As far as I know, people are going both dirrections and having luck... get away from the crowds and get to a fresh area and they are finding fish, and many of them. The last spot I was at I was seeing several hundred fish a day, Cats, Sheeep head and walleyes and pike. I still can not get the cats to bite thought or the sheep head. My goal is to find out what stimulates these cats to eat under the ice.

In town, there's public access in Central Park behind the library just off Hwy 2. Just zero in on the old Cathedral spires.

So what do you use (bait/lure) to get these river eyes?

yeah,

move away from the crowds. There are a few good spots upstream from the park. Usually catch them from 5pm-8pm on red glow jigs, or blue in 8-10 feet of water. watch for slush spots on the ice.

I like flash lures, with a tail hooked minnow.

Up-stream from the park, there a a number of rather straight sections of river that are real shallow and not worth driling holes. I own a bit of land on the river east of town on a straight section of about 200 yards. 3 feet of ice and one foot of water on Sunday. frown.gif

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
