Iwas wonderin the same thing, cause I'm headin up their from the 18th-22. wdgold how did you do? We'er headin up for a family thing and stayin on Cross. I'm the only serious fisherman outta the bunch, but they always want to go out. And they expect me to find the fish for them! I've been on these lakes alot at a buddies cabin, but we usually just drink all day and night. Or maybe some of you local guys could steer me in the right direction? I'm a very respectful fisherman and I'm not lookin for anything to specific, just what lakes and depths to be searchin. I love chasin 'eyes, but panfish info would be great to. Thanx.

P.s. I just broke my hand and got a cast up to my elbow. Hopefully they are bitin on a jiggin pattern, cause that is about all I'll be able to do!

I am also with you guys, will be staying on upper whitefish this weekend. Can any one help us? I am looking for some general walleye tips, specifically depth and structure. I usually don't have a problem with the Bass and Pike, but those Walleyes are tough. In the past I have caught them mostly right at sunset and after dark. Just wondering if daytime walleye fishing will be worth my time.

One of our guides was up there this a.m. and did fairly well. He said they ended up keeping 9 walleyes and caught quite a few northerns. I have been on Gull about everyday, so I didn't even ask where or what depth. I am 99% ceratin he was rigging with redtails. If I had to guess, I would say Upper in 18-22 feet.

Good luck,

Walleyedan

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
