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?

I have been out to both WB and Owasso. Not a fish on WB but did ok on Owasso.

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.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
