jnam 88,
I still haven't been able to get out on the croix yet.Mille Lacs has been to hot to pass up yet!!Some of the best ice fishing is after they pull houses off at the end of the month and into march before ice gets bad!!
I'll keep in touch in the next couple of weeks!
GOOD LUCK!

Man the bite on Mille sounds too good to be true! A co-worker was up there on Saturday and they got 2 perch and a pout out of Flagship! Sounds like my luck!
Another co-worker was on the Croix across from Bayport and got 1 11.5" slab and 1 dink. He said they'd come up and look then leave!
Don't wait to fish the Croix, there are plenty of shacks out of the Wisconsin side across from Bayport. Go to Hudson take a left (West) at Tom Thumb then a right (I think?) at the power transformers and go down to the river. people are driving but not this guy I'm chicken grin.gif I'd walk or take the wheeler it's about 1/2-3/4 mile North of the access. Go to the shacks and fish! The community spots always seem to kick out fish.

Later,

Ferny.

Its always a good time to go fishing!Alot of guys on the ice will help you out and point you in the direction,but when they have to pull shacks off the ice there is a lot less people fishing.This helps in two ways there are sunkin trees in some deep areas and the guys who knows this put there perm. shack right on top of these spots.When all the shacks are off it's first come first serve!Of coarse when getting to the fish is more work this eliminates 80% of the people.Last year I spent many 40 to 50 degree days in march fishing with no one in sight!If you are looking for a good walleye bite go to Mille Lacs on the north side out of Red Door and fish the edge of flats in 26-30 feet with fatheads on a red glow jigs with slip bobbers from 3pm-10am and get ready for action!My friends and I have been hitting this for the last 12 days and have been averaging 20-30 walleys a night most being to big for the slot(14-18"),but we usually get 3-6 in the slot.It's a good time to catch those 20"plus fish on the ice!!
The season ends on the 17th so don't miss out!If you want info I'll be checking the forum!
Keep fishing!!
You learn the most by being on the ice!!

Keep fishing!

Crappie getter, sound like you are doing well up on Mille Lacs. I was there on Saturday, out fo Red Door early, till 10:30, then had to mmet up with someone on the south end. It stank, got 1 22 incher, a pair of pout, and two big perch in all of our moving. Should have stuck it out on the North end. I was thinking about heading up on Saturday. My e-mail is drston@hotmail.com Let me know if I head up, where to find you..... Dan
