It might be tough to find a room or cabin this close to the weekend, but there are a few around. I am going up and staying at Lake Road Lodge. It is a pretty cheap way to go up there, we will be there Friday night and Saturday night and heading back Sunday morning to hit a couple little lakes on the way back. Black F-150. If you see us in the HSO or Ice Leaders hats, say hello. We are planning to fish out off of Adrians road in 28-34 fow depending on the reports we hear from locals upon arrival.

Nope, wasn't at cool cats, I was harvesting parts for a car from my dad's place. I did stop and fish with my buddy and my son on the way to my dad's though. I really wanted to make it, but couldn't. We put on the baby fmer get together a week before cool cats.

mnhunter, the hats are pretty sweet.

polarsusd81, let us know how you do... I make my way up to Adrians to hit it hard with my portable next Thursday - Monday. I am hoping the progression back to the river is on and I don't have to really head too far out.

Muc, here is my report.

We fished in 25-26 fow from the top of the ice from 11 am to 7 pm Friday and 6:30 am to 7:30 pm on Saturday.

Friday was really slow from 11 to 2:30. At 2:30 the fish moved in and we got sauger after sauger after sauger, and then a lone walter, and more sauger. We ended up with 4 walleye and 6 sauger we kept on Friday. They were going on pink teardrop jigs for the majority of the fish that day.

Saturday we got out early, but the barometer fell hard over night and the wind was howling. The morning bite was a lot slower than our neighbors had Friday morning. The fish moved through all day, but were loners. Not much for schooling, until the afternoon. Then the saugers came in heavy again, and I caught a ton on a buckshot rattle spoon tipped with a shiner head. I caught all but two that came through on the vex. Probably 20-25 from 3-6. Most were small, but there were a couple 13s that came through.

Overall, it was a great time and we will do the same setup next year. I might try to post up a couple pics tomorrow.

We were fishing just past Pine Island in 25 ish fow. If you haven't been up there before, you are in for a treat. We drove out on Adrian's Road and just followed that up to the food shack on the ice and hung a right. Pretty much all along that area from 22 down to 27 fow were producing while we were up there. If the weather stays consistant, you will find plenty of fish this weekend. Let us know how you did when you get back.

If you don't get on them one day, the next day, it might not be a bad idea to head out a little deeper. Some of the guys in our group also went out to 33 fow and did pretty well in the morning. They got into a lot more sauger in the morning than we did, but with as cold as it was, we didn't feel it was worth the hassle to go out and set up the porty when we had a rented day house warm and waiting for us. We caught nothing but eyes early in the morning in our house up there.

Yeah LOW is always a blast. I got a 30 incher on my wall from last year over off gull rock. I'm hoping I don't get a bigger one. They're spendy.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
