It's been just over 2 weeks since I was on 16 but we did pretty well, steady action all day, some nice sized saugers, some perch mixed in, and walleyes right up to the slot but nothing in the slot on that trip. Jigging spoons and shiners under a deadstick. I was pretty satisfied with our catch. Going back in 2 weeks, hopefully you guys will have some good info to report when you get back.

We were up on 16 Sat 3/1 and Sun 3/2 (a.m.). To sum it up Saturday - Slow, Sunday - Slower in 27.5 feet. Friday 2/29 was a better day at Arnesen's Reef but no size and majority was perch with some eyes and saugers. Fish at 16 were bigger but fewer to be found and the weather Sunday didn't help matters.

I left the lake from 16 mile on Monday morning. The Road was blown shut out by 16 mile. We able able to get two wheeled houses off by driving on the east side of the road for 1 1/2 mile, then the road was OK to drive on. We were off the lake by 10:00 am. Looked the plows were just about to head out onto the lake when we were leaving. FIshing was slow Saturday and Sunday.

Moneyback2,

We were out to 16 mile on sat and then on sun, When we were leaving on sun around 4:30 pm we got the sub. stuck about 100 yrds. from the road. Were u guys the ones with the black lodge sleeper, and the white p/u that was stuck? Thank god for the driver from arenson's to give a hand. We only got 6 walleye,s & 6 sauger, the walleye were good size, 2-18, 2-17, 2-16, some 14" sauger, a lot of small (8")sauger. When we left the main road back was 3/4 drifted shut.

No, we were in 2 blue Fords with Crew cabs. Tough going out there. We were just glad to get off the lake on Monday morning.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
