where you thinking of going, she's a big lake.

last sunday on the east side, there was over 24" of ice. most i've talked to are finding the perch on the muddy flats. i was seeing them in the 25' FOW.

two weeks ago, i went home with 3, last weekend, i took 5 but saw alot more on the camera. the fishing is only going to get better.

drill some holes and move around until you find them. if you don't see anything in 30-45 minutes try another spot.

i can't imagine 1 week of nice weather has hurt the ice, but i'd call ahead just to be sure..

I would head up. Ice is fine, but the shore line could possibley become and issue next weekend if 50 deg. days keeping rolling around. I think the day time temp is not the major issue, but we need cold nights.

I am sure this weekend is going to be a great weekend to head up.

Good luck.

We were up last Saturday 3-8-08 outside of Appledorns. Fished about 2 1/2 hrs and saw nothing. Ice is at least 36" thick. Bottomed my Jiffy 10" auger out and barley got thru. Moved North around 2:30. Went out in front of Hunter's Point. 28' of water west side of south 2 mile. Fished 3 hrs. Saw 1 walleye and two very small perch. Caught nothing. Also bottomed Jiffy 10" auger out. Bring extension. Good Luck!

this weekend is the ice roads ice fishing clinic, the guys are running out of hunters point. not sure how many people or where they're fishing, but that could put alot of traffic on some parts of the lake..

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.
