Well, by the sounds of it, at least you made the rounds and got to experience different lakes and locations. Too bad you couldn't hit one day, one lake, that highlighted the weekend. I just wish I could have an open weekend to get up to the cabin and fish. Cut Foot crappies will start to bite better and Bowstring crappies will always be a hit or miss option. Jumbo sunnies on my lake will pick up too. The way things are lookin', I'll finally get back up in the area the weekends of 3/10 and 3/17.

Been kinda quite on this forum....hoping someone is having fun somewhere, someplace.

I caught about 50 fish (mostly small perch) in the high banks area on winnie. I kept 2 walleyes and half a dozen nice perch...would've been able to cover more ground if it wasn't so windy out

When does the ice fishing come to an end up there? And when usually is total ice out?

Glenn, it's called Lake Paglaroni. grin.gifgrin.gif

Depending on weather, I am planning on hitting URL for crapps during the better weekend day....it's only 1 hour 15 minutes from my place. Otherwise, I'll be at my usual haunts in the area both weekends. I'll let you know for sure later...perhaps we can cross paths.

As far as ice out in the area, end-April is the average. Depends on the amount of rain and amount of wind. I still ice fish right up until I can no longer get on the ice safely from shore. Can't tell you the times I've been out fishing when it's an easy hop to get on the ice in the AM, and then find a 12' area of open water from shore in the PM.....I have found that I cannot walk on water. grin.gif

So I should be good through the month of march then? I'll be sure to bring my rubber raft.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.

      Drove by Grays Bay this morning. The one and only house left has now partially fell thru. Not sure how this one is coming out.
