CALVINIST-

We were up there over New Years and caught some brutes. We talked to a guy who had a cabin on the lake and he said he fished more toward the little island straight out from the access and there are also some people who fish the weeds in the channel between the two basins! Not sure what depth, but I believe there is a little break when you work your way toward the island from where you were fishing! If you can't find them in these two places, I wouldn't be afraid to try the deeper water again. Before today, the weather hasn't done anything different then it does in January! Let us know how you do!

The person you talked to was probably Don. In the channel it only gets about 10ft in the middle. His buddies spear in the channel. Most northerns in the lake would fit between the forks in the spear. lol I'm going up the first week of April for some cabin building/fishing.

What about the dead heat of summer? I've done okay, but haven't found the behemoths I'm targeting for CPR. Any depth tips? My search lures lose their effectiveness in deep water, maybe that was my problem. I have some ideas of new places I'd like to try. I wish my sonar was a little newer too for marking fish.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
