Well was out for one last evening of walleye fishing and it was a night that shall be remembered for awhile..

The owner of WriteOutdoors and myself were on Cass Lake and the other group of 4 fisherman where on Pike Bay. I set-up the group on Pike Bay in 14 feet of water and they were using Spot tails and Waxies. They caught 13 walleyes with the biggest being 19" and many, many perch...

We went over to Cass and set-up in 17 feet of water on a inside corner and caught 4 Keeper perch and 17 walleyes. A lot of 12-14 inchers and a few a bit bigger. All that action was in 2.5 hours of fishing.

The perch were hitting the shinners on Northland's Eyedroppers and the Walleyes liked the Buckshot rattle spoon tipped with the head of a FATHEAD...

The best news is WE GOT SOME SNOW!!!!!!!!!!! About time...

Around 8-12 inches in the Bemidji area.. Cass seemed to get around the same amount...

Thanks for the report Beef, sounds like fishing was pretty good.

Real happy to hear you finally got some snow, not wishing you any bad but I hope the area gets hit a few more times like this one before spring. The area really needs the precip. I was beginning to think my boat would not see the light of day in 2007!

THANKS for the great time fishing Bryan! We caught a mess in what were some of the toughest weather conditions one could ask to face! I have the photos posted on my website and you and I need to connect Tuesday night to record the latest WriteOutdoors podcast! I'm teaching a class at Joe's that night so if we can talk late that's cool with me!

Yeah we sure can use some more snow... The reports as of this morning are from anywhere from 6-14 inches.. Have to love the weather man...

Let's start some guessing-- BY FRIDAY AT 6:00p.m.

Beef= I think we will get 11" total from now until then..

Anyone else have any guesses???

I'll throw my guess in at 9". I'm hope I'm shy by about 7" as we could sure use the moisture. Nice thing about snow this time of year is that it's pretty wet.

Beef, it looks like you had a good time on the lake over the weekend! Nice fish. I went up to LOW and caught about 20 over the weekend, with the biggest at 19". Plus, one tulibee . . .

I'll guess 7", but hoping for more.

I'm looking at a Lund 2025 right now - going to be a little harder to get in and out of the area lakes than my Alumacraft 165 especially with the way things are now...

Ok--so how much snow did you guys end up with? I always look but the TV news never shows the totals for out state mad.gif especially up north unless its really news worthy. Where I live in south central mn. we had 12-14". Moved snow 3 times to keep ahead of it! smirk.gif

At the Beef Weather Service Station In Bemidji, I had officially 6.5 inches of snow.... The thing that surprised me the most is how high snow drifts can go... I spent a good three hours plowing them down....

Hoping to hit the lake today to see what kind of shape the lakes are in for driving around in a truck.... I have a feeling I could still get where I want, but the drifts will be the factor of if I get there or not....

This snow wasn't as easy to measure as the first. When I went out Friday morning I could barely get out the door - the snow was up to my waist. However, it hadn't snowed much that night - the drifts were due to the wind. Had to plow again Saturday, again primarily due to the wind. I'd say 8" here. Would've liked more snow and less wind.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?

      How much ice??????
