Quite honestly, that question has been asked several times, but nobody is saying a thing. There was a winter kill there 3-4 years ago and there should be some decent size pannies in there, at least in theory. I plan on hitting it myself either Thursday or Sunday , mainly for some hammer handles for pickling.

I was out two weeks ago. 25 ftw off the beep hole we found crappies. We hade to drill 30+ holes before we found them. They hit all day with a little work. No size to the crappies. 7 inches at best. As far as the northerns I've seen one speared other than that not a tip up all day. There are bigger crappies in there but we couldn't find them..........

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
