Hey PikeGuy,

I haven't been out there since the week between Xmas and New Years, but when I was, I drove my pickup out there on 15", so I would assume by now it may be approaching 2'. I usually hit the SE side of the hole in the main part of the lake and try about 7FOW. Good luck and let us know how you did.

I've heard good reports from guys who fish it regularly. I talked with a guy who ranted about it after I showed him a few spots on Minnewashta. The lake is very shallow. Two holes that drop to more than 10'. Take waxies and small iceflys.

Hopefully I will be out there Saturday or Sunday. If you see a silver F150 FX4 and trap Yukon, come on over and say hi.

Good luck and keep us posted.

I'll be out there all afternoon. Gettin a late start today but hopefully you'll see my silver FX4 out there by noon. I'll touch back later and let you know.

I do plan on searching around for awhile till i find what I'm looking for. No reason to sit on dead water. With pans during the day always stay on the move till you find active fish.

After going out there today I am done fishing sunnies for the season I think. Too many. I went searching for crappies with no

luck. The sunnies are everywhere. Everyone seemed to be getting more sunnies then they could handle.

Thinking about braving the cold tommarow morning and looking for some crappies out there, talked to a buddy yesterday and he said he found some but couldn't get them to bite. I will be talking with him to see if I can steal his spot and show him hos its done-haha... Anyway if anyone is out there feel free to stop in and say hi, I'm in a clam 2000 w/ a silver ranger.

      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.
