Ha ha - You guys can all breathe again.

Nasty weather out there this weekend! Rain, Sleet, lots of wind, and now finally some snow.

Made it out yesterday and got one pike about 24 inches while my partner in crime / guide got two in the low to mid twenty inch range as well. Saw lots of perch, bluegill, and also a few really nice bass.

All in all it was a GREAT two days. Learned a few new spots and made a great freindship.

Nice fish! My lovely wife pulled out a 12 1/2 pounder (northern) on a tip-up 20 yards from my spear hole not far from you (Turtle lake) this past weekend. The next day "Big Ed" slid into my hole and I choked. Now I've got nine months to relive that sorry moment until next season! I've enjoyed reading your posts as well as B & S's.

The wife got her fish the 23rd, my last day of spearing was the 24th, and her brother is a Conservation Officer so we're very legal! (He's the one who hooked me on spearing.) Metro MDAA banquet is March 10th at the Champlin Legion if you are interested...

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      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.
