Anyone ever hike in on those trails off of Highway 5, and if so...Have you caught anything or is am I imagining that there might be fish in there?

I tried that lake once many years ago and found tons of nice size gills. They were wormy though....don't know if things have cleared up since, but you should keep an eye out while cleaning any fish.

I used to live next to the park there. That lake has had times when there were sunfish in it but it's been years since I've seen it. It used to be every 5 yuears or so they would boom and you would see tons of people fishing it for the gills. I tried it a few years ago with no success. Just saw minnows in the lake.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
