Had two 4-person sleeper houses rented last weekend (Jan. 4-6) out of Zippel Bay Resort. We did real well in the 3 days. Totalled about 150 (walleye/sauger & 10 perch) between the two houses, including a 20-inch and 27 3/4-inch walleye both caught on rattle wheels on plain hooks & fatheads. We were woken up all 3 mornings around 7:45 a.m. to the sound of rattle wheels going off, and the bite would be hot for about an hour and then taper off. But we still had plenty of action throughout the day, and even were woken up a few times during the very early morning hours (2-3 a.m.) by the rattle wheels. The big walleye came at 10:15 p.m. on the last night of our stay. We caught a lot of dinky walleyes between 6-11 inches, but still caught plenty of keepers to go around (all 8 people went home with limits, and even had some to eat during our trip). Fished 22 feet, and they had our houses set up on the far out edge outside all of the other houses. Gold and pink/glow didn't let us down, jigging or deadsticking. Hope this helps. Good luck!!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
