Okay so I put my 8 x 16 house out today.

I have 13 inches of ice under me off from Stevens point in 22 feet of water.

There are a ton of wheelhouses out.

NO 1/2 ton trucks as of yet.

I have seen jeeps, cars and small trucks on the ice.

Ice is firm, no slush that I saw.

Looks pretty good.

Will continue to get better.

In contrast I went to the launch by the public beach on the east end. Most houses were within 1/4 mile of shore. No trucks/cars out yet. The ice is still HIGHLY variable. I've drilled holes that varied from 12 inches to 5 inches. If you go out use a well travelled route. Playing Cap'n Kirk could get you in a "hole" lot of trouble.

I was over by Velvet Beach and there was 12-14 inches of good ice. The top inch or two was a little cloudy, but the stuff underneigh was good ice. Saw a lot of big trucks just north of velvet on a plowed road. I wouldn't drive on it yet with my truck, but I guess that is because my truck doesn't float very well.

Where do they access pelican in the velvet beach area? I know there is a public access on the northeast side of the lake though I've never used it. I've also not seen plowed areas in the 2 years I've tried pelican, must be in the wrong spot grin.gif

We are just north of velvet beach, by the grey house. It is a few more houses north of there. I don't think there is a public access there because it would be on my road, but there were a lot of cars and trucks coming through some guys yard. Don't know if he was charging money to go out there. The road was about 200 yards north of my fish house and was getting quite a bit of traffic. The road cut in a southwest direction toward area between Lincoln Point and Gooseberry.

Well I went out by breezy point.......I was set up in 27ft at the bottom of a rocky point....at dark the crappies started showing up and biting hard caught close to 20 keeping 8 of them from 9-11 inches and caught 2 walleyes, a 12 and a fat 18 1/4. The rest of the group didn't fair so well as they were 30 yards away and caught 3 small crappies and 1 small walleye and a whitefish between 3 of them. Walked out and found one slushy spot about a hundred yards long....not fun to walk through.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
