Is it safe to park at the access and take the snowmobile out from there where the creek goes into the lake? Planning on heading out Sunday.

How much snow was on top of it all? My buddy said there was almost a foot over most of the lake. Anyone going to be fishing Monday? Thanks for the reports guys.

There is about 8-12 inches of snow on top of it all... it would be a hay-day for a sled, but tough for a 4wheeler without chains... I wish i could stay up for MLK day, but i gots ta workey-work at my J.O.B.............................

I was out there Friday and caught two browns and had a couple of huge rainbows but they woud only gum my bait and never swalowed the hook. I would have probably moved around more but my brand new auger broke... kind of [PoorWordUsage] me off! I cant wait to get up there again. There was a total of 13" with only 6" being clear and the top 7" was white ice. And there was only 4" maybe 6" at the most that I saw. There was some idiot that went full bore out into the middle of the lake with a full size truck, pretty mucha idiot if you ask me!

What do you use for Browns and Rainbows? I never tried fishing for them before. What are the limits for them also?

I used crappie minnows as far as the imits do you think you could look in the regs ike everyone else does so you are responsible for your self. Do you reay want to trust someone you dont even know and then go out and they are wrong and you have more then you are supposed too and then Mr. CO shows up! Trust me just ook in the book, you should have one with you when fishing anyways.

I will OOK in the book. I already have too much stuff with me to carry the regs also. Got to draw the line somewhere. Don't plan on catching my limit anyway.

Well we were out there until 12 and only caught 1 smelt. Alot of people were fishing right off the shore. I am guessing they were fishing for Browns and Rainbows? The wind picked up and we decided to do some snowmobiling instead.

According to the CO, fishing was far better on opening day. Apparently the pressure didn't help fishing after. I can say that the trout seemed hard to find on the electronics, but the two lakers I caught were visible on the graph first. Also got a 3 lb pike and about 8 smelt that were tasty for breakfast. I was pestered by small perch too.

So what's the deal with the shacks right next to shore. Is this where to find the streamers?

      Some of the lakes have roads park and walk it what I will be doing

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      Here's another I just saw in the newspaper.

      Thanks I'll pass it along!!

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.
    • monstermoose78
      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
