Has anyone been having any luck since this cold weather came through? And also just wondering how much ice is out there, last weekend there was about 10".

Thanks OTTERMAN

Checked the ice depths out from Golden Eagle North to about half way to Squaw Point on Thursday. 12 to 13 inches of ice. Drove the pickup out on Friday to put the house out there.

Fished Saturday and Sunday. About 13 to 14 inches of ice. Not a nibble during the day.

Saturday evening, about 6:30 to 7:30, we had about 15 hits. Pulled up 6, 5 of them were keepers (13 - 14 inches).

Sunday evening, about 5:15 pm, my 6 year old son and I were pulling up the lines so I could head back to the Cities for work Monday morning. As I went to grab the forth line I said, "Where is the bobber?" I let the fish take quite a bit of line, but nothing when I tried to set the hook. We put one of his lines back in. I had another chance, but again nothing. We waited another 5 minutes and his bobber went down. I told him to give it enough line and then set the hook when the line was tight. He caught a 10 inch walleye, his first walleye ever. We took a picture and put it back. A few minutes later my bobber went down, a 14 inch walleye. As I was trying to put another shiner on, his line went down again. Another 14 inch walleye. Then the lines went dead and we packed it up at 6:15.

It was fun watching him catch the fish. I think I have him hooked on this ice fishing stuff!!!!!

Good luck fishing.
