Is there enough snow cover to get around on sleds? Or is driving the better option right now? I prefer to leave the truck on shore if I can. 

 

Thanks and and good luck!

Was wonder the same. I'm thinking of either hitting Mille Lacs or somewhere in Brainerd in the morning with the sled and porty?

I would say not enough snow for a snowmobile. At least not on the lakes in this area .( St Francis / Cambridge )The wind has blown the skiff of snow that we got into small piles, barely enough to put on the flaps of a portable. I have used my cleats the last couple of days.

Good Luck Fishing

I just checked the Mille Lacs cam site and it's don't look good. Guess I'll run up to Brainerd I know they had more snow up there a week or two ago.

Leech, at least west of brainerd, the is almost no snow on the lakes.  Plus we recieved zero snow this last week.  Not looking good in this neck of the woods for sleds.

I just got back from Mille Lacs. There's barely any snow, and the ice is so uneven and slippery that I could barely walk around and hole-hop, even with chains that usually provide plenty of grip. I almost went down a few times. The ice surface looks like ripples on the water.

I was going to run up there but the web cam shots didn't looks great for snow. Thanks for the update.

      BINGO!! There isn't a time out that I don't laugh my arse off watching the way some of them pike act. That's the most fun of spearing.  
    • smurfy
      Usually by grabbing a stick, piece of brush, downed branches from shore.

      Release is not chucking the spear!
    • gimruis
      Absolutely.  But angling with hook and line has the option for catch and release.  Spearing does not have that option.
    • gimruis
      If you don't mind me asking, how are old spear holes supposed to be marked?  I'm not familiar with this issue.
    • smurfy
      well I just drove past pokey like about 11;30 today on 169...……...and not to many are out and about just yet.😀 talked to a few locals..still pretty tough getting around on some of the lakes!!!!

      I use mine on and off fishing. I have a sun shield for mine in the summer. it works ok at best. but I do use it to watch fish and check structure. I just used it the last 3 weekends tipup fishing. its both fun and frustrating. to watch a pike grab the sucker, mess with it then let it go, and watch there behavior is crazy fun. and frustrating. I bought a tripod for mine and you can zero in on your bait, but it does take a bit of playing to get it set right. I lost the little rubber stopper so I use a couple winter depth finders. the only downfall is the deeper you need to set it, the more risk you have of a fish tangling up in it!!!!

      "Tis the season"     Thee best time of the ice season is here. Get off the couch and enjoy it!

      Very common to find large openings in ice after several 40 degree days, and especially with rain. 8" angling holes can easily double in size overnight after a good rain.  It's pretty hard to "mark" holes at that point in the season. Best time to be out there, in my opinion. But, by all means,  if your not comfortable with it Stay Home. For those that want to experience the best bite of the season, just watch your step, and be careful you don't loose that Vexilar down an oversize hole 😆 or get pulled in by a big fish 😢 😢 😢     Won't be long, for me to get the planks and waders ready 😀

      that can happen. years back I speared the lake the cabin was on the very last weekend. I push the ice chunk back in the hole and mark it. later on in march I took my grandson up to fish panfish. that ice chunk was completely melted and a wide open hole. we fished and caught sunfish out of that hole. the spear holes e cut that weekend, if I remember right there were 3...……..were all open...…..and we where still driving wheelers on the ice.
