I'm heading up to long point and was wonderin how they have been doing around there. Anybody know how much water is on the ice. We are taking our 2 wheel drive because we dont own a 4 wheel drive. Any tips and advice would be appreciated.

I was there last monday, we had poor fishing but I guess it had been good before that. We were in 35 feet of water. I heard someone in 28 ft. did ok. There was no water on the ice and very little snow. There are a few pressure ridges but should be no problem for you to get to were you want to fish with a two wheel drive vehicle. there were cars out on the lake. Good Luck

child23; We were at LP last Tues. started in 32' nothing, moved into 28' and filled out with walleye, returned several including two 22"ers. Wed. a couple of friends were up and fished 33', kept 6 walleye and filled the rest of the limit with sauger, never know where they may be. Good luck.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
