Yes, as long as they do not have a motor. and I do not know for sure if you are supposed to go all the way to Green because of the sanctuary. I have been up there a couple of times . We just stop at the sanctuary sign that is in the water and turn around.

sheephead 24 ,Games lake or nest lake Inlets or outlets,full of northerns and if you put on waders at games and walk down,its not deep you see walleye.

At nest inlet go past the bass up creek from bridge [Northwest inlet and walleyes start to show in their as well as northern.

Had to quit fishing both these for pannies as large fish have moved in and you just cannot keep them off line.

Should be one of better openers in years.

Also if you travel to Sakariason Lake,Swift -Kandi line road ,about 3 miles south of Suburg Supper club,ask Bootsie I did 9 Nortern in 9 casts opener afternoon 2 years ago.It was so windy we didnt put our boats in,tryed sloughs and backwaters everywhere,this spot was really good.

Also West Norway lake in waders with raps etc. is very good just troddin along .but this has been mostly for walleye before sunup.

I looked on a map, I didnt see sakariason lake, but I saw Sunburg and West Sunburg lake on the county line 2 or 3 miles south of Sunburg, is this the same lake you are talking about? thanks

sheephead24,I think east and west are the ones on tar,this lake is on both sides of gravel west of those two and I think that there is one more west before Monson.

So many locals call this one Sakariason,a freind has a hunting trailer out on it.

You can also put small to medium boats on it through season.

Just go 2 to 3 miles south from that supper club and I am sure you will find it.

we are going to try it Saturday afternoon about 3:00.

Good luck

I would try foot and willmar lake anywhere you have moving water. the northern population is pretty good out there with a chance of getting a monster.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
