Hey everyone- I'm going up with the family and wondering if there is a certain depth, jig size/color, and/or spot that will be producing. First time up, and I am very excited. We are staying at Borderview Lodge. From Borderview, should we head towards the lake or down river?

Hi Scott,

I just got back from 3 days of wind, wind and cold wind. The good news fish are biting pretty good. I would start out on the lake and try about 18 feet with shiners, jig color was not important. The river has some fish in it but I think its only going to get better in the next few weeks. We pulled the Sportcraft for the season. It was a good year. Good luck to your group! Are you still in the business?

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
