We were on Lake George two weeks ago. We fished north and east of the access by the small cluster of houses. We fished for about 3 hours and caught 1 11" walleye. I was marking a few fish on the Vexilar but couldn't get anything to bite. I assumed the bite must have been slow at the time because it was a nice Sunday morning and their was no one around. We had fished at Portage Lake on Saturday, another nice day, again we were marking fish but couldn't get them to bite. I didn't see anybody catch anything that day. We should have worked harder on Lake George, but it was such a nice day we took it easy and enjoyed the surroundings.

Went up there on Saturday started at about 7:45 and fished until 4:00! it was a struggle all day long you had to keep moving with the school of fish! The fish that we did catch were nice fish! We had 4 guys at ended up with I think 27 or 28 nice fish caught alot of small crappies to small to keep (I mean really small. But Overall it was fun and it wasnt to windy til later in the day and by that time we had some spots down there to fish!

Hope to head up to the cabin this weekend. Does anyone know the ice conditions on George or any other area lakes? Are they driving or walking?

My brother lives about 40 miles south of Lake George and has been fishing and driving on the ice by his place this week and says he has 2&1/2 feet yet and the ice is good.

Lake Alice

I remember talking to you. Did well open water as usual except in August when it turned into a cesspool full of bullheads. Fished it a few weeks ago and nada. Only lookers on the vex. I spent time this winter on another lake up there and did pretty well for perch and crappies, over new years and spring break.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
