Lakes are TOUGH but few lakes have some trails. Guessing you are looking for tulibee with those two lakes mentioned. We fished rose last year 12-14 inches and full of worms.

We slaughtered them on Rose last year, 3 of us doing nothing but dropping down and reeling up but there was like a 85-90% worm rate.  It was a blast of a trip probably caught 70-80 fish, keeping 40 plus but almost all got pitched due to worms.  Also wasn't impressed with size of them being 12-15 inches long.  

 

Cousin and I were debating on going to Long tomorrow morning but he heard there is 2 feet of slush on the lake.  He has a tracked wheeler and I was going to go across on snowmobile but he said his contacts were saying do not go out there.  I heard there is a private access on the east side of the lake that the guy charges a yearly fee to cross his property but I don't know any more information other that that.  I'm hoping to scout it a little bit tonight if I can get down there before dark otherwise it'll be tomorrow after I'm done fishing.  I have 2 lakes I'm potentially going to by Vergas chasing tulibees and see if they are flooded.

Be careful on the ice.  Saturday a buddy drove out onto the lake got about 100-150 feet out and broke through the frozen slush.  Took about 2 hours to get him out.  Yesterday morning I walked out to a tulibee spot since it was only 0.4 miles out and looked like snowmobile tracks most of the way.  Started drilling my hole and after a few seconds I broke through to water.  There was 9 inches of frozen slush 1-2 inches of water and 24-26 inches of ice.  As the day warmed up the top kept melting and when I left at noon I had about 4 inches of frozen slush and 6 inches of slush/water on top of the ice.  With warm weather coming I hope that slush that is frozen will just stay broken up and we can start driving around but until then I'm foot traffic or wheeler till then.  Some lakes are still snowmobile friendly but in 2-3 days I doubt that will still be the case.  

 

Fishing report for me was 

6:30-7:30 3 fish

7:30-8:30 20-25 fish was a blast!

8:30-12:00 20-25 fish

 

Was in 74 fow and I actually adjusted my graph to only fish the top 40 feet and 99% of my fish came from 15-25 feet down.  Very aggressive fish and was a blast.

      First off congrats on the trophys. I've had a few eyes done at Fiber Tech Productions Brainerd and have been really happy with the workmanship done by them. Highly recommend them.

      Was just out on a small lake near me checking it out. Shoreline ice is deteriorating on the north side otherwise seemed ok... Gonna be hitting a large lake after I eat. Generally get some big whitefish (even after dark) and a few big crappie out there, thinking about bringing my plank just in case,  landing is on the east end so it should be ok.

      does the DNR list these lakes?????? I also heard the DNR quit allowing permiscuos fishing??? anyone else hear this??? 
    • MikeG3Boat
      Looking for advice/recommendation on getting a replica done for 2 different fish.  One is a 14 1/2" Crappie other is a 14" perch both are my personal bests.  Wonder who has had fish replicas made for those two fish?  Any recommendations are welcome.

      Yah the Dam in cold spring is quite the site I stopped there and looked at it . Its gushing !!
    • smurfy
      I just drove by the chain and can second that!!!!!!! in cold spring there was a sheriffs deputy and a cold spring officer on the old railroad bridge. the deputy looked like he had some type of gadget in his hand. water was really pouring over that dam.  with the news that Antons got evacuated last nite with a full house i'm sure everyones on full flood alert!!!

      I would say its over around my area. We tried to get on numerous lakes yesterday with hip boots and broke through all the edges. still ice out there once you reach it but  Things are going fast. Water is riseing fast. the hwy 22 access is completely flooded and gaining elevation by the minute.  Might make a few Northwest runs yet but locally I wont be takeing the risk anymore been a weird year but honestly i'm ready for the long rods to come out!
