You may want to change your name to "perchmatt" or "smallcrappiematt" if you go there.

No seriously though, the people who bash that lake are the ones in the groups of 100s of houses- well its really no wonder why they are getting skunked. Too much noise and commotion for good numbers of fish to stick around.

I've fished that lake all my life. In the winter, you're best off to venture on your own away from the masses with a good lake map and gps (Try the areas from the NE corner of the lake to just W of the island on the North side of the lake)

Look for a weedline that tapers into a deeper basin this time of year and set up deeper during the day and work your way to the edge of the weeedline during lowlight periods.

Is you want a shot at getting into some decent fish do what SWMuskeye says and stay away from the crowds. Sorry, didn't mean to bash my hometown lake.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
