I was out on Pine this evening, pretty slushy. Tried out several spots without even a look. I know the lake pretty well, just doesnt seem to be producing this winter.

Seems like what ever you do you have to battel the slush all the lakes are the same .Pokegama has been putin out nice crappie,along wit hammer head snakes. Go out and do it and u might get a couple of walleys to pay u for your hard work. crazy.gif

how much ice was up on pine? i am headed there in the morning, didn't know if i needed the power auger or not. which part of pine did u fish? I had my permanant straight out from the access by the bridge on the south side. did fair last year nice slabs and it was like clockwork right at dark it seemed i caught the same northern everyday about 10-12lbs. have u ever got any eyes out of the lake. I have marked fish at the bottom in 30feet out from the bridge thought they might be catfish. i'll post how the kid and i do tommarrow laugh.gif

I have been fishing the lake for 20+ years, I dont believe there are any catfish in the lake. There are definitely eyes in the lake, I have caught (2) 30" in the last 10 years. Right now though, all of the eyes in the lake are pretty small. If you are looking for a good crappie bite, I would try the southwest corner of the lake in the mud hole. Or try more on the northeast side, have had good luck in the past. Be careful on the lake though, there is a slight current that runs through it. So stay away from the center of the lake, ice tends to be a little more dicey in that area. Good luck.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
