Just wondering if you can park by the VFW??? I went there and it was a private dock sign so I went over to the Ramsey beach and got a couple small walleye only... catch and released. Plus there was a ton of little perch.

I usually park in front of Johnson Boat Works and walk out from there launch.....I don't think they mind a bit. If you want to avoid the one way street i'd park at the shopping center lot.

I was in 20 fow by the 3 permanents. When the sun set the walleyes came in fast and I missed two nice hits. Caught them two on small shiners. I would recommend buying shiners if you're going for walleyes over there. My buddy caught one on fatheads with a jigging spoon.

I saw a couple of guys fishing in front of the vfw but didn't know where they parked so I wondering if I'd be able to park there without any problem. Thanks.

As far as I know you can park anywhere along that road. Many many moons ago I worked at that kowalskis. I never saw any problems with parking there.

I was out off Ramsey this morn with my Grandson. No caught fish, but we saw lots of perch and one BIG muskie on the camera. He just loafed around for awhile, showed slight interest in a Swedish pimple, but no other fish. That was in about 15 FOW near the rocks.

We moved slightly to 21 FOW and saw schools of small perch, but nothing else, and no perch even bit. I am thinking we were too shallow, who knows. Hard to move a ton with aq little guy along smile.gif

Ha! Nope, not yet. No sled, so have to wait until we can drive out in truck to pull it. I forgot to even look colsely at ice, but I would guesstimate about 10". We were just inbetween the purple shakc and the rock pile today. I think farther east and deeper would have been better. Talked to another guy whoe was south of the rock pile and he didn't get a bite, so he moved waaaay farther east, other side of bar.

I was hoping to have it out, but maybe next weekend. smile.gif Good luck tonight. I have to go to last party of the season.

The rock pile is labeled Ordways bar on maps. On the lake though it is surrounded by orange snow fence, because they are sticking out of the water this year. You can either go out from Motaska park or Ramsey beach either way its a hual without a fourwheeler or snowmobile. I pulled my gear by myself and was exhausted last night. blush.gif

Hey, cool, you had much better luck than us smile.gif I am thinking about tonight, but not sure if the queens are worth watching or not... Plus I'm not feeling great.

But good to hear you had action. I will try deeper too. I know I always fish 26-28+ in summer, so I should know better than to go too shallow in winter, but I ain't the brightest bulb smile.gif

From Ramsey Beach somebody (thank you whoever you are! I think maybe the folks in the purple shack) plowed a small road with ATV, so nice and easy pulling even by foot.

Good luck!

I too would like to thank that person. You have no idea how much easier that made pulling my gear out today.

Thank You!!

I wish I had some info for you guys, but after last year horrid season I had on WBL, I have been very reluctant to go out there this year. And after reading the posts, I have a feeling I would have the same luck as last year. I don't know if I was just that horrid of a Ice Fisherman (very well could be) but all I could pull out of the hole was pike (off waxies) and perch. I would love to hit the EYES out there this year, but if I do it wont be for 2 weeks.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
