3/1 Report

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!

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
