HEY BUCK,

NORMALLY THAT IS COMING INTO SOME OF OUR BEST ICE FISHING., I'M THINKING IF STAYS COLD (WHICH ITS SUPPOSE TO) WE MAY HAVE EXCELLENT ICE CONDITIONS, THE ICE HAS IMPROVED ALOT IN THE LAST WEEK., I THINK IT WILL BE A GREAT TIME TO COME UP TO RAINY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hey B&D,

Arguably one of my favorite months to fish is march and april. I think it is because fisherman start there preperation for open water, and lose focus or motivation for hard ice angling. Big pike and walleyes are to be had late ice. The other nice thing is you don't have to contend with the brutal cold typically that time of year.

As for the Outdoor weekly article I'm on this week. I would say that they will likely use your photo's as long as it is a nice quality picture. Most publications don't like stringer shots or piles of dead fish on the ice. Nice clean shots with no blood... and of course BIG FISH! Ha! Good Luck! Look me up when your up, or pass a message on through the Fishing Queen!

Hey Rainydaze looks like they put it in the paper...but I wasn't the only one with a fish from woodys fairly reliable guide service! Looks like Dave Genz got the cover, but none the less still some nice eyes from rainy going to be in the paper.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
