We checked out the ponderosa yesterday afternoon and there was open water along the East bank and by the dam. There were quit a few sled tracks going on the lake though. Are you the Big Slab that has the post on the South Central forum? If you are we fished Shields Sat. and caught 8"+ perch almost continously for 3 hours. Only left to watch the game. My son and I want to get back there soon. We could hook up if you are interested? We have all the toys, but put them away and just site fished down a third hole it was a blast! If you want e-mail me at sommerfieldr@aol.com

Big Slab...I would not trust the lake yet for driving so walking or a sled is in order to getting around. The high banks will give up fish now and there is probably plenty if ice in that area to be safe. The long stairway is another area to look for the fish right now...facing the stairs, fish to the right almost up to the first house. Look for deeper water wherever you are out there.

CrappieTom, are the high banks the shore across from the guy with the airplanes? If so where from there are the long stairs? My grandfather used to have a cabbin out there so i am fairly familiar with the lake but has been a few years since i've been on it. Also is there any where to get on the ice by the airplane guy or do i have to walk from the ponderosa? Thanks for any help!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
