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.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
