There have been people out here since first Ice. I am assuming alot of pike is coming through the ice looking at where their shacks are. I do not ice fish, so I can't tell you whats biting.

You can definitely keep her occupied out here with the gills n sunnies, though they are stunted, a few keep crappies do come out.

You can catch plenty of pike on tip ups here, although in several years I have only seen 1 pike over 30" come out of the lake. It has special regs to release all pike under 30. Sunnies will bite on waxies, most are small. I have caught some nice crappies (10-12") but few in number have size...used minnows for them.

you catch pike all day long there most are 15" to 29" and since you can only keep 30" and up you dont usually keep too many, i did catch a 43" ladt summer out of there, so there are big ones just not too many. if you like bullhead, just lay almost anything on the bottom and catch those all day too.

Also the DNR netted 2 long nose gar. that'd be fun through the ice.

43"? That must be the one I see swimming past my sucker minnows all the time. I know there are a few 40+ers in there. Just have to weed out the hammer handles.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
