What's the word on Madison? I have only been able to get out there once in the evening and didn't have any luck. Is the ice good all through the narrows?

I watched a guy drive his car through the narrows in the dark and he made it through and back...I probably wouldn't have tried it.

My buddy was out there the other night and he got skunked. He said there was 12 inches or better but I would always be careful around the narrows. Anyone been doing anything there lately?

Now I know why no one responded to my Madison Lake questions - nothing to talk about. At least not up and around the narrows (aka Dead Sea). I guess Grass Island is the place to be.

Fished Frances, German and Eagle today with little luck. Little panfish all over in weeds 7-8 ft - no size at all though a nothern or two may flag your tip-up. German in 30 ft was very quiet, scattered houses everywhere on the lake - only one little perch for our efforts. Run to Eagle and found out why they call Eagle Lake a town, the population on the lake may have had a higher population of 18-75 yr old men enjoying Minnesota and all of its wonders - including the opportunity to drive on water. I must admit between 3 of us we did reel in 5 eyes and a nothern though neither of my lines seemed to produce.

Where they biting? Come on now, I'll let you know what I know if you fill me in your luck or lack thereof. Being a well informed fisherman typically leads to becoming a "lucky" fisherman - which is a title I wouldn't mind wearing.

GO VIKES!

I went out to the narrows this morning. Nothing happening. Skunked again.

Funny fishmanJake I hit all those same lakes with exactly the same luck. I was fishing with a dushbag. I got the low down on Lura (may have to try it in the bitter cold this weekend since were not going to waubay). It does look like it is going to get nasty.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
