I think they went on a diet from last year. All we are catching this year is 6 to 7 inchers this year. Still better than sitting in front of the TV our working though!!

The last 2 yaers have been tough down there, but the years before that when we had a permanent house down there we sure had some fun!! A couple of those years it seemed like you couldn't do anything but catch fish. hope your right with the cold weather!!

I was thinking the same exact thing about the "other side" of the river: any suggestions on where to go/what to do? This will be my 1st time over there...looking forward to something different. Since that season is open past the 24th, does the fishing continue to get better?

Whoops- now there will be 40-50 people at least in that area this weekend, and it will be even harder than it was for you to get bit. If you want to give depth, and presentation...awesome, very helpful.

I hear the hot bite is in front of the Lake City Sportsmans club. I bet if you drive out there on saturday afternoon you'll see hundreds of people out there......just remember your five dollars for an entery fee!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?
    • biff
      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
