We have had a couple of icy mornings but river is wide open as of 6:30 AM Wed. Was out Sun. & Mon. and surface temp. was 34-36 depending on time of day. Had good sun yesterday and it even thawed the bays some. Forecast is for highs of 40 for a couple of days. But the lows that are in the 10's & lower 20's could skim the river anytime.

The bite on Sun. & Mon. was off a bit. Fish were hiting strong with only a couple tail-suckers but still caught most on the stinger hook. They seem to want a very steady presentation. Drop to the bottom, lift 2" and hold..... drop to bottom, lift 2" and hold... Shouldn't be a problem doing a 20-30 fish day if your decent with a jig.

Afraid you're on your own from here. Gotta go meet my new grand-daughter. Sure it will be hard water by my return and that's OK to. Change gear and keep fishin!!!!!!!

Thanks Boar. She's 2 months now & suprised that "Grandma" didn't show you pictures when you were here!

River has light skim this morning but is moving and opening up as we speak. Forecast is for 50 on Sun! I may have to re-rig the boat when we get back.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
