Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.

drove around the lake last night, the open spot has moved east back to halvorson pt. and extends west/ northwest and has gotten much bigger.  numerous small spots opened up west of peters resort to baycrest. I would say from the beach to a little before halvorson pt. over to the dnr landing and west to bottle bay should be good to go, that's where the majority of houses are out.

Fishing was tough. No eyes in morning by beach. No panfish by break over at DNR landing. Moved up and down that whole break....

Coming to fish over new years.....can't wait.

Any updates on the Ice?  I assume with the weather it will be all shored up by this weekend?

I would be very careful on the south side and towards the high school. A car went down yesterday. Just because it has been cold does not mean the whole lake is safe! Good Luck!

The car went down in the spot I was talking about in earlier post.  Out by halvorson pt. and towards the middle of the lake, it was open last thurs afternoon and locked up by sat morning. This is not the year to be joyriding out there. Lots of trucks on the lake but as walleyeman said the south side and towards the high school is sketchy.

Any recommendations for depth and/or times for the walleye action on waska?  Any jig colors/bait working better?  Gotta try out the new secret lures:)

Any updates in ice conditions?  Wondering if spots near the middle of lake that froze late are locked up good.

I fished Thursday Dec. 28 with 15-16" of good ice in front of DNR and Hunts

we were out Friday night through yesterday fishing for walleyes only got a couple a day to bite probably due to the cold snap.  Moved out near Halverson point and there was well over 12" of ice.

There seems to be a break/heave out past halverson point is this where it was still open a couple weeks ago?  I stayed a good 1/2 mile away from it but could see it.

With the wind yesterday the ice was cracking like crazy.....had a very loud crack happen and the whole ice shifted like 2-4inches felt like a earthquake and i bailed out the door.....1st time that had ever happened to me i had to go in and wipe my behind.

Kind of a late report, but I fished Friday afternoon, and the bite was good.  Perch colored 1/16 oz buckshot spoon iced a few crappies between 3-4 pm, and from 4-6:45 I caught 10 walleyes releasing 8.  most were the cookie cutter 15-16" fatties that have been prevalent for the last 2 years.   12" of ice, 16' of water, edge of a weedline, glow rattle spoon.  Pretty standard minnewaska pattern.

      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.
    • smurfy
      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.

      Gents, Anyone been to OT lately that could comment on ease of ice travel. Snow depth, drifts and ice.  Would traveling nearly anywhere be acceptable with exception to rivers/creeks?
    • PRO-V
      Went by yesterday. Just a pile of steel sheeting and ashes. Sad.
