What's biting on Owasso, White Bear, or Bald Eagle? White Bear and Owasso have been slow but I haven't hit Bald Eagle yet. Is Bald Eagle driveable with a 1/2 ton truck?

WB is a tough lake to fish it is very clear

I found crappies in 28 feet of water. I had tried all over between 8 feet and 22 feet prior to that and had nothing until I went way deeper. We ended up with a bunch of crappies and one walleye. Nothing big but it was certainly entertaining.

Had been having less than great luck on WB, so went to Bald Eagle this morning. Tried one likely (but out of way) spot and didn't mark a fish. Tried another near our fav summer spot, and no walleyes, but bro-in law saw a couple pike swim by on camera, and we were deeper and caught a mess of small sunnies and a couple crappies, in about 20 FOW. Nothing special. Plenty of ice for driving.

And plenty of trash out there. Holy cow, makes me embarassed to be an ice fisherman... I know it most likely isn't the folks who visit here, but I wish they would pick up after theirselves. We picked up a bunch of beer and Dew bottles on way in.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
