Our Duluth Fishing League (MMTS) is thinking of having a get together on BSL this weekend chasing slabs and tullies. Looking for a good place to access the lake and if their are any ice build ups we have to watch out for we will be driving out.

Crappie Kieth any help??

It's a bit early for the hot tullie action ,but I do know a few are being caught along with some decent slabs here and there.

The north end is the place to find them.

Take 14 off of 65 and head towards Savanna State Park.Go 8/10ths of a mile past the Prairie River Tavern and take a left at the CYC white signs.About 3/4 of a mile you'll drop down a big hill.The access is on the right 1/4mile past the bottom of the hill on the right.

You can drive out without a problem.No heaves.There are houses at the 34 foot hole ,but there are several holes along the north side.Get your gps's out.

Good luck.

Will be using my Low 332c for gps. When you said holes, I am hoping you meant depth and not open water. If you are out on Sat look for a Red f-150 with loadmaster on the rear window. Thanks>>>later the load

Made it out on Sunday and hit a spot that we found last summer. Did not do to bad some nice slabs but alot of little ones. When we arrived at the spot, there was no sign that a hole had been drilled this winter. Well guess what, some old man on a sled came up to us

and said that he had lived on the lake for 15 years and had never seen anybody fishing in that spot. Before we left, several sled came out and drilled some holes and started fishing close to us. So much for that spot>>>later the load

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
