This morning I talked to Westwind and they said that their access is now closed, Hillmans said that they prefer folks not to head out now, and Morts was letting folks walk out this morning but has posted that as of noon they are now also closed. The warm temps the past few days really did a number....now we just have to wait and look forward to some great open water fishing!

Hudec's was the place to be on Fri. and Sat. Two miles out on the ridge provided some fast action. Lots of Crappies and Double the Walleye action. The shore was getting real bad when we left on Sat. We noticed a snowmobile and otter sled submerged in two feet of water just North of Hudecs. We also broke through with my ATV and Trailer close to shore when we missed the hay runway by only a few feet crazy.gif. didn't get wet but it sure gets the heart pounding when it's Dark out. A special thanks to Brian at Hudecs and WallEyellBe for a great last weekend of Slab Pounding !!! See you all on the Open Water smile.gif "Son of Slab" IBOT #305

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
