Went out lask weekend for a little while but didn't catch anything. I'll probably try it this coming week and work a little harder to try and find 'em.

I'll post a report if I do get out!

How was the ice/snow conditions? Would walking out be a tough go? How about ATV travel? Thanks for the info

angler, did you ever get back to Martin and do any good? I was thinking of hitting it in the morning...just wondering about a good place to start. thanks

Went out but didn't catch anything just a few bites, I've heard its been pretty slow this year so...

If you do end up going out though, my advice would be to get away from the crowds as usual, that's where I find the most fish.

Went out again last night, out from the bridge from 12-4 pm. Managed to catch a few small white crappies that seemed very skinny. Missed a few other bites but nothing that felt big. Probably should have stayed out later but it was extremely cold and windy. Lots of people out there though, didn't see anyone else catch any fish. Ice seemed plenty thick, about 10-12 inches, but there was some snow on top that made moving spots tough.

angler, thanks for the report. The weather has been less than optimal with the barometer and wind, etc. I never did get over there Monday. I assume that you mean the bridge by the dam in the deeper water. (Like I said, I have never been on the lake) I think we will try it Saturday and Im sure it will be busy everywhere if the weather report holds true. I'll check in if we end up there. Thanks

Anyone catching anything up on Martin? Might go out next weekend and just seeing if I should go elsewhere. Thanks for any help!

Went out today and it looked like there were lots of trucks and houses out by the point on the west side. Are the people out there catchin any?

I was out today in the afternoon and drilled lots of holes (ice about 17 inches thick), fished any where from 7-16 ft but only managed a few smaller crappies and one small sunny. Is any one catching any keeper crappies or any walleyes at all out there? Thanks for any help!

Havent been back to Martin for a couple of weeks. We had fished by that dam and it was the same story. Lots of little whites. Sorry...not much help.

we were over on FL and we had about 20 inches ice. We and others drove all over.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
