I was up there last night from about 2:30 till 5:30. I had fish on the vexi the entire time, except for the last half hour. Getting them to bite was a different story. I used just about everything in my tackle box and 1 little perch and 2 fish on, probably crappies, that got off, before I could see them. Lots of fish would chase my bait 3-5' off the bottom, then sit there and look at it, before dropping back down to the bottom. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!!! I'm sure this cold front has them in a funk.

Brian, We were out on Bowstring yesterday and managed to do pretty good. Had to move around and especially get away from the crowd. Trout opener is coming up. Looks like we'll have plenty of ice this year.

Did you drive out on the ice in a truck?

I was out this weekend and we drove on. The snow is now to the point where it is starting to get tough to break new trails on the lake. It's OK yet but anymore snow and driving on may be limited to the "roads" out there now. The fishing was pretty good but we fished off all by ourselves. The "community" spot had no fish at all in that area when we fished it. Good luck if you go!!

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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!
