Just left the lake and did ok. Fished out of Hillmans and tried at 8 miles out, then 5 miles out and finally 3.5 miles. Caught about 25 walleyes and 2 perch. 2 northerns 1-33" 1 28 1/2" No crappies. BJ from Hillmans helped us out and put us on some bigger walleyes at 3.5 miles out. Thank you to him for the help and hospitality for checking on us. We brought our own shack and he still wanted to make sure we were doing good. Definately went out of his way to make sure we were happy. Kelly P thank you for coming to check on us immediately when we were spinning our tires trying to move the house. Everyone was great. Thanks agian for working so hard to keep everyone happy on the lake and keeping the road in great shape

I was also up Thur - Sat and tried the same spot out of Hillmans - 8 miles out. Has some luck Thur night, but caught 1 walleye on Fri. afternoon - not even a bite at night. Was going to move, but elec. auger broke. Going back up on Tues.

Wondering how other people did over the past weekend. Any reports would be great. Thanks

Doug -

I'm gonna try out of Hillmans, taking the "Crappie Hwy" to the NW. People I have talked to are doing better out that way. I guess start there and see what happens.

Just got back. 3 of us started at the end of Hillmans road off to the right about 100 yards. Set up around 3 pm. Caught about 5 last one caught on rattle reel about 9am. Marked plenty of fish but would not bite anything from buckshots to plain hook to glow demons. Tried everything in my box. So we picked up and went to "crappie highway" The first road at 5.2 miles we took. Went down it a mile or so and set up around 3pm saturdayafteroon. Fished from 3 till 10am sunday without a single bite. Marked about 3 fish all night and we fished till 4am and put rattle reels out till 10. Going back in 2 weeks, hopefully it picks up a little. Still had a blast tho. What nice weather this weekend too!!

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      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.
