My friend Dave invited me to an assume bite.He found fish Sunday and Thursday on a shoreline point. Jig and minnow 9 to 12 foot with a minnoow. I couldnt hook em but between Jeff and Dave within a 1.5 hours boated our limit. we quit after two and one half after boating 30 plus. all were between 17 and 21. It was assume thanks Dave. Also its the first time for the three of us that we broke ice to get on the Lake.

We fished the river Sat. and picked up 10 walleyes...3 nice ones, 16-17-20 and the rest were little guys. We also got 1/2 dozen pike, from a couple, up to about 10 pounds. We couldn't get a thing on artificals, not even tipped. A plain hook and minnow accounted for everything we caught.

It was cold! 19 degrees with a wind and the rod tips would ice right up. Everything else was pretty warm, but the hands took a beating and when they decided to quit working properly, we left. Last open water trip...time for the ice to come now.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
