Was in the angle at Flag Island over the weekend. Areas with current are ice free with the rest usable by iceboat and a fast moving snowmobile only. Lots of waterfowl staged up heading north, Fun.

Gordon, were you in the ice boat, or the fast moving snowmobile? smile.gif

Did you do much exploring from Flag to check out further ice/water conditions? The webcam only shows so much. Antsy time of the year for some of us....

Hey Gordon, were you up at Flag Island Resort? I think we met this winter when you were up with your buddies doing the "Run and Gun" icefishing. Hope to see you up there this summer - maybe we can go after some smallies sometime. Ron

Hemlock,

The only extended exploring we did was to the southeast. The larger parts of the lake had better ice. The ice was still about 20 to 24 inches thick but in poor condition. Fishing was good.

Ron,

Yep, that was me! We stayed in your cabin during the filming of the show, nice place. We'll definetely have to chase some smallies, I love em! Probably see you a bunch on Flag!

GF

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
