Same for me on Green by Princeton once it got dark the fish started biting. I was marking them and only had 4 bites while the sun was up.

Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

Got out to west rush early this morning. No slush issues while I was there, but that could be different by days end. The landing was quickly degrading in just the few hours I was there...landing on east lake is worse. Only caught 5 crappies. Schools were scattered and on the move, and fish weren’t very active. Ice was about 32 inches, which made hole hopping very difficult with an ion auger. Caught a nice sun burn on my face :blush:

South Center still has 33 inches of ice. No snow anywhere, so things are quite slippery now. Drove all over lake looking for fish, tried depths ranging from 5 to 40 ft. Nothing but a few little perch. Sunset point access started to open up at the shoreline towards the end of the day.

Was on Chisago on Friday. Ice was about 33 inches, but unlike last week, the top few inches was a little softer. Access was getting beat up, but with the upcoming forecast, might very well lock back up. Only caught a few tiny sunfish.

I am thinking of hitting Ann lake or knife soon if you are interested?

I’ve been wishing and hoping to hit Mille Lacs for a few weeks now. This current blast of snow might be the nail in the coffin on those plans. As of now, not sure what this weekend holds for me.

Went to Bone Lake today. I think I’m ready for open water, as I didn’t even want to go fishing today, but I had a lot of bait that I wanted to use up. Access was beat up, and shoreline ice was soft, but out on the lake the ice was a solid 30 inches. No slush yet either. Didn’t have too much trouble finding fish, but they did not want to bite. I was kinda’ mentally checked out, so I made very little effort in enticing them either. So I only caught 2 bluegills. Unless Mille Lacs is safe and accessible next week, today was probably my last outing of the season. Already researching trout streams for the opener.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?  
    • AlwaysFishing23
      My yard!! Lol packing things away today. Getting ready for summer Be a great day to get out though.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      By the landing yet it is.

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
