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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
