Just wondering how the ice was on this little lake... My buddy has a cabin on it and we are going to be heading up there Thursday, just want to make sure that we are going to have some fishable ice... Any reports on the fishing?? Any help is appreciated

I was on fleming wednesday, and both lakes are simular. there was about 9 to 10 inches of good solid ice. I used by ATV to pull my portable around. there was a full size pickup out on the ice, I don't think it was a good idea. you should have loads of ice to fish on, and its going to be well below zero a few more days. -10 at 1:30 in the afternoon.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
