I was out there this afternoon with my kids. There were a LOT of people on the ice! We fished the north bay with the crowd. We caught 2 sunnies, both 8", 16 perch 8-9", 1 13" walleye, and my son caught a 38" pike on a fathead just before dark. He saw 3 other big northerns on the camera so I ma sure if we had targeted them, we would have done well.

There is a pretty good trail from the ramp to the north bay but a lot of snow on the ice so 4x4 is a must if driving out.

Out on Swede Grove yesterday, saw a lot of perch and b-gills on camera. A couple of pike came thru but no bites. If you like catching medium to small perch and medium size gills/sunnies it's alright. Also saw a fish house that had burned up out there, hopefully the owners pull off all thats left of it soon.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!
