the 50ft hole. My new 4wheeler is pending reg and tags, so I just couldnt drag it far enough. A few guys far out caught walleyes, but NONE were keepers. biggest I heard was 16 inches (17 inch min. for keepers) and NOBODY could find the crappies. But I did talk to a few guys who pointed where to find them for next time.

Like I said real slow for everyone. I got two REAL NICE strikes, but that was it for me. Two cameras and a vex. Didnt even mark a fish.

still wishing for a fish fry.

Could a wheeler get around on the lake or is it slushy? Also wondering where you parked?

I saw 2wd wheelers and 3 wheelers all over the place. Its about 6 inches of snow on top. Very little slush under it. I parked at the resort next to the bridge.

Just remember the limit is only 5 crappies and any walleye over 17.

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
