I haven't been out for a bit. I've seen trucks on area lakes still today. A wheeler might be safer at the access soon.

That was my plan. Thanks.?

There are also springs in various places around the lake, mostly west of the bridge.

West of the bridge.... possibly where the best fishing is.... I'm not confirming or denying that statement ?

Have not fished there, there's so many lakes up there. Looking forward to June and taking the nephews into Kramer though.

Yes west of 169 on Pokegama is a lot of water ?

Just read a Jeff sundin report he updated today. On winnie done resorts are only letting quests out, some are still allowing trucks but that's on a daily basis. Most if not all are strongly suggesting ATV.

 

Haven't seen anything about bowstring.

well sure hope Kettle had better luck fishing then I did!!!!!!!! got up there wed mid morning, was surprised at the lack of snow. unloaded and hit the little crappie hole for the evening run and never marked a fish. by the time i got to thinking they might of moved shallower it was to late to move. mark it down as to old not thinking. ? got 3 1/2 inches of snow overnite.

 

thursday morning i needed to get a few things done around the cabin, went out on the cabin lake, never marked a fish in the tried and true crappie hole. moved to shallower water.....24 ft other hole was 35 ft. never marked a fish.

 

friday  was a meet up dat on the west side of winnie for perch chasing.  after finding our nodaks where only letting guests out the destination was west winnie campground. well the ramp was piled up and noone had gone out. called beckers resort, they told us they have been using the campground even yesterday. yea NOT, with the new snow ya didnt have to be Columbo to see it wasnt used. we could see trucks out a ways too!!!!! well beckers said a big crack developed overnite with fishermen on the WRONG side of the crack. they where working on a bridge.....well this guy wasnt going there, so we hiked over to highbanks. they where letting trucks out, but no houses. was surprised how good the ice was went 6 miles out nuttin. then back in to 16 ft of water....got 1 perch. ?

 

so saturday the plan was to meet up with 3 more, desitnation, bowstring, there where a few small vehicles out, we took ATV,s from the access by geigers, long story short 2 different places no fish........called it an ice season by noon. went back to the cabin had a fire and drank beer!!!!!!!!

i forgot to mention we blamed it on the weather pattern, barametric pressure and the zeebs on winnie. i've heard this before but they claim since the zeebs have been in winnie, the perch seemedto have changed there late ice pattern.

I caught a mix of sunfish, crappie and bass in 6-10 feet on Saturday. Not a ton but the fish were aggressive, tungsten glow jigs and waxies

any reports on ice going away, especially on smaller lakes. giegers cam looks to me like there landing isnt just water on the ice anymore, and the narrows has open water.

Apperantly an ATV went through the ice on Pokegama Lake off Kings landing the other day.

Sad news but not surprising, ice is going fast! No snow left in the cities some decent sized bodies of water nearly completely open

I checked the geiger's and Williams narrows cams this morning. Not much has changed in the past 3 days.

 

I want to get back up there but really would want the cabin lake ice free first. This is really testing my patience ??

?Again?:(:P According to over 30 years of records for our lake ice-out on a normal year is somewhere around 4/25 on average & for an early year the average is about 4/15. Some above normal temps, near 60*, predicted starting next weekend for nearly 10 days so we may even be on the front side of the early ice-out date a little.

looking at the webcams, ice on bowstring and the narrows looks pretty sick this morning.

 

looked at this Modis and kinda hard to figure out why some of the bigger lakes are more ice free then the smaller ones????????

      I'm confident that almost every big muskie, bass, and walleye I release alive swims away and survives.  Even ones that are deep hooked.  I have the ability to remove the hook very quickly and get it back into the water.  Do some of them die?  Perhaps.  But I know for a fact that if I kept it, it would 100% die.  Having the right tools and the ability to do it quickly and efficiently makes a big difference, especially in the warm summer months.  Also, I rarely use live bait anymore and live bait has been proven to cause a higher mortality rate.

      Yeah, I’ve fished Chequamegon Bay a few times. Never did very well over there.    Superior will have to freeze a whole lot more before I venture out there. I’ve only ice fished out of Duluth once before, and that was 3 years ago when over 80% of the lake was frozen over. It was pretty cool! I remember marking lots of lake trout. Also caught my personal best brown trout.

      Tried a shallow pothole lake today that didn’t have slush!!! For real!   Landed on some bass before I found the crappies.  Caught 3 before the last one broke my line and made off with my micro rippin rap.  Dang!  Hope I can find another one.  I’ve been leaning on that bait for scouting.  Fish like to look at it and bump it but not usually hook up unless it’s eelpout, pike and now bass.  All I’ve needed was for them to show themselves and maybe hit the closest set line.   Those are good eaters in the winter.   Found the crappies and had a good bite going just before dark and then they got lock jaw.  30.24 barometer didn’t help and hole hopping at 15 below just isn’t as fun as it used to be so I loaded up.  To be continued another day.

      That’s a game I never really got into playing.  Only one time was I ever on Superior ice.  Cool experience and managed a kamloops but never went back.   Have you ever tried the Apostle Islands?
    • monstermoose78
      Any word on the ice this year
    • monstermoose78
      Anyone want to meet up and fish this weekend private message me . 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Few people were out fishing today. Reports I saw said the ice was up to 5 inches thick, and making lots of noise! Saw a few fish pics too, some cohos and lakers. Sounds like the wind is going to shift tonight though, so all ice could very well be gone tomorrow 😢 keeping my fingers crossed that the ice field keeps expanding and getting thicker!
    • smurfy
      no arguement from me!!!!!!!

      Vermilion is a weird lake. I've probably caught 12 -15 fish that measured 26.5 inches. My family has seen the same thing amongst relatives.  It's like they hit that size and stop. I've caught one 27.5,  and seen a 28.5 and 29 caught.  That's it for real big fish over the slot. I know there are still a bunch of 30 inches swimming in the lake, I just never seem to catch them.  Bumping the slot to 28 would be okay. I'm not really for it or against it. I still don't like having to toss back fish that are likely to die. Bigger walleye take more time and effort to get in. While I have zero plans to eat a walleye over 20 inches, leaving a dying fish for the seagulls and crayfish seems silly. 
    • leech~~
      Um, yeah I like to ride on trails in the woods not on lakes. Their cold, windy, slushy and boring with nothing to see. 😒
