I can tell you that permanents have been getting broken into the last couple weeks on Hall. I stopped and talked to a few guys on my way off the ice this morning and they said 6 got hit last night and quite a few last week. My aunt lives on Amber, and yeah- I don't really recall anyone driving out on there either. I have yet to fish it this winter, but may tomorrow. Caught a nice catfish there last winter

That is horrible. Respect people. I never leave much in my wheelhouse, but the fact that they would break the door to get in is cost enough. Come on people get some pride and respect others stuff.

The guy I talked to had the window busted and guy reached in and turned the knob. He was about to board up the window. They will catch the person

The lake south of hall froze out in 2001 and there has not been a decent bite there since.Used to be my favorite lake.Amber you can get on with a car but i have been out there twice and its super slow out there.If you want a good lake that has a good bite go to fox.I have not been to budd for a couple weeks so i am unsure if the airators running.Good Luck

Dan,

Is there any size to the Crappies on Fox?? What access are you using?? We just got back from Mille Lacs and should have listened to everyone and went somewhere else..Tracey

ML disappointing? My dad and I went to Fox yesterday, set up under the power lines and didn't catch anything. We headed to St James today and had about a hundred fish marked on my MarCum and his Vex, but not a single biter. PPL were pulling perms off St James big time.

There are some decent crappies on fox.Under the wires is not where they are right now.Small perch and wallys are in the hole under the wires.Go east where the perms are in 17 foot and its crappies galore.After dark is best.I have been using the NE access.Big rut there so i would be very carefull if your trying with a car.Theres crappies and perch by the first 3 perms just out from the landing.

You drove by me yesterday, Dan. I am assuming thats where you were headed. You aren't kidding about that rut, my Mazda MPV almost rubbed.

There must not be too awful much pressure on Hall this year. Usually there'd be enough houses there for a little insurance to prevent that. Shack owners need to get to know each other and form some sort of watch relationship. It sure would be nice to catch these punks. Catching several of them will do good for all.

Is the driving on fox usually pretty good? Just wonderen because of all the pionts there might get to be some current in there. We have only fished once ice fishing and it was right in front of the boat landing we ended up only geting a little walleye and sunfish, and we might have to go try it again by the power lines.

If you enter from the north east corner you can drive all the way to the power lines.There is a little open water just next to the plant.There is also open water where the discharge from the plant is.I have driven from the north east corner all the way past the plant in the bay north of the plant.I can tell you that under the wires right now is not good for the panfish.Try going to the point just before the power lines in 17 fow.There was 2 perms there still last weekend.In the middle of the bay just north of the plant theres a good early morning and late evening bite.

Didn't know they caught the guy or guys. I figured they would.
