You mean "The Black Pool". We used to catch crappies in the there in the spring and summer. Also catch bass along the edges.

BNS, I've had guys telling me there all over the lake. BJ's report says 16" but I don't know where they're taking the measurments from and how long ago that was. I'd bet now there is an additional inch or two out there.

BJ's has a road to the narrows and a road to the 50ft hole and further east. I was out a couple days this past week and there were several trucks driving around and there was around 15-17 inches of ice where I drilled. I managed a few sunnies and marked a few walleyes but fishing was slowwwwwwwww!

Is it just me or has fishing been slow this year. A few others i have talked to thought the same thing have to work very very hard to find the fish and catch them this year.

I had my best luck around the 24-30 range but i was fishing later in the year so might have to wait a little longer before the good ones bite.

BJ's doesen't flag the road but it's pretty hard to miss. Now that there is ice, i've been diving off of the public access. There is very little snow on the lake now and you can drive around the lake pretty easy, I haven't needed the 4 wheel drive yet. There are a couple spots to watch out for like the river from augusta and the narrow end of bungalo island.

Antler, thanks for the info on the public access. Were you using the one to the north or south. Which one has the river that is right by it. Thanks for the info.

The south access has the culvert nearby with the river running through it by the access/landing.A guy dumped his truck in there last year right out in front of the culvert/bridge, so stay away from it.Go straight out to the lake at the south access, and do not go to the right, you should be ok.

Thanks rock. I'm not sure if I'm gonna go out today or tomorrow. Are people catching fish in the crowds or should I get away and try to find them? Thanks for the quick response.

I haven't been out on Clearwater yet this year.I do remember the guy with the truck incident, and the last time I was there(last year,or two years back) the culvert had open water in front of it.Sorry, I don't have any recent fishing advice to give.

The access I go from is by lake augusta, across from the bar. You will see where everybody has been driving on at, just make sure you don't go right after getting on to the lake. Follow the tracks either to the left or straight out onto the lake toward the island (don't drive through the cattails). Fishing can be ok in the crowds but as of lately there hasn't been much action.

I'm heading out that direction in a little bit to brave the cold and hope something is willing to bite.

Wish me luck, I might need it!!

Fishing continues to be a little slow but the bite seems to be picking up a little, We ended up with a few eater sunnies for the 2 of us.

      "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.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
