I dropped a pontoon in there last week. It is still pretty low, but you can get in. You just need to keep it trimmed up while going out. Gull and Round are the only lakes that are at normal levels, the rest are just a little better than last fall. Hopefully we get a little rain this summer. Its tough to start the year at low levels.

I live on the lake and cant get my boat out there. they dredged the landing but still not deep enough for my 19' runabout. the motor hole wasnt even deep enough to get the rollers wet on the trailer. luckily was able to get out in front of my house-dont know about getting it out though!

Does any of the resorts have a deep enough access that we could use? I'm thinking the resort on the SW bay might work if the landing is too shallow? I guess it could be worse - I could have a cabin on Sandbar Lake instead.

Has anyone fished this lake so far this year for crappies or walters?

Well, I hit the lake tonight. The access is VERY shallow, as there is about a foot of water at the shallowest point. Good thing the water is warming up so you can get out of the boat and not freeze your butt off.

Got two walleyes on the south end, using leeches.

I did see a Fishing Minnesota sticker on a Ford pickup at the access. Meat-Run, was that you?

Is anyone else fishing this lake?

yeah, picking up 2 is not bad for this lake. was out till 10:00 and caught 2 but the lightning scared us off. I got my big boat in at cozy bay but is still shallow. probally end up leaving it out there as too much work going in and out. If you see me I'm in the maroon/white 19' four winns cruiser. otherwise it will be on the lift near cozy bay. maybe i'll see you out there as I am out there 2-5 nights a week

Icicle,

No sorry it wasn't me. I was thinking about getting a FM sticker though. I'm more curious about the water levels for a particular reason, BASS opener. Guys thanks for all the help and posting your findings on water levels. I have heard that Edward can be a good lake but because of low water levels I'm going to pick another lake. The access really isn't my concern more than the structure I want to fish.

Later,

I shouldn't have an issue launching a 16 footer, should I? I fear that when I get up there later in June that the water level will be around the same...since rain fall seems to be in short supply lately.

Also, got a map and GPS of the lake...I can kind of figure out where you guys are fishing (or at least get close)...but any suggestions as far as bait/speed/etc.? I'm going to attempt to target walleye. Thanks all in adavance, it is greatly appreciated.

You can put in at Cozy Bay...I helped put in the docks there this year, and we anticipated low water. The owner is a good guy, so ask about where to go. He is always happy to give alittle. Water depth should be good unless the lake completely dries up. Water was low when the docks went in, so the docks went out further. Should be good for the season, if not, we will be back to adjust.

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
