Red Door said they were closeing theirs 3/15. Went out on the 14th and right front tire dropped through 15 ft. from shore. Had to get pulled out. Stuck to left side, then OK.

Went out to Lower Pantry and did OK, some nice perch, biggest was 13 1/4 inchs. Fishing in 24 to 26 ft.

Went out of Lybeck's this afternoon with pickup. No problems driving with truck and landing seemed to be holding up pretty good - some water in ruts near landing this evening. Caught a few - all on minnow dead stick while jigging with other rod. Confidence in a maintained road was well worth the $10.

Report from last Friday laugh.gif:

We went out of the east side, near the access closest to Doe island. Fished all around the north side of doe, and didn't mark any fish after popping a bunch of holes. So we moved on. I did see a truck off the NE side of Doe that didn't move all day though. He must've been on something, or onto something...

We moved south and east, near Father Hennepin. There were plenty of perch to be had, you just had to hole hop and find the active fish. Waxies didn't get us a bite, and neither did rainbows. The most active fish were in 30-31' feet and were hitting fatheads on glow demons.

Most of the active fish would come 5-10 feet off bottom and strike before I could even get my bait near the bottom. If I didn't get them to rise right away, I moved holes to find more active strikers.

They were decent-sized, with our biggest couple going 12". I only managed one that wasn't a jumbo all day.

We took a wheeler out, and only saw 1 other person doing that, everyone else out there was driving. If the ice would've been another inch thick, I would've had to call it a day because I didn't have an extension with.

Overall, it was a great day to be out, and I ended up with a nice sunburn. How'd everyone else do?

We were out of Lybacks on Sat, marked quite a few but getting them to bite was tough...threw everything we had at them. Finally found some more active fish in 18-19 feet of water, but had to sort through them. Great day to be on the ice, I hope the shoreline holds up!

When did terry's close, I sjould Have looked today as I went by. I drove off Saturday night, every thing was very solid. He sure seemed like it would be open for awhile never asked him how long he thought though.

      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.

      If you really want to challenge yourself, make the "hook" mostly barbless, which is what one of my kids somehow managed to do. Just aim for the toothiest area.....

      What lake? I'm in Moundsview so I like hearing about visibility nearby.  Struggling to find clear water this year. Poor visibility on Forest, Clear, Centerville so far. WBL has good visibility. But I hate spearing on muskie lakes. Plus, WBL doesn't have big pike per surveys.

      The only tying groups I know are here in the Twin Cities, and there are quite a few that gather during the winter months.  I'm not sure of any in the SW near you.
