The opera by Tchaikovsky is stunning, but I don't think he ice fished. Maybe we could come up with an ice fishing opera. The title could be "My Frozen Heart".

If your talkn bout the Swan lake near the Hwy 59 south and I-94 area, good luck. This lake i quit fishing along time ago, Years ago i caught some nice fish, but i quit fishing it over 8 years ago and havnt went back, let me know if you go. Kinda sounds like nothings changed. Good luck, the Perch

Yep, thats the one. Why did you quit fishing there? Did it get fished hard or is it just not a great lake? My girlfriends parents have a cabin on the lake so I figured I'd give it a try.

Fishing wasnt ever real great out there, you can get some baitfish but game fish are hard to find. I was down in Fergus the last couple of days and tried some different lakes. I didnt get time to get over there to take a look to see if an houses were up, but to be honest, I havnt heard anything real good about it in some time. the Perch

I haven't yet. I'm hoping to go this weekend. The kids schedule lightened up so now I might get a little extra fishing time.

Very nice, let me know how you do. I use to have a cabin out there back when I was going to HS in FF back in the early 90's. We were near the public access. I'd like to get back there sometime, if there's fish of course. the Perch

My girlfriend and her family all have cabins up there. It sure is a nice lake. Hope there are some fish in it.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
