I headed over to clearwater lake on saturday. I had my fiance and her 2 younger brothers (who had been deprived of fishing their entire lives) so I basically did more babysitting than fishing. Only managed 1 bass and 1 pike, but had many strikes and follows...observed LOT'S of fish as well. It was my very first time on the lake, liked it alot. I think I'll hit it on my own in the fall to learn it alot better.

JBMasterAngler were you the over on the north side of the island near the fifty foot hole? I think I may have saw you out there. Were the two boys practicing their casting?

We didn't have that much luck over there. We did get a couple eyes on the east side and had a nicer one on that broke the line. We also saw quite a few fish caught that morning.

We were on the NW side of the island to start, yes. We were in a 16 ft white/maroon grumman with a 30 HP suzuki. Not my boat, the kids' grandpa's. And yes, they need more practice casting...had couple close calls with my ears that day. Were you one of the many boats trolling/drifting in that area? How'd you do?

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
