I was up with my family, i went off my point and i had a couple of follows, but didnt land anything, then i had one on off my dock! it got off as i tried to jump on the water to grab it becasue i didnt have my net. it was about a 35 inch, but the west end is where you want to be from what i have been hearing.

I was out Saturday morning on the west side for a short 3 hours before we had to check out of the cabin and get back to the wives. 10 mintes in I had a nice one side swipe my manta and miss, later we had one roll on a top raider and miss and another bump on a bucktail that didnt work out.

Was out today in and around Norwegian Bay on the west end. Three follows but no takers. Lots of pike and a bonus walleye, tho. We were using small lures most of the time.

I didnt get out as much as I would have liked to. Ended up fishing muskies for a few hours on saturday morning. Had one lazy follow and had one slap at a jackpot but missed. Both real nice fish. You guys seeing anything on the rocks yet? Both fish i saw were in the weeds and shallow.

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet!

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.

      Anybody walking out yet? Preferably would like to know Glenwood side..

      Just want to put this out early... hoping to keep up on the ice conditions along the north shore of superior from Duluth N. 2 1/2 hr drive is a bit far to check ice. Thanks for all the help from people in the area.
