the ice is super think but the landings and the roads are getting beat up pretty bad. just got off of carson bay and the landing looked like a swamp. I just tried to stay out of what looked like open water (I am sure its not open) and made a new path. after getting out on the lake a ways the ice was in great shape! If you want to get out a few more times in your car / truck i sugesst you head out this weekend or take a day off work the landings are not going to hold up very long.

ohh and the fishing stunk I got skunked for the first time at my go to spot!

Bald Eagle landing is 30-50 feet of 6 inch deep water and lots of ruts. I wouldn't recommend trying any low slung vehicles but my 2WD F150 made it out late Friday afternoon.

I was bored so I went and checked out both Upper and Lower Prior Lakes and Spring Lake. Never fished them even though I live in AV so I basically was just out looking around where people are fishing and the ice conditions to fish sometime in the next couple days.

Landings were getting rutted pretty badly. Spring lake the public access was ok and I came off on another access that was beat up really badly and rutted badly.

With this forecast it looks like ice fishing season just may have come to an end, or at least driving out.

Looking at the forecast this week with not a low below freezing and some rain coming I've conceded that my driving days are over this year. I just can't bring myself to risk dropping my truck in, I unfortunately need it to get to work on Monday and dropping it into a lake won't suffice as a good enough excuse not to go to work wink I'll be on foot next weekend if I head out, hopefully find some fish.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
