Or lack there of I should say. Drove across to the WI side...should've known it was going to be a bad day when after I get to the other side, I get stuck in a snow drift. So if the guys in a tan truck with plow are FM'ers, thank you for pulling me out and even plowing a better path for me to make it back to the main road.

As for the fishing...NOTHING! Fished 9 to 36 ft deep. Had 1 bite, in 19 ft. Felt pretty good sized but I lost it halfway up. I'm thinking either mudpuppy or walleye. Other than that, no nibbles...didn't even mark any fish.

sorry about the bad luck. Sounds like you might have had a walleye for a smallie by the depth that you were fishing.

Went out this morning by the open water. Only 8 inches of ice. The bites were really light Lots of fish jumping in the open water. Some crazy snomobilers decided to fly over the open water. What a sight!

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
