We stayed at Dickies over the weekend and had a fun time (it was a slow bite). Caught some small perch and thats about all we saw on the camera below the house. We were portable on Friday and caught a couple jumbo's, a couple of the guys were portable Saturday morning and caught a few jumbos.

It was packed up at the bar at Hunters Point on Saturday for the Arctic Blast. Most of our group was up there all day expect for a few of us.......I finally stopped in for a beer after not catching anything but a few small perch all day. That place was packed.

Near white out conditions at times Saturday night.....very windy and cold. Two of the vehicles in our group would not start Sunday morning. -15* (actual temp) when we pulled off the lake around 11:00am.

Only thing we saw on the camera other then crayfish (a bunch of 2-3" perch): Picture022_small.jpg

Cold and windy Sunday morning:

Myself and 4 others were out on sunday and managed to keep a few jumbos! Put the camera's down and there are Perch every where but man they would not take anything. We threw the box at them, bait presentations and just could not keep them interested long enough to bite. It was brutal out there this weekend but it was still a blast!

Saturday the bite was good with 2 of us catching 21 jumbos. At about 12:30 we had a good school come in and caught 8 in a row as fast as we could get our lines down. From then till we left Sunday it really got slow with only 4 more caught. Don't usually see to many eyes but Sunday am we saw a bunch on the camera (would not bite)and not to many perch. Not sure if it was the weather or the eyes but perch fishing was the slowest we have seen this winter on Sunday.

The weather was brutal. Just trying to gas up the generator was a challenge. At times I could not see my truck that was parked a few feet from my house.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
