Nobody out there to give you a report....even on weekends only a couple groups and they may not be on this Forum...I've been out to similar sized lakes in same area...last Sunday drove out in my SUV 18" of good ice but with this rain we had last night and still today they are a messy....I'll probably be walking out tomorrow...if I go.

 

I have been surprised with the lack of guys out chasing crappies...I've done better since end of Feb up till now than I did the entire season before that point...and best is yet to come IMO.

Bison was out there two days ago had a good 15-18 inches. Access was heaved as it normally is this time of year. I took my wheeler and trailer and got over it with no problem.

I'm also really surprised about the lack of fishermen out there chasing panfish.  Not sure why but there's been barely anyone out even when I drive around looking at lakes.  Maybe the really warm spell a few weeks back scared a lot of people away??

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
