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.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
