I know a couple guys that went up this last weekend and said the fishing was tough. Caught some nice perch on Leech but that was about it. Smaller lakes were slow, very slow.

We were up in the Outing area last weekend and hit up Eagle lake, caught hundreds of sunfish but only were able to keep 30 for 4 guys, lots of sorting. Picked up a couple little snakes on a tip up with shiner. As far as ice goes there was a solid 2+ft on the lake and i guess they've been driving all over up there for quite some time. The lake are fairly rough due to the early slush freezing and the tracks made through them but overall i'd say the lakes are better then i ever thought they would be this year.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
