Big Point, 3 mile, Lakeside, Fischers, Agate Bay, and then the mud. Alot is going to depend on how far you can drive , or if you have a sled of 4 wheeler.

bringing 4-wheeler, so if we do decide to venture to the west part of the lake and good islands or points to fish at and how thick is the ice, how deep to fish, what kind of jigs and colers to use. that kind of help would be very nice for a new person on that lake

The 4 wheeler will help. I would get out in the deep water, or reef edges. Use Northland Eye dropper jig- orange. Glow jigs probably 1/8 oz. down to 1/16. (chart/glow, orange/glow, black/glow) Jigging raps, sweedish pimples with minnow heads when jigging these types of lures.

You could always use a plain red or glow hook with a minnow under a bobber also if fishing inside a house.

Weather permitting I would put a tip up out with larger minnows- maybe suckers 5-9 " (for a shot at a Pig) or larger shiners (4-7").

You could otherwise get by with rainbows or smaller shiners 3-5"

Good luck and Post your results.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
