I've been out a couple times to pearl and grand but haven't been able to find the eye's yet, just wondering if anyone's finding them around here.

Was on Grand yesterday, we found a spot where we caught a couple eyes and missed a couple more. Not great fishing, but something to do on a Christmas day. No real schools of them, though, just one every once in a while that would either decide to bite or keep swimming. As far as Pearl, I consider that more if I want to do some northern fishing.

We ran into some good sized slush pockets, but were able to navigate around them if you get to the shore closer. Ice varied from 10 inches without much snow, to 6-7 where there was snow/slush. We had a four wheeler, and tried by the crappie spot for a while after dark, nothin doing. There were a few locals that walked out to that spot, and left a half hour after dark. Must not be much going on right now there. If you get out, let us know how you do. smirk.gif

Thanks for letting me know! I usually don't fish Grand until you can drive on it. With the conditions you gave sounds like it might be a bit since I don't want to walk to my spot (which was lost when I switched gps units frown.gif) Hopefully this cold weather coming on Tuesday will get things a little more solid, and the ice thicker. Went to Little Rock today instead, but thanks again for the report.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
