Went out of Breezy Point yesterday morning. Measured 13" of ice. 

 

Thanks for the heads up. After this next cold week of below temps I may have to give it a try next weekend.

Any updates on ice conditions, ridges, snow depth?  I haven't been up since before Christmas, will be heading out this weekend.  I'm planning on getting my wheelhouse out, would prefer to pull it with the pickup...hopefully that's possible now with the cold weather recently.

Yup, guys pulling large wheelhouses all over now. I've had 15-16" ice and snow depth isn't an issue

Thanks for the report will be up Sat & Sun with a sled and porty. Any bare ice spots, or can I leave the cleats at home?

Just heard some guy died going through the ice on a sled in Wis, always makes you think twice about the ice. :(

Going to be another cold weekend.

Definitely leave the cleats at home. Lakes are blanketed with several inches

Great thanks. Any word on the ice ridges off either side of Gooseberry that happen most years?

Slow fishing for us. Caught a few small crappies and sunfish out of Breezy point access. Heard of a few walleyes being caught but nothing great. Spent more time snowmobiling this year then fishing so not much to report. Used the truck to pull wheel house off lake so plenty of ice now.

Thanks!  Have you seen any ice ridges by Gooseberry or Lincoln's Point?

Nothing off the north or west side of Gooseberry. I haven't seen the other side yet

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
