Hi everyone I was just curious of what depths people are fishig walleyes in and if crappies are bitting and what depths they are in. We fish it a ton in the summer and do really good on walleyes and sunfish but this is the first time I am bringing up the ice castle perm to try it for a friday and saturday night. Im not looking for spots because we have some of are favorite late fall spots on our gps but I just want to no some depths. When i arrive back I will let a line about how the fishin was thanks for all your comments ahead of time! Minnetonkaman

Hi Minnetonka, the fishing on North Long has been a little hit or miss this winter. For the walleyes I would concentrate on fishing 18-28 feet with shiners. Shiners have been the ticket over the last 2-3 weeks. I have heard much lately on crappies from N. Long, maybe someone else here has some crappie info. Good luck!

late night

No crappies for me but I have been doing OK on the walleye in 26-27ft. I have been using fatheads. Somedays they seem to like the set-line better than the jig. Glow green demon or plain red hook have seemed to work equally well. I have been using a glow red jigging spoon for a jig. Sometimes they look at the jig, then I give my set-line a little tug and wham! The fish I have been catching are not the biggest, lots of 10-12 inchers but they are fun. Prime time is running just before 5PM until just befor 6PM. I did catch some fish earlier in the day out a little deeper, 37ft. Maybe a guy could do well all day starting deep and moving shallower as the evening goes.

Thanks for the replies but I forgot to ask if there is any plowed roads or if you can drive any where close to breaks . I have a 4 wheel drive chevy crew cab that I pull my fishhouse out with. If SB or late night knows it would be greatly appreciated.

All of our lakes are in great shape. You should be able to drive where you want to, we hardly have any snow on the lakes. Just watch for heaves, there haven't been many this year but you never know.

      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.

      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.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
