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

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!
