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.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun 
    • Rick
      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.

      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
    • DonBo
      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
