Anyone have ice conditions or fishing report for crappies and Pike on this lake. I have never been to it but am thinking about hitting it up reeds lake tomorrow and george lake on saturday but I have never been on George lake before. Any comments towards ice conditions, pike report, or crappie report on the lake would be great just to have the thought there is fish in george lake.

George had a bad winter kill last year

I gotta disagree there.

Crappies are getting bigger. Northerns have gotten smaller (too many taken in previous years). I spend one or two days each feb going after northerns and bass and it is usually a ton of fun. East side, 8-20'.

This lake was a great northern producer the last 3 years. But as truth said, too many taken the last few years. Numerous 4-7lb fish the last two years and the spearers finally got the clear water this year. There were 7 spearhouses on this lake earlier this year. An 80 acre lake cannot sustain that kind of pressure. Neighbors buddies were bragging they speared 7 fish in one week over 28 inches. I love spearing. I wonder what they do with all that meat? Maybe with all the pike gone, those big bass will come back. This lake used to produce monster bass. My mom has 2 6.5lbs on her wall from one day about 10 years ago. And thats winter weight on those bass!

Jaspernuts, It sure was a fun lake for a few years. There were some monsters in there! I still think there are some dandy bass in there.

There are a few truth but they did get hit with winterkill last spring. Found several 3-4 lbs ers washed up on shore with the sunnies. It wasn't a total kill, but some of em got hit.

      Wow, interesting

      Back when the DNR was seining our beach in July I asked, and apparently they were through oak narrows.   But long way to go to get to us.   I'll keep my eyes open and my mask and snorkel on.  Didn't see any sign off them this summer.

      Nice job Troy.   We are happy with our opening day for ducks.  2 man limit of mixed species by 10am.  LOTS of people where we were today but that was expected.  Other than getting beat to our spot, no issues that would keep up away.  Not even the rain.

      Thanks, I'm riding this now TW200 so not sure I can get on any of the ATV trails. Might have to sled by in the winter! 👍

      There are actually 3 tree carvings on the trail from Soudan to Ely.  I saw 2 of them but missed the 3rd.  I believe that trail is the Prospector Trail #4 or #6.  You have to start from the parking lot on the Murray Road 2 miles past Soudan since several property owners on the old railroad bed didn't allow off-road vehicles on their properties.  Another option is to travel from Tower to Embarrass then on to Ely, but that adds a couple hours to the trip.

      I've seen that caving on a few web pages. What trail is that on?  It would be cool to ride by. 👍

      The colors are getting good. Beautiful time of year. Maples are full red and birch and aspen are going too.  I’m not finding a formula for walleyes. Best luck when fishing saddles and shoreline drop offs 10’ down to 20’. I’m using old crawlers, too, because a) it’s hard to find minnows although Northwoods in Cook has them and b) it’s been too warm to keep them alive.  We do have a change in weather happening right now. Wind is coming up and the temperature is dropping. It’s going to be hard to fish Saturday through Monday but the change could be good after that.  Good luck, you’ll need some. They are out there and you’ll get dinner but you’ll have to work for them. RLG

      A few pics of our ride.

      Thank you. Yes, weather does look sketchy but we'll make the best of it. Looking forward to the colors and just getting away.

      Some more heavily fished lakes are tough ALL season.  Lake Minnetonka and Mille Lacs come to mind.  The water is clear, there are tournaments all the time, and the fish are not easy to catch.   That is why I focus my efforts on lakes with less pressure.
