We rec'd 9 inches last Saturday and 4-1/2 inches yesterday. Total accumulation in the last week is 13-14". No snow on the ground prior to last Saturday, Feb 24th. Todays winds are directly out of the north at 15-18. We have our plow trucks out - but it is an uphill battle keeping the roads open. If you have access to a wheeler or snowmobile- you're going to have much more success out there. Stop in or call for more up to date conditions. The weather advisory ends today at 6:00pm.

Good to hear you guys are hard at work keeping the roads open for us fisher people. We're heading up to Red either sunday or monday, and I'll be stopping in at Winnie to try my luck with the perch on the way home either tues. or weds. High Banks, is there any chance a guy could get a small road plowed so I don't have to fight to get the wheel house situated before we hit it with the portables and the wheeler? Is there a fee? We were up there the week before the 'eyes closed and did fairly well. I was the one who made you go back in for brochures and a coffee mug when you were getting ready to head to town. How's the perch been going? How far do you have to go out? Any reply is appreciated. Thanks.

I'm glad to hear you didn't get pounded like we did down here. Ive got 27 inches in my yard in less than a week so the 13 to 14 inches sounds pretty good.

I was able to travel on the lakes down here up until last night so hopefully it will be ok next weekend up your way.

Thanks for the report.

Give us a call when you are ready to head to Winnie - we can see what we can work out for you with a road, etc. We pulled our day-use houses off the ice on Wednesday. Most guys the last day or so have been up against this pressure system - so the bite has been tougher. Some perch still coming in though, shallower seems better, using fatheads.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
