Had almost 13 inches on the 23rd of December 

That was measured in the circle

there was a couple big ice houses where the lines were and a couple tandem axels in the circle some 14 footers passed the circle trucks were going around all over in the circle as well

 

The ? by goose island there may be bad ice there I was on the sled pulling my trailer and there was a little pressure ridge and we got snow the night before and it looked like the snow wasn't being built up in a little area just a heads up I would use caution over there. There was a little wheel house south of the ? though

I got up here Saturday and ice was exactly as zackd described with an extra inch or two of ice where I checked. Drove truck and wheel house without wheeler. Fishing was slow for me. I moved to lake Cullen with similar ice and fish fry! I will take a look today for ridges.

Measured 15-1/2" of ice out of breezy point. There is a small ridge coming off the north west island point jetting toward the west (beach). There is a driving traffic road going south over the ridge but is flat and road pack solid where the road crosses. There is another small ridge mid way off the island jetting north and another small ridge at the north east corner of the island also jetting to the north bay going out several hundred yards. This is what saw this am.

Wow, thanks for the report.  I always seem to find a spot to get the sled and porty across. It's just nice to know there out there if you head out in the dark.

Possibly coming up in the next upcoming weekends. Is there any good areas this year that’s producing a decent bit I’ve heard it’s been pretty slow so far? I know last year there was a good crappie bite in halverston bay but ended up sticking close to the resort and got a few gills. Looking for eyes and crappies if no real good bite thinking of heading to the southwest and trying the gull area. Thanks

      Lonny or if someone else can answer do you charge more in Sept to make the special trips or is it the standard rate.  Also on a side note took my two citified nieces up there over the 4th for the day and we absolutely killed the Small mouth and even got a bonus trout, they have both asked when the next time we are going up there.  10 and 7.   Tumy  Also depends on what you are looking for, the bass fishing will be fantastic find island cast around said island catch 25 bass. HAH  The bluegills might be a little deeper that time of the year.  Walleyes I have two spots I would try that time of year but have never had much success in July and August, that also might be I do it for an hour and 5 pound small mouth start dancing through my head.

      We also ran into Fisky on the lake as well as at the weigh-in. He is a fun guy to share a boat seat with.....and catches lots of fish big and small. We had a 30 1/4 fairly early but struggled to find 18 - 19 inchers. Or 16 or 17's. We had 1 18 and finally kept two 14 1/2's as the day wound down.  Not getting nice unders was really unexpected. But color us very happy with the results. Good luck

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.
