Boy, those businesses up there have got to be hurting.  Nobody there.  No roads plowed.  Very sad.

Yes they are taking a beating, but as sportsman we  can still go up there and have a burger and beer. Or buy some jigs, bait, or anything.

Dang, I have been watching the bay web cam for a month waiting for the snow to melt down to give it a try. And every time I look at it there is More Snow! :tired::crazy:

@leech I see plenty of bare ice. They don't have much for snow at all. What are you waiting for? ib.jpg.affdfd93e504d4cfa6792d9984e56431.jpg

Program is still trying to up date a down camera. I see it all the time on these Web cams and they get them back up in a few days. But, it's dark now. "Nothing new here to see"  :grin:

leech, should you choose to accept it, ... As always, should you or any of your Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in ten seconds. Good luck leech.

Todays sun rays, and 50 degree temps sure knocked the snow down a lot. Quite a few birds on the bare fields coming back home tonight. Great bite prior to that front moving in....5ad6a135991bd_04171819071.thumb.jpg.e0df6bddbc1fbb41064f76aae1dd50be.jpg

A few years ago I had a friend who had a cabin near Izaty's and he said crappies will move into their harbor in the spring.  He claimed that they were never thick in there, but when he caught one, it was big (like 14-16 inches).  It was all private land there so he had to get permission to fish it (from shore).  I know there are some other backwater areas too around Isle Bay that could harbor some.  I have never personally targeted crappies on the big pond and I've never caught one by accident either.  My Grandpa caught one that was 18 inches about 5 years ago before he died, I did see a photo of that one.

I drove along the south shore this morning on my way to a conference.  Cove bay looked to be IN still.  At Wahkon the main part of the bay was IN but the marshy areas are OUT.  All the ice I could see looked pretty rotten.

Oh, and Onamia is OUT.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      Fish went deeper durring the day today. Not easy cracking the code this year

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I just got a report from nextdoor that we have 8-10 inches.

      I noticed this morning that it had heaved out in Miller Bay kind of between the DNR access and Four Mile Bar. Really raising heck with my shore. Going to have to take a sledge hammer to my shore tomorrow so I can get out.
    • knoppers
      any current report on ice thickness around palisade?
    • PRO-V
      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.
