The guy I talked to failed to tell me that so I guess we won't be heading over there. Do you have any other pointers for me on areas to go that produce some nice pike.

The shoreline from sprinsteel to south tip is a great place for pike, zipple bay is another, south shore out of warroad can be very good. Early march for me is just that, a little early, I like to wait till the last two weeks of march till ice out before my blood gets going for pike. But many have caught good pike in the time frame your going. Boar

your friend may have meant "south buffalo"?

or "buffalo point"?

this is the same thing boar is talking about when he says "south tip"

boar named some good spots and I agree with him, early march can be kind of dead.

Does anyone have any depth info or a rough idea where we should start. Last year we were a week later and fished in about 11ft. But I have also fished in as little as 2ft of water under the ice in the morris point area and did alright any help would be great.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
