Thanks for the Schilling update.

Check the Metro forum. I think there's 6 or 7 pages about Waconia on there. Slow bite but the quality is good.

Hey Pigdogger, welcome to the forum. Give the West Metro forum a shout. You'll get better, quicker results. I've been out on Waconia a handfull of times and it has been slower for us but with the average sizes of fish are above average. I fish around the Pilsbury area in about 20 fow. Usually targeting Crappies.

My dad was out on Hydes a few weeks ago and it was bad. He went back since and its been really hit or miss, but if you do get some action it doesnt last long is a fast big/short bit

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
