Some buddies and I did pretty good up there on walleyes this weekend. Biggest was 25", and the average was 13-15". So, nothing huge, but deffinately biting. Did the best where water was shallow then broke to about 20 ft and flattened out. Fished at 18-19 ft of water. They bit on everything, leeches, shiners, dead shiners, plastics. The best set-up being 6ft lindy, no spinner, bare hook and silver shiner, and trolling at .8-1.25 miles per hour, gps worked great. Don't be afraid to use 4 or 5 inch shiners, as the eyes were aggressive, just feed 10 feet of line out at the strike. Biggest however was on jig and leech.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
