A guy went threw the other day i guess. My buddy said there was fishable ice all around him. But a guy walked out in almost the same tracks and went threw. I guess there is some open water on the north side also. so be careful.

Fished on Saturday and there was a good 15 inches of strong ice. There are 2 open areas from springs on the North side, so watch out for those. You actually walk in between them (Maybe 30 yards between them).

Buddy got a 21" 4.7 pounder (digital scale someone had) who went back after some unsuccessful attempts at some cell phone pictures. Taught me a lesson to always bring a camera. I guess they stocked it last Friday but it sounds like those were all pretty much taken that night. People on Saturday were bragging about how they slaughtered them. I wish they had better signage about the 3 fish with one over 16" limit.

I got checked there last time. The dnr said they have really picked up patrol on fosters this year. Wich was good to hear. The way he sounded the have had very few issues on that lake this year. To be honest I was shocked to hear that. Cause three years a go I saw a guy get caught being over limit. Plus about 10-12 people booggied off the ice while he was getting ticketed. I just figured they where over limit also or lacked license cause they made it up that hill in record time.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
