Lots of walleyes being caught in this area. Babler's road was fine. Some water and slush on top, very easy to get around with 4 x 4. We left on Sunday morning. Lots of ice left.

Hey Moneyback2, thanks for the update! We we're still wondering on the water and slush thing going on the ice up there!! Was the ice getting pretty thin on shore? Sure don't want to get caught up in any water over the running-boards....if ya know what I mean!?...Were hoping for 1 more weekend, don't think that might be possible tho!?? Someone will have to keep me posted!!! Please!!?? Thanks in advance!!

Gator.

There was no water by shore on Sunday morning. Babler uses long rubber conveyor belts to drive on and that seems to keep the shore from melting. Shore was in really good shape on Sunday morning. Thanks for the Bison comment.

Hey Moneyback2, we continued to pound em sunday and monday, got pretty lost in the fog on sunday right after we talked to you guys on your way out, fished a couple other spots and finally on dumb luck found our way back to the honey hole! Wound up with lots of walleyes and even hit a 19" sauger! Sarah decided to try and out do me on monday and got a 39" pike out of that corner hole of where the red fishhouse was from your party! Not as fat as the hog i caught but still very nice. Dissapointed we never did get that elusive eel pout but what can you do. it was an awesome trip, a 35" northern, a 39" lots of walleyes and saugers caught consistently all day long and good company. It was fun fishing with you guys! I can also second the good ice condition, the shore was still looking very good on monday afternoon at about 4:30 when we pulled off the lake, the beach there was a little soft but no water and everything was still looking good for driving.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
