where you thinking of going, she's a big lake.

last sunday on the east side, there was over 24" of ice. most i've talked to are finding the perch on the muddy flats. i was seeing them in the 25' FOW.

two weeks ago, i went home with 3, last weekend, i took 5 but saw alot more on the camera. the fishing is only going to get better.

drill some holes and move around until you find them. if you don't see anything in 30-45 minutes try another spot.

i can't imagine 1 week of nice weather has hurt the ice, but i'd call ahead just to be sure..

I would head up. Ice is fine, but the shore line could possibley become and issue next weekend if 50 deg. days keeping rolling around. I think the day time temp is not the major issue, but we need cold nights.

I am sure this weekend is going to be a great weekend to head up.

Good luck.

We were up last Saturday 3-8-08 outside of Appledorns. Fished about 2 1/2 hrs and saw nothing. Ice is at least 36" thick. Bottomed my Jiffy 10" auger out and barley got thru. Moved North around 2:30. Went out in front of Hunter's Point. 28' of water west side of south 2 mile. Fished 3 hrs. Saw 1 walleye and two very small perch. Caught nothing. Also bottomed Jiffy 10" auger out. Bring extension. Good Luck!

this weekend is the ice roads ice fishing clinic, the guys are running out of hunters point. not sure how many people or where they're fishing, but that could put alot of traffic on some parts of the lake..
