I have never fished it through the ice but fish it a lot in the summer time. My wife's grandma has a cabin on the lake. LOTS of northerns about 18-22 inches. It's hard to believe you have not got a flag out there. It's a nice little lake!

I used to fish it alot growing up in Annandale. Good lake for sunnies. Maybe lots of those pike migrate back throught the channel into Clearwater for the winter????

Pike, how deep are you fishing? If remember correctly, last year there was a lot of snow on the ice allowing the fish to go shallower than normal. Have you tried fishing deeper water? This past weekend I fished in 27 fow off a sunken island and saw many slimers coming up to inspect the bait. Something else to consider.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..
