Hi Just checking to see if you can get around the bay with a truck and wheelhouse. We have 4x4 but would suck to get stuck. We have a cabin up their but havent been up since everyone has been saying slush and snow is bad on the lakes. Also any sunnies or crappies bitting.

I was thinking of going from the access to about an imaginary line from the Boy Scout camp across to the point. No further because we have done really good in years past in that half of the bay for eyes and pannies. Gregg52 what are u fishing for out their if you dont want to say give me an em ail at ryan dot schaitberger at mnsu dot edu Would be greatly appreciated. We have a cabin pretty close to the [PoorWordUsage] camp. Thanks for the info

I like that It took out Boy Scout . Thanks for the info. It sounds nice and hopefully the fish bite. Down here Lots of 8-9 inch crappies and small sunnies is all for the winter, but size up their defiianetly improves Last year we got 1/2 lb to 3/4 lb gills on the weekend after houses had to be off. Late ice is my favorite time but this year probably will miss it because of a little trip snow goosin in Mizzuo the second week of March. Again thanks for the info.

Driving off the plowed roads is possible after last weekends warm-up. I drove all over a different lake Sunday with no problems.

      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. 😉

      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.

      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
